Lookout Tower / Wolf Mountains

Uncategorized

My life is changing – spending more time alone. Something symbolic about my weekly commute to the Lookout Tower here in the Wolf Mountains. 

  
One chapter in my life is closing and I really have no idea where I’m going or what is next. So, I go to the Lookout and think. 

  
For the first time in a long time a woman was kind to me and for that I am thankful. 

  
I am most thankful to my Crow friends who allow me to stay on their land, love me, make me laugh and freely give! Woody, Benny, Holly, Ashley…thanks for friendship! Cherished! 

  
So, no matter where my boots land…Lodge Grass and these mountains are forever home.

$50,000 K – 50 YEARS OLD – DREAM!

Uncategorized

DSCN3833My birthday is coming up – the big five oh – 50! I am growing my hair and goatee long to celebrate and it will all commence on April 15th! One of my buddies asked me what if ya got $50k for your birthday – what would you do?

I thought about that all weekend long – the truck broke down again and looks like a water pump needs replaced. But wow, $50k kinda like lottery winner time. I know what I would do –

I would buy/mount an old Alaskan Camper to my old diesel truck – pack up my meager possessions and  go out on the road. Chloe would ride shotgun and I would plot my course all over these backroads USA. I would visit Facebook friends, friends that supported me when I was down and almost out, one Hell’s Angel that saved my life, a Mormon kid that I owe, my old classmates, my old students, Curns, Hank Will –  and my cuzins far and wide, my favorite medicine man in Arizona, not my ex-wife (cause I wanna live to 51) !  I would travel and say thank you to all the great people that created me and keep a log of all of it! Then publish that log in what is called a book!

Then I would come back to Lodge Grass, Montana and settle – because really this is my home. I love this rundown, poor community. Real people live here – good people – even tweekers with good hearts.

A man can dream….

Coffee with Sasquatch

I kept getting advertisements on Facebook “buy coffee from The Sasquatch Coffee Company” and I kept thinking Oh geez another company trying to make a fast buck off my buddy Squatch. I finally started tooling through their website ( http://squatchcoffee.com/ ) and somehow landed on the “free sample”! I enrolled because heck it was free and figured nothing would happen!IMG_20141222_105408975_HDR

Bam, Sasquatch comes knocking on my door! Well, in the form of some good good coffee! Allow me to digress – 20 years ago, South Korea (pre Starbucks), and I had to send to the states for good coffee (Pete”s Coffee). So, I love love love good coffee! I opted for the Howl in the Night coffee “A dark french roast offering a caramelized taste accenting the pronounced earthy quality of Sumatran beans, complete with a deep deep complex body”. This coffee is so so so good! It has a taste that Sasquatch and I both enjoy – earthy, woody, with a long aftertaste that is so incredible.1419356753433

I love this coffee –IMG_20141222_105322883

I will have this coffee with me this next season of Squatching up in the Big Horn Mountains here in Lodge Grass, Montana – I know, I saw Sasquatch this last year near treeline up near Windy Point. Don’t try to 4wheel up because it is Crow Indian only! Reservation Sasquatch – and yes, he has been seen many times and I have listened to many stories involving the Big Horns and Sasquatch. Well, that is another story!$_57

Thank You for the great coffee – 

No, I don’t get paid for product reviews! Okay, no one ever asked me – and since this blog does cost me $$ – I probably would. (If you are in the mood to donate HIT the Paypal donation button!)

shoot across the river as the dogs go after the Mtn Lion –

00 Buck – then head out on the atv to give chase –
get stuck –

Lights, Phone, everything went out talking to George Noory!

Uncategorized

I am about 3/4 of the way through my two hour interview and my phone goes dead, my lights turn off, and all the electric hum we never hear is gone – the dogs are going crazy outside! 

I grab my Remington 870 (no, I do not rack a shell into the chamber – one is always there) and walk to the fuse box. Everything is good – phone in hand – I call the emergency number for George Noory! I am totally freaked out at this point and go on with the interview.

Always watching – now wonder what the cam will show in the morning?

Thirty minutes later – interview finished and the wolves never come in this close to the house – they are letting me know they listened. 

You are what you drive – Gay = Subaru?

I am in Bozeman and I (of course) am driving a huge 1 ton truck. I start looking around for parking spots and I am a keen observer – Subaru’s,

Subaru’s everywhere – Subaru’s ! Now, I know that Bozeman is the gay capital of Montana – and I know that the Subaru is the gay car of choice but really is everyone gay? ( http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-505123_162-43140309/gay-friendly-cars-is-subaru-number-one/) no I am not making this up.

the-2013-subaru-xv-crosstrek_100386148_mThe whole gay thing really does not bother me – it is a personal choice that along with abortion, gun rights, and whether you read Grit magazine, just so you do not try to force your choice on me. Libertarian – I digress…

So, I have two 1 ton trucks – what does that say about me? Really? Poor gas mileage – built Ford and Dodge trucks, one gas and one diesel. I just am curious about what all my readers drive? and why ?

and there really is no place I would rather live than in and around Bozeman – simply beautiful!
