« Part 10: Movin' On Part 11 of Another day, another nickle series Part 12: Home again, home again. »

Hi everyone. I’m back in JV for a few hours and thought I’d up-date all of you. The ranch job lasted all of 30 days before I did like everyone else has, I bagged the sucker. The guy can’t remember what he says from one day to the next. So…...... I called Yellowstone Outfitters and we went to Jackson Hole. We wound up with the wagon train. I drove teams on the wagons and Carleen wrangled dudes except for one week when she cooked. Slept in a tent and ate in the dirt. Just right!!! Carleen is done and I had to bring her home so I am back on the computer for a minute. I will be there until at least the 1rst of November for hunting season. After 20 years I’m back to guideing hunters. At least part of the time. It seems I have a lot of things to do over there. Well, it pays the bills. And it’s kind of fun, if you like the outdoors. Maybe in the winter I might get back to the shop. I hope everyone is doing good work and all are very happy. Talk to ya later. I need to get back to the mountains.

Thanks Thos. I think you have the job we all dream of, but couldn’t stand if we had it.

Hi Tom;

Good to hear your still kicking! Sounds like an adventurous summer for sure.

Gotta love eating dirt.

Some advice for you: don’t take the vice president out as a hunting guide. He has tendency to shoot ‘em.

Welcome back Thomas!

Even though for only a short visit.

It sounds like hunting, is at least something you enjoy doing.

We’ll see you in November, & Good Hunting!!

Hi Thos.

Good to hear from you! Wish I could be with you on that hunting trip. I have been starting to clear shooting lanes for the up coming bow season. My shop is coiming along slow but sure. Wiring is done and all that is left is covering back wall and windows. Then I can hang the cyclone and run the duct work. Then the real fun begins. Start buying the equipment!

God Bless

Hi Thomas, glad you checked in with us! Sounds like things have been quite adventerous for you, or is that simply day-to-day life??? I think Karson was organizing a search and rescue team… not necessarily to get you home but at least get you a laptop with satellite internet acess! ;-)
