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

It is a beautiful Sunday morning in Prospect, Kentucky. The trees and plants are all blooming and will be in full color for the Kentucky Derby this coming Saturday.
I got back in town Thursday as planned. My arrival was a bit early, so I drove to a local golf course I last played 25 years ago and got in a quick nine holes. It was fun seeing the old golf course again even though my level of golf skill was pretty weak.
Then I turned in the rental car and SPRING CRUISE 2013 was over.
17 days on the road. 8 golf courses. 10 states. 5400+ miles driven. 1 blizzard.
It was a good trip. Weather was more of a factor than I expected. Colder. There would have been a few more rounds of golf otherwise.
With the Dutch Harbor thing a bit up in the air, I was hesitant to jump in and take a second trip. Much less a train trip. But I will move forward with the second trip now. I will leave shortly after Derby weekend. There will be more Great Plains, more mountains. More golf. It could be the last road trip for a while, and I will take advantage.
Meanwhile it will be a nice Derby Week with family and friends. The big race is Saturday, but there are over a week of activities leading up to that. Fireworks, steamboat races, balloon races, parades, too much to list accurately.
I have not played golf since I came back, but that will change during the upcoming week. There are more courses I have not seen in years that I want to re-visit.
All of my stuff from Dutch will arrive tomorrow.
I heard from GNU and everything is going OK in Dutch.
