eets a guy treep

At least that’s the excuse I’m using for not going off to Montana with the Twinz of Terror. Actually, I wasn’t invited. Mouse did receive an invitation. She has to work (and so do I).

Anyway, the Twinz of Terror and the UU’s son Tim are in Montana visiting The Beautiful Gay’s sister, The Beautiful Patty. They surprised TBP by taking her *daughter* with them. I did not realize that was a surprise until about the day before they flew, so it’s probably a good thing I didn’t do something dumb like spill the beans on facebook! Anyway. Very cool surprise.

I hope I do get to Montana (and a whole bunch of other places) one of these days. It was not in the cards for me. My sojourn as the 21st Century Nomadic Enigma has taken a toll on my vacation time. I still have some but I am eeking it out with great care.

Anyway it was really a guy trip. I do not have the right kind of footwear to hike in mountainous terrain. Our Canadian friends were right to be skeptical of my Chaco sandals, although my attire was fine for the trip to Betty’s Cove. And there are grizzly bares bears where they are going (I think). And I am not a happy camper. I mean, I like to cook and eat and sleep outdoors, etc. I am just not crazy about bares bears and bugs. And I NEED water. I mean water that I can bathe and wash my uber-thick hair in. I don’t necessarily need a shower. A lake or decent sized stream will do, assuming there is privacy. Yes I am a camping wimp. What can I say?

This photoooo was taken by the GG last night. There are ‘hattans in the wilds of Montana! Last I knew, the Twinz of Terror and Tim were headed off into the wild for some sort of overnight camping-hiking trip. I hope they have a good time. I think I’ll stop at that.

    MT is very pretty–but only the west side of the state. (sort of like WA)

    I returned to STL with a whole 0.6 hours of vacation in the bank!
