THOMPSON FALLS, MONTANA

By: joealaska, 2:36 AM GMT on August 21, 2014

Monday morning I was getting ready to leave Metaline. The day before I noted there was a camper parked behind me. This had not been the case since I arrived. So now I had to move the RV to get the tow dolly accessible. Not a big deal, and it was done.

Then Tori came up and I wanted to thank her for the nice experience. A great camping experience. Easy, no pressure attitude. No page of rules. They have been there for many years, and I met several ...

AGAIN WITH THE MONTANA

By: joealaska, 5:45 PM GMT on August 19, 2014

Still having trouble uploading photos. There is a new page that starts OK and then it just stops. I found a way around it, but I have to load a photo, get out, get back in, and load another. So not a lot of photos lately.

Sunday was the first day in a few that looked sunny and warm. Bruce my buddy had been concerned about cold water temperatures. I may die 30 different ways, but I do not see drowning as one. Still, Bruce knocked on my screen door an...

KAYAKIN' POTENTIAL

Monday I will leave Metaline and head south to RT 2 EAST. Into Idaho and Sandpoint. I catch RT 200 and meander southeast into Montana. On the way I pass PONDERAY, ID which is the phonetic spelling of PEND OREILLE. I like it. It will take about 3.5 hours to get to THOMPSON FALLS, Montana, where I have booked a week for camping. Still in the mountains and high trees, but close to the wide open spaces that I want to see. That will be the next stop.

MCILROY AND MAGGOTS

By: joealaska, 5:47 PM GMT on August 12, 2014

I spent most of the weekend watching The PGA tournament from Louisville. Rory Mcilroy (not ROY MCAVOY, who was in Tin Cup) proved he is the best in golf, winning 3 in a row including 2 majors. Still, Tiger got a lot of headlines. I cannot believe he is still a probable player in The Ryder Cup. OK, enough golf chat.

Almost. Yesterday I played The Mine Nine, AKA Pend Oreille Golf Course, for a second time. The first time I did not know how to handle t...

METALINE, WASHINGTON

By: joealaska, 9:21 PM GMT on August 06, 2014

Sunday was my last day in Grand Coulee. I went back to Wilbur and played 9 holes to use my rain check I got from the day before. The storm that came through Saturday did some major damage near Spokane. Big trees knocked down on buildings north of town. But Sunday was very nice. The guy at the golf course told me I could play 18 if I wanted, but the place was pretty crowded and I stopped after 9. I went back and took one more look around town and the dam. I wa...
