Out last weekend for the 4th. Took the. Boat out to beaver creek and it got too hot, so we went water skiing, got a shot of the ol man in his undies after getting him up on skis. All the ladies were waving at us as we went by, an ol man water skiing in his undies is a priceless picture

@ G ------

The old boy looks to be having quite the peaceful rest. My old girl (15.5 year old Golden Retriever) likes to partake in the same activity, only 24 hours per day...LOL. Sunrise on the Flathead is just breathtaking !!

Glad to see the air quality had improved overnight when I arose this morning. Was just terrible last night. Could hardly see & ash was falling out of the sky covering everything. The fires in the Rock Creek area (Whetstone Fire being one of them) flared up yesterday, which was the cause of our poor air. I hear the Moose Lake area was put on mandatory evacuations & restrictions were also put on camping in that area.

Hoping to get out camping here in the next couple weeks. I average about 52 nights in the trailer per season & I'm sitting at a mere 23 right now  :(.

So.....I'm leaving work Tuesday morning & the dash in the truck says "Check Right Rear Tire Pressure". I check the DIC & it shows a big fat zero for pressure in that tire. Exit the truck, glance at it, give it a kick & all seems fine. Manually check it with a gauge & it has 58psi. Hit the tire shop this morning & found out that these tire pressure monitors have small batteries in them & that one was dead. Hmmm.....Did not know that, not that I ever thought about it. Also found out that the TPM's must be replaced since the batteries in them cannot be replaced. Anyways, with them all being 9 years old now, I just had all 4 replaced. Figure since one died the rest are more than likely soon to follow. By the way, those little TPM's were $236 / $59 each !!

Have a great day everyone.....the weekend is almost here !!

G fish nice photos your dog looks quite comfortable in his bed. SpitzoMT  I hope the fire crews can get the fires extinguished so not to much of the wild areas of your state are destroyed. Those TPM's can drive you nuts ones on my vehicles always get set off by cold temperatures.

Wow.....How time flies.....Can't believe it's been a month since my last post. With the poor air quality & the fact that I'm "unlucky" enough to have asthma, I've been putting a pretty strict limit on my outdoor activities. We did make it out camping along the scenic byway between Wise River/Polaris for 8 days at the end of August & actually had great air quality for 6 of those days. The wife has pics she still needs to go thru & hopefully I'll have some to post soon. Don't know about y'all.....but I'm ready for some snow/ice because snowmobiling & fishing the hardwater sure sounds good right now !!

Here's a couple pics from one of my cameras lastnight. Walked up the sidewalk right between the garage & my truck. Pretty cool !!





Take care.....Hope everyone is surviving the smoke & safe from the fires !!

That's a very welcome sight there Mike. There's at least 2" of wet snow on my truck right now. Very nice to see, but the best part is the good clean air to breath. The 3 months of smoke filled skies was getting a bit old.

No more pics of that buck Steve. There's 3 of them hanging around town & this one is the smallest. I've been hoping to get some pics of the biggest one because he towers over the other two. Will definitely post if I do !!

Thank you for the reply SpitzoMT, I've seen several does in my travels around New Windsor,NY. some close to my home which is in a highly populated and dense business area . Guess there is still enough remaining woodlands to support the deer.

Quite the variety of weather today. Little sunshine.....little rain.....and some on/off snow flurries. Started snowing pretty good about 30 minutes ago & it's sticking to everything but the streets for now.
