More nice trail.

DiscoDan - CDT - Aug 23, 2010 - Journal Entry
A windy night last night but the tent held up just fine.  Sounded as if the wind was more up in the trees than at ground level.   Slept in until 0630 and we were on the trail by 0700.  It took us all of about 30 minutes to get to Fletcher Pass so we actually got there before Kathy did.  Fortunately I had a good book I've been reading so I got a little reading in while we waited.  It wasn't much of a wait before Kathy showed up along with her trusty side kick, Lincoln.  Hot coffee, bagel with cream cheese and a sandwich for the trail was the order of the day.   It wasn't long and we were back on the trail slack packing to Rogers Pass a little over 12 miles to the north.  The trail today was great; easy to follow for a change.  Several times we were out in the open hiking along some ridges and had some great views.  It was mighty windy and reminded me a little of Franconia Ridge in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, very nice to say the least.  Made it to Rogers Pass by 1230 and just as we came out onto the highway Kathy drove up so our timing was pretty darn good.   On the way back to the RV we stopped at a McDonalds in Helena for a quick snack.  This McD’s had a more robust dollar menu which I was glad to see again.  The dollar menu at the McD’s in Deer Lodge is not very extensive.   The weather this morning felt very Fall like, cool and windy and lots of clouds.  By afternoon the sun had come out and started warming things up a bit. It ended up being about a 2.5 hour ride back to Deer Lodge from Rogers Pass.  Kathy sure put a few miles on the truck today!   I opted to not go out for dinner tonight.  Instead, I had saltine crackers with peanut butter and then made myself a serving of couscous.  I haven’t even put a dent in the couscous I bought for this grand adventure, what was I thinking when I bought so much of this stuff.  Oh yeah, I was thinking “what a bargain, a buck a box, how can I go wrong?”  Well, in retrospect, I believe that was extremely flawed thinking.  Now I need to be on the look out for a “1,001 Ways to Fix Couscous” cook book.  Oh well, live and learn. (ha!)   Looks like we’ll be staying in Deer Lodge tomorrow and not relocating after all.  The brakes on the truck have be acting up so Kathy will be taking the truck to a Ford dealer in Helena to have them checked out and repaired.  Better safe than sorry so tomorrow will be a “chill out” day.  I’m sure I’ll find things to do to keep me busy.   Guess that’s about it for now.   Disco
