I have just taken a new job in Great Falls, Montana. A new state and new areas to explore.

It feels like we are over the hump. Still busy, but everyone is leaving Dutch and heading south. Three big boats doing so this weekend. Still, we are busy as usual.
The last few days have been rainy, with wind today. A couple of 57 mph gusts. Big deal.
Some volcano in Russia (?) is causing flight issues. You may know more about it than me.
The whale video seemed to be popular. I just posted a follow up with some video I missed, as well as some other snippets.
AND I just booked some tickets for the last half of October for a cruise featuring the SW USA. This includes Albuquerque to San Francisco. I will be trying to hook up with DAVE in Livermore, CA as well as THE CHOLLAS in Tuscon. Oh yeah, also doing some house hunting in AZ. Sounds like a working vacation.
OH YEAH, trying to play some golf. Landing in Albuquerque to see CASA and get some golf in. Then off to AZ. I want to play some private courses in Tuscon near CHOLLA that are letting some public play, as well as Lake Chabot near DAVE, a course I played a lot when I lived there 25+ years ago. Very hilly, with views of San Fran from across the bay. And a par SIX to finish. Mostly downhill.
Too much planning for me, where I want vacations wide open. Will see what happens.
There is a lot of work going on in Dutch. Road work. There are not a lot of route options here. Normally just one, in a rare occasion two. Well, all paved roads are getting repaved. Last week was a nightmare when it all started. They blocked the road and kept it blocked for 20 minutes as one lane drove through. Then the other waited. It was terrible. Our DUMPSTER was full and needed emptying. The company doing that was sitting in traffic all day. They finally got our dumpster emptied, and now it needs it again.
The traffic blockage seems to have been relieved the last couple days, maybe due to rain?
Meanwhile they are putting in the last breakwaters on the new small boat harbor. And they are ready to start lengthening our runway by a few hundred feet each way shortly.
