Default Big Sky, the Sequel.....

My brother Andy called and said the Rainbows were hitting in the Gallatin Valley, any chance Ryan and I could come out for a few days? It was not gonna happen if we drove but the RV could get us there on Friday in time for lunch and afternoon fishing.

Beautiful early departure over 1 of 10,000 lakes....


How a teenager responds to a 5am wakeup call.....


The Missouri - north of Mobridge......


We are not in Minnesota anymore, just west of Bozeman!


Nephew Matt's first RV ride and first broken arm......


Wild flowers on the Cinnamon Mountain Hike


View from the top of Cinnamon Mountain....Nice!


Early morning departure from Bozeman...


The ride at 11,500 brought us home in 5 hrs with 10 gallons left in the tank. The view was not bad either.....


These planes make special long weekends possible. Keep Pounding!!!!

Fishing pics on my brother's camera - I'll post those later.

Rest of the pics are here:

Pete, great pictures as usual. Tracked you all the way back, nice ride. APRS doing funny things lately, like it didn't show your last 60 miles or so at all. Maybe it does now.

Pete,
The photos and the trip look great. Your adventures remind me of why I spent 5 years pounding, wiring and asking you and others for help.

What is your secret to getting teenagers out of bed in the morning?

what amazing scenery, stunning and thats why we fly
here in South Africa, VFR ON TOP is illegal and i wonder why, as its legal with the FAA which i would say has a helluva lot more experience and know how than our CAA to allow this, weird

Pete,

That first picture is enough to spend a few years building an RV, right there!
