We So Needed This.....

Posted on July 11, 2012 at 5:00 PM Comments comments (0)

 

Barry knows how to treat a gal ~  as we had a steak breakfast then off to work he went and Ursa, Sierra and I headed out to pick up the trail on Ross Gulch Road. I don’t think I really understood just how badly I needed to be out again on the road (dirt – YAY!!) less traveled weaving between trees and creeks! And I probably should have been at least somewhat nervous after Barry’s comment about peo...

People who live here get lost back there......

Barry was kind enough to host me a couple of nights. I rode out from his place with Ursa …….yeah and about a block out, well people can have their dogs untied in the back of their rigs here in Montana (kind of woild to get used to as in Wa they have to be tied in and so you do not see many dogs in the back of pick ups there. These dogs barked at us as they approached to which Ursa in her infinite wisdom thought she should be...

Who Knew?

Sierra, Ursa and I made our way out of East Helena. The break did wonders for Sierra as she was back to her big sassy self! We had a little bit of street riding to do, but found a nice ‘trail’ off the road for the bulk of it. A few dogs had to bark at the big red dog, and of all dogs, Ursa had to make a statement to a cute pittie (behind a fence) who was also trying to make a statement (it sucks when that happens and you are on top of a horse – it is ...

24 hours of pig in cow country

Posted on June 16, 2012 at 9:20 PM Comments comments (0)

Cut out 2-3 miles of detour (there could have been a fence I didn’t see, but may have been worth the attempt).  Kathy S gave me a call to see where I was and said the news woman and she were on their way. They met up with Sis and I about a half an hour later, and Kathy had an ice cold ice tea for me – How Nice!! They hooked me up with a mic and did the interview (I don’t think it was one of my better moments, as I was tired and hot – this co...

Over Mullen Pass

Bill and Becky own the Lawdogs Saloon in Elliston. When I left in the morning I said I just might stop by if it was ok with them and use their restroom and refill Ursa’s pack with water. I hadn’t anticipated a lunch!  I had Sierra tied up outside and Ursa got to come in and hang out in a cool saloon. She even got a bowl of water (who says a dog can’t drink in a saloon??? ;) ).  It was a nice day that was slowly warming up and today I would b...

I Hope That's All You Saw

Posted on June 16, 2012 at 9:15 PM Comments comments (0)

It is amazing to me just how much room there is on the off side (the side vehicles do not drive on) of a guard rail! Pam and Jim made a big ole breakfast before I had left and in our conversation they mentioned how tight  the road was in addition to the curves. It was kind of nice as Pam said she was going to worry about me until I got to Avon. Having this discussion had me ask as to whether they thought Ursa and Sierra  would fit and it was their thought it...

I bet he wishes he had a horse

Posted on June 9, 2012 at 4:15 PM Comments comments (0)

It is amazing the things I come across as I am riding off the beaten path. Today my leg was between Gold Creek and Garrison. The railroad runs parallel to the hwy and Sheila was certain the service road went all the way through ~ so gravel service road or hwy??? Hmmmm… ok, no brainer -  go the less traveled way (or so I thought). Having made the decision to go the rail service road seemed like an even better idea when I saw that there were cattle guards ...

I would have never believed you

Posted on June 6, 2012 at 8:55 PM Comments comments (0)

The night before I still did not know where I would be staying the next night, let alone a couple more down the road. I was so hungry and eating something warm and filling (like a burger) sounded so good. I passed 3 restaurants as I rode through Drummond and noticed one had wifi. That would do just great and I could get a couple things done while I ate. Well Drummond goes to bed early and come 8:30 ish all were closed down. But no worries…look a bar with food! In...

The things you can learn

Posted on June 6, 2012 at 8:50 PM Comments comments (0)

After yesterday events, this day seemed a little mundane. Actually, I don’t think mundane is the right word.  It was a relaxing day for the most part. Not riding the interstate allowed Ursa to come along and all I had to do was to get Ursa and Sierra synced up again, but that only took about a half an hour (getting where they will both respond to the commands without a big fight with me). And it was a great road to ride ~ I saw all of 5 vehicles. Ok, the...

Sometimes you just have to face what you would like to avoid....

Posted on June 6, 2012 at 6:55 PM Comments comments (0)

At one time or another there are things which we really do not want to do, and do our darndest to avoid doing them…. Sooner or later we still have to do what it was that we would give our eye teeth to circumnavigate. This was the day I had to face up to the fact that I would have to ride the hwy. It really was inevitable, I just had done my best at avoiding it and now had to face up to the fact I had run out of options and the only way forward was sucking it up a...
