  • You Can't Park Your Frog Here
    Saturday, June 19 @ 01:00:00 PDT
    Hey, listen, I like your frog-mobile, I really do, but rules are rules and even though I don't know what they are I'm pretty sure I can point and mutter this quietly: You can't park your frog here.

  • Problem Found, Ya Got No Motor
    Tuesday, June 15 @ 03:00:00 PDT
    Okay this is wierd. I'm no mechanic or anything but when I heard that this Subaru couldn't do more than about 10 mph I had to have a look under the hood. What I found was alarming, the darn thing had only bicycle pedals chained into the tranny and no motor.

  • Butte Visitor Center Must-First-Stop in Historic Mining Town
    Tuesday, February 03 @ 03:00:00 PST
    As an ever-traveling tourist, it's easy to give up the easy "gimme" destinations in any given town. If you're in San Francisco, you need to check out the Golden Gate Bridge, or if you're in Shanghai you need to check out the Great Panda, but when you're in any town, you really should stop in at the local visitors center, and Butte Montana has a great one.

  • Seabrook Vacation Helps Us Get Away, Relax, Dream
    Friday, December 12 @ 02:00:00 PST
    Life can be stressful sometimes, and we know it as well as anybody. Our preschool, kindergarten and 4th grade lives are hectic. We've got homework that goes even beyond tracing letters and counting numbers, plus we have to play a bunch, plus we run one of the biggest syndicated parenting advices columns of the century. Sometimes we just need a few days to ourselves, and Seabrook, Washington is just what the doctor ordered.

  • Billings Visitor Center Great People in Great Town
    Wednesday, December 03 @ 02:00:00 PST
    A town so far east we barely made it out there on our first trip is Billings. Once you're there, you're half way from the Pacific Ocean to Minneapolis, and with our schedule getting busier and busier with each passing day, we weren't even sure if we'd make it out there, but boy are we glad that we did.

  • Exploration Works Museum Tricks Kids to Learn During Play Time
    Tuesday, November 25 @ 02:00:00 PST
    If you have an occasion to go through Helena, Montana, and I can't see too many reasons why you would, but I'm not here to judge, only to help you make the most of your time, you should spend at least a few hours at the Exploration Works Museum. It's as great as any of its kind of place, far better than most, and the location just can't be beat.

  • Western Romance Adventure Dinners Gives Best, True Cowboy Experience
    Monday, November 17 @ 01:00:00 PST
    Easily the single best experience we had in all of our many Montana adventures was the evening we spent just east of Billings in the fine company of Pappy and his family at the Western Romance Company Cowboy Dinner. It's a horse-drawn wagon ride, an evening of authentic cowboy cooking, and fellowship with the single best people we met on the whole of our trip to Montana.

  • Cowboy Surprise Shocks Birthday Brother
    Monday, October 27 @ 16:00:00 PST
    Iíve heard bad things about summer brother birthdays, and I believe all these no-guests--showing-up rumors because I have exactly such a brother in my own family. A couple years ago our parents sent out more than 2-dozen handwritten invitations before school let out asking parents to bring their youngster friends, and not one of them even had the decency to RSVP saying they werenít going to come.* Thatís probably why my parents take his summer birthday so seriously, and this was another really great gem for him.

  • Fire Engine Tour Barely Ok, Still Novel
    Wednesday, October 22 @ 02:00:00 PDT
    I donít know if itís just me, but I feel like I keep getting the worst assignments on the trip. Fine, fair enough, Iím the junior editor so Iíll write it up. Virginia City, Montana, is nothing but a tourist trap, and one that felt a pretty hard hit from the high gas costs this summer, what with being basically in the middle of nowhere. So this nowhere tour of nothing got hit hardest, and the real victim wasnít the operator, who owns everything outright, but us poor tourists.

  • Western Heritage Inn Actually Kinda Terrible
    Sunday, October 19 @ 23:00:00 PDT
    Montana was a trip like none other weíve ever taken. The people and places we saw were so great that after almost three weeks in big sky country, we took a month back home, and just had to return for another three week. That doesnít mean all of it was perfect though, and there were a few glaring exceptionsÖ The Western Heritage Inn in Bozeman was one such bone in the smoked salmon fillet, and it deserves mention for it.
