Day 235

There is a good reason I don’t like to edit photos after 10pm.  Apparently I shouldn’t build stuff after dinner, either. We finished up about 11:30pm after working most of the day it got to 102F in Kalispell.  We broke for dinner at Famous Dave’s..and came back and put the bed board base section on […]

Day 234

More trailer building! The master cutter at work!  We kept coming up with stuff that fit and was straight or an actual 90 degrees.  That worried us a lot. The cargo portion nearing completion. Somewhat dubious looks…{!-{P Fitting the tent/sleeping compartment on top of the cargo section. And no, it isn’t a coffin. ~Curtis in […]

Day 233

The beginnings of trailer construction.  The planning has only been 31 years in the making… The basic under carriage. Checking on the frame fit. It is easier to paint before construction on some parts. Starting to attach the pieces! And as a reward for our hard work, I made a pineapple upside-down cake!  In a […]

Day 232

Another great change at Big Mountain (whoops!  Whitefish Mountain Resort…) is the summer activities. The Zipline that the GrandPop went on is one of them.  Here are a couple more: This is called “Strider”.  It is a motocross course…for little kids.  They ride bikes without pedals (see the closeup photo) and just push around the […]

Day 231

The real purpose of my trip to Kalispell, besides the Dailylife Grandpop’s 93 Birthday, was to build a camper trailer to pull behind my 1995 Goldwing.  My old trailer sacrificed a lot of parts for this! ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 230

From my recent trip to the Dailylife Grandfolks: Naptime!  Okay, my niece’s dog is awake.  For the photo.  He left me a present in the night, too.  No, not quite that…a sock he had eaten and barfed up just for me.  Left it in front of the bedroom door where I was sure to, errr, […]

Day 229

I was down by the River yesterday.  Here are two Kormorants.  And a couple interlopers… ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 228

I was down by the River yesterday.  Here are a California Seagull and a Redwinged Blackbird. ~Curtis in /\/\onTana! {!-{>

Day 227

I was down by the River yesterday.  Here are three views of the sunflowers, from the same image. ~Curtis in /\/\ontana! {!-{>

Day 226

Early morning in Kalispell. The Sun in One, Two (sort of…one and two small ones, anyway…), Three!
