It is 5:00 o’clock am on Saturday morning and I can hear the rustling of the trees as the wind gusts pass through them. There is a light rain coming down at the moment. According to the weatherman we have a pending storm moving in on us today with high wind and rain. If this weather pattern continues across the state we will likely be looking at increases in the size of the current fires that are eating up the eastern half of our beautiful home. While rains can help fight the fires, high winds only excite the blazes. While we need rain due to the drought across the state, it might not be a good thing if it comes with the predicted winds.
Mia and I have been living in our travel trailer most of this year both on our trip and since we got back. We have had some discussions about the travel trailer and we have both come to the conclusion that we probably won’t travel with the trailer anymore. We had to try the RV lifestyle but it isn’t for us from this point on. In fact, yesterday I put an ad on Craig’s List for the trailer and the membership at Gold Bar Nature Trails. We are going to sell the travel trailer.
That being said, we still like to come up to Gold Bar and spend time enjoying nature and relaxing with friends. To that end we discovered a park model unit for sale on a different membership lot and we are now in the process of purchasing that unit. It has much more living space and we can still come up and enjoy our family, friends, the vast wilderness and the facilities.
Our grandson Zach is coming up to spend a couple of days with us. We will likely feed him and he will be off to take his hikes. We won’t get to see much of him but I hope we have time to make some plans for a trip to Montana later next month. He and I will drive over and spend three days in Glacier National Park. He has a couple of hikes planned and wants to do some fishing. I want to go back to Polebridge for some Huckleberry Bear Claws while he is out climbing.
There have been no other developments recently. Other than the stock market sliding we consider ourselves pretty lucky.
Hope all is well and thanks for stopping by.
