Well maybe not exactly...but it's one of my favorite western titles...
Signal Mountain Lodge, Grand Teton NP---Summer '06
One of my first views from the employee dining room...looking at the marina office and the mountain range.
The Good: Other than the possible "uglies" below...just about everything. The employee dining was very good 90% of the time (there are times when personal preferences will get in the way, where the food…Continue
To whomever sent me the following email:
"Thanks for joining My CoolWorks. Regarding your blog post, we wish you all the luck in the world in building your business but we work hard to build ours and our intent is not for it to serve as your billboard."
I was not trying to use your blog as "my billboard." Maybe I did not realize what your site was for, as I was just introducing myself. For future reference, before addressing me with a nasty email, watch the way you…Continue

I've been here over seven months now and am facing another fall/winter. Am wondering how I will do this time. When I arrived, it was 22 degrees below and I knew back home in Texas it was about 50 and sunshine. There is lots of sunshine, but the cold is killing me. LOL.. I guess I'm a whimp after all. I can go tent camping with a kayak, hunt my own fun, clean and cook it, but have problems with the cold. Guess I better stock up on som enew winter duds.. do you know if they make down…Continue
We can watch the eclipse together!
As I stand in the -97 degrees with a wind chill of 8.8 I look to my right and see night's full moon and stars, I look to my left and see the weeks-away sunrise coming with a hint of orange, yellow, white, and baby blue blending into the night sky above. I look back to the right and see an aurora coming alive for one last presentation.
Find out when it will happen in your time zone at…Continue

is the logistics support for the trauma and fire team. It was pretty
exciting dashing around on a snow mobile pulling victims behind us, carrying
them up the two flights…

I've made my decision. I'll be the Second Cook at the Kay El Bar Guest Ranch in Wickenburg, Arizona. The title sounds less impressive when you find out there are only two cooks.
I'll be there on the 23rd of September and the gig lasts through the first weekend of May.
My last day at Tamarack is the 12th, and I'll be moving out the next day. Before I head down to Arizona, I'll visit a few friends and family back in Wisconsin. I'm going to take the Empire Builder train from…Continue

Subject: for all you non-belivers...
For those who don't believe the first signs of the sun are visible, yes it's a long time exposure (67s) and with the naked eye you will only see a little bit brighter horizon in that direction (no colors), but it is visible…

BBQ in the mechanic garage, having a BBQ indoor isn't the best idea even when the grill is hooked up to the venting system it doesn’t always work when you are continuously opening the lid… but a tournament of horseshoes distracted us from the smoke! May 25th.
“Big Fat Kevin” 5 K race inside the station. BF5K 2nd. Annual Race. It took 24 laps to equal 5K. That was up and down hallways and staircases. As you noticed, each team dressed up. Super heroes,…Continue
