    Flathead Lake

    August 21 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 55 °F

    Arlie's first night camping in her car!

    It was quite a day. After leaving Cut Bank, We drove south and eventually stopped at the Isaak Walton Inn so Arlie could see the train cars converted to 'hotel rooms'. It was rainy which made us both kinda sleepy. I think my memory was playing tricks on me: 1. I remember the Inn being much larger. 2. I don't remember the caboose being on a dirt road so far from the Inn.

    Then we drove on to Flathead Lake. We hadn't made any camping reservation since I couldn't find much. Eventually we found a little visitor center in a little town and found out about a state campground up the road. We drove there to see if we could find a site. It was already after 4pm. The only site available was the handicapped site. The woman in the site next to it said if no one with a handicapped license plate showed up by 6pm, we could legally take it. Arlie parked in the site and we went for a hike and came back about 6, and it was ours.

    We were awfully hungry by then and drove back to town for dinner. There was a long wait at both of the restaurants that looked good so we ended up at the grocery store, picked up a few things, and went back to the campsite to cook an easy simple dinner in the rain. Not the best 1st day of camping. And to top it all off, Arlie fell getting out of my van.

    Ich bin platt!

    September 19, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 8 °C

    Ohne Vorwarnung ist plötzlich mein Hinterreifen platt. Das macht mir nichts, denke ich, denn ich habe alles Erforderliche für eine Reparatur dabei. Dann jedoch muss ich zu meinem Entsetzen feststellen, dass meine Luftpumpe nicht zu den Ventilen in meinem Reifen passt. Was tun?
    Ich schiebe mein Fahrrad einen Kilometer weit zum Bison Cafe. Der Inhaber George ist auch Warm showers Mitglied. Nachdem ich einen Bison Burger verdrückt habe, fährt er mich und mein Fahrrad in seinem Pickuptruck nach Saint Ignatius. Auf den umliegenden Bergen liegt schon etwas Schnee.
    Bei Cocos bikeservice bekomme ich tatsächlich eine passende Pumpe. Abends repariere ich in meinem Motelzimmer den kaputten Schlauch.

    Guten morgen Uli. Mensch nun auch noch einen Platten. Nun ist aber mal gut. Dein Fahrrad soll doch noch bis zum Schluss durch halten. Gibt es dort keine unkaputtbare Reifen? Ich drück dir die Daumen, das dein Fahrrad die nächsten 1000 Kilometer ohne Reparatur durchhält. Ha dich lieb Gruß Heidi

    Flathead Lake SP / Finley Pt

    July 10 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 84 °F

    Finley Point is flooded with deer, cherry trees, and surrounded by a beautiful lake. It’s like we stepped into a Disney movie. We were warned that a black bear named Junior liked to frequent the campground but we never saw him. We visited the nearby town of Polson. Not much to it but enjoyed the low key stay. Wildfire smoke rolled in the day before we left. Eerily strange how quickly air quality and visibility can change. 😞Read more
