What I've learned so far...

from my trip to Montana...
  • they will pull the plane back and kick your ass off for 2 hours while fixing something with the de-icer even if it's not cold enough to use the de-icer?
  • that when you fly with a bunch of military people, especially ones that have just come back from Iraq, their luggage gets first dibs? Apparently, mine was on another flight to Colorado Springs because my bag wouldn't fit in with the khaki duffle bags and guns.
  • that when you live in an isolated community such as Pinedale, Wyoming, you can smoke the ganja in the room behind the "lobby" while checking in guests? Who the hell is gonna arrest you?
  • that you need to stay in your car when you take pictures of buffalo? They are not only ugly but apparently mean and fast.
  • when you've been driving for 18 hours, anything and everything is pretty damn funny but don't, no matter what, do not go into the local American Legion Hall for beer. You're not one of them.
  • you can tell that there are deer everwhere along the road by their "eyeglow"? Who knew?
  • little boy deer run around the yard in circles chasing each other just like little boys?
  • that bear poop out corn whole just like humans? It's not a pretty sight.
  • that when you step outside in the morning and are greeted by several cats, they are not coming up to you because of your winning personality. Feed them.
  • that you could shoot someone in the mountains of Montana, put him or her through the woodchipper, dump the parts in a pond, and no one up here would ever know or find out? (Don't ask me how I know.)
  • that 10 o'clock in the morning is never too early to get into the hot tub with a glass of wine.


  • and, most importantly, you can become good friends with people you have only met through bloggy world.

    So is it incredibly geeky...nerdy...dorky...to post a comment on your blog when you are only 3 feet away from me, furiously typing emails???

    If so...then so be it.

    OMG! Girl! you are sooo funny....

    I am laughing so hard here....

    Thank goodness Pam posted a comment... other wise we would be thinking that it was Pam in the woodchipper.... or Leesa...

    OH LEESA!!! Where are you ???

    And I agree... 10 am is NOT to early for the hot tub and wine...

    Hey! I have a bottle of wine! If the bear's not invited, can I come for a visit!??

    I think we should have a party at Leesa's while she's gone!

    We were staying here so y'all didn't have a party at Leesa's while she was gone. Now behave yourself. (Last one in the hot tub is a rotten egg.)

    You weren't supposed to mention the bodies ;)

    this was hilarious...I just came from Pam's blog and after reading yours, I'm a little concerned that she's asking Leesa where the woodchipper is...
    :P

    About that de-icer thing...yeah, seriously...you need it. It's not that cold on the ground for it, but at altitude it's frigid...I have to use carb heat (de-icer) even occaisionally in summer in the Cherokee and I don't go above 6 thousand feet. But sending your suitaces to CO springs is crazy..like those Iraq boys can't live without their guns for a couple more days here in America..sheesh! MT bound suitcases are a NECESITY (SP?) I'd be ticked! On the other hand...now you can go shopping ;P

    That's a funny list. I've been keeping up with your adventure and it sounds like you are having the best time.

    I am an English major, too; so, I loved the ! post.

    Can't wait to hear more about the adventures in MT!!
