A little catching up to do

Conestoga Campground
White Sulphur Springs, MT

Wow, haven't blogged in over a week.
Not much going on here, but we're counting down the days
until we hitch up and go.

There's been a lot of fires in the surrounding area,
and surrounding states.
The other day we could barely breathe from the smoke!
The mountains were invisible even..

Every once in awhile we take a ride over to the reservoir.
I forgot to take my camera the other day,
so I had to catch this Bald Eagle with my phone..

I was surprised to see him sitting on the telephone pole.

We've been planning our route to the eastern part of the country.
George and I are paying a quick visit to Mike & Terri Young
while they're still in Illinois before we hit Ohio.

We also made reservations to stay at 
in Charleston, SC.
My Mom will end an American Cruise Line vacation
there on December 26th, so we thought it would be cool
to spend some time there after Amazon.

I may have some news about our workamping gig
after Amazon as well.
We've been looking at finding another paying job
in Texas somewhere from January - May or so.
There's a very cool resort that we talked to about an opportunity.
As soon as we know more, I'll let ya know!

Thursday we head to Glacier for a few days..
lots of pictures to come later this week!


  1. Sounds like you've been pretty busy arranging all these great plans for when you leave the smoke filled west. The fires are so sad and it is so bad for people's breathing. Glad to hear you are heading east. Looking forward to hearing about your very cool resort.

  2. I hope the fires are out in Glacier! We hear all about it but then nothing when they end. I hope you get the job you want in Texas, how fun! We sure hope we see you someday in the future.

  3. I think we might be able to do a face-to-face visit with you when you hit SC. It's been too long without an Owens fix! ;c)

  4. wow....leaving so soon. Is it because of the fires, or you completed your assignment there?

    1. No, our commitment was until Labor Day, so it's time to move on!

  5. Really glad it worked out that we'll be back in Illinois as you're passing through. Can't wait to see you guys -- it's been too long!!

  6. Hey if youre in TN - I am on the way to SC

  7. We are so getting 'hitch itch' as well! Getting used to the haze around here as well. You have sure seen a lot of Eagles! Good luck with your potential job in TX!

  8. Have you thought about gate guarding in TX. It's good $$$.
