Cowbone and Darkhorse Lakes
For a couple of summers solid, I completely focused on fishing mountain lakes. But in the summers since, life's other obligations and summertime joys have been our foci. But last weekend we made it up to a couple of lakes in the distant Beaverhead Mountains...

Cabin fever
So the truck camper didn't work out for us. It just wasn't quite what we'd hoped it would be slash couldn't take us as high up the Jeep trails as we'd hoped. We sold it a few months ago, and while we plan to get a camper again in the future (a pull-behind),...

Brother Boges
Our brother Boges We said goodbye to Boges three weeks ago. He was pushing 14 years and had developed kidney disease and bladder cancer. I learned about a month after adopting him that he "wasn't great" with other dogs. He tore into a friends' dog and they ...

Duckworth Vapor Hoody
I don't care for sunscreen or bug spray, so I like long sleeves even in summer. But sleeves are too warm for many high-summer high-noon high-elevation days. So this summer, I tried out a breathable long-sleeved shirt: Duckworth's Vapor Hoody . It's a paper-...

Looking back on a temporary, mid-life retirement
Now that it's over, I can see clearly how good our little "sabbatical" was. For the past three months, we've been on our version of the great Northern Rockies road trip. Three months away from work, camping and fishing, packing and unpacking, pooping in the...

Time travel
Step 1: Travel to the American Prairie Reserve and find some bison to watch. Step 2: Tune your radio to 88.1 out of Fort Belknap which regularly plays tribal drum and chant rhythms throughout the day (this music incidentally is completely badass; I'm totall...

Month 2, day 2, of a brief hiatus from our careers
A soft breeze sweeps through our detached Lance truck camper as it sits alone on the quiet yellow prairie about 45 miles south of Malta, Montana. "Aayy-meee-eee, what'cho wanna doo-oooo..." serenades my dog and I via a far-off AM radio station as I type dir...

Now accepting intangibles: Why I'm okay losing money to get published
The first 90 years or so, they go by pretty fast. Then one day, you wake up and you realize that you're not 81 anymore. And then you begin to count the minutes, rather than the days and you realize that pretty soon you'll be gone and that all you have, see,...

Southwest Montana mountain lake notes for June 7, 2017
Current ice-out level: I don't think it's crazy to think that you could get to about 8,500 feet in the mountains around Southwest Montana right now. Of course it depends on many factors and is always a crapshoot, but Liz and I easily got to 7,800 feet a wee...
