Montana Retreat

I reckon it’s long past time for an update, but this one will be short because I think some bit of information, however brief and unpolished, is preferable to letting another moment slip by with nary a word. The past month has been an absolute whirlwind of change.

We moved out of the motorcoach and delivered it to its new home in Florida. We bounced from one La Quinta to the next on our way from Fort Worth, TX to Denver, CO, all five of us and enough stuff for five months of life on the road crammed into and on top of the Subaru. We said goodbye to our dear, sweet George during our short stay in Colorado. We drove to Proctor, MT by way of Grand Teton and Yellowstone National Parks and moved into our current Airbnb for a two-month stay in beautiful Montana. We swapped the Subaru for a Ram Power Wagon, reasons for which you will learn soon enough. I believe that brings us up to this moment in time, when I am sitting at the small table in the small cottage on a not-so-small piece of mountain property with stunning views of Flathead Lake and the valley below. More changes are coming, folks!

Our storage unit, full of the stuff we didn't want to replace when we settle down again, along with the stuff that will come along in our next home on wheels.

The Subie, all packed up and ready to go. George is NOT excited.

George's spot in the Subie. All of our stuff had to fit in half the backseat and in the roof bag - great practice for minimalism!

Thankful for all the hours of Tetris I played on my Game Boy as a child.

George, about a day before we had to say goodbye. We miss seeing his sweet, fuzzy face, and Idgie misses her best friend.

These yurts near Old Faithful in Yellowstone had me thinking of owning some property some day with one or two on it. If only they had more windows.

How's this for inviting? This is the east-facing porch on the cottage we are staying at in Montana.

Jenn and Idgie step out on the porch to say good morning to the neighborhood horses. The Flathead valley can just be seen in the distance.

A rainy day gives Black Lake a haunting feel that had my imagination churning in high gear.
