11/10 to 12/6/2016 – Uncle Mike is an adventurous force to be reckoned with. He has an endless collection of wild stories from his wanderlust filled life.

Winter So Far…

12/1/2015 to 1/31/2016 – It was a mighty unusual transition back from Costa Rica’s hot, humid,  sun-filled tropical climate to NW Montana’s cold, grey, snow-filled winter one… but we were really excited to be home again.  We were easily distracted from our climatic concerns by the thing we missed the most while adventuring: our beloved big white […]
