Nice picture, I'm curious about that building next to the Merc.


Me too. I think I've been there, but can't place it.

Is there some sort of little building/antenna-something off to the side?


The cabin is on top of Wise Mountain (12k feet) off of the North Fork Swan river trail, also known as Garibaldi Gulch Road which start off of Tiger Road. That was one of several leftover mining cabins in the area that the FS 'somewhat' maintains. As in, they keep a roof on it, but that's about it. First come first serve, and they're free to stay in.

Some of you might recognize this spot. Hard to believe a few years back this was covered with several feet of dirt. Water was real low yesterday. Another good rain or two might wash out a culvert and you won't be able to drive this far.

I remember that it was quite a mess. Cool picture BTW. Thanks for sharing
I would like to get down there before hunting season closes down some of it. I really miss checking in on those spots.
I have the TJ back on the road so it could happen 8)

Hmm...

Well the house went up for sale last week (open house over the weekend) and we've accepted an offer. First round of inspections were today with another round tomorrow, assuming those go well we will be out of here on 11/9.

Got the building permit on the new place, and they start digging tomorrow/Friday.

Let's just say the stress level around this place is palatable right now....

Anyone know of any short term leases in O'fallon that allow a Cat? Need to stay in O'Fallon Schools, so we're kind of limited on our radius that we can work with.

Congrats! That is a blessing to have sold your house and to begin breaking ground on the new! We've felt your pain/stress...about every three to four years.

We've sold early and had to find other accommodations, and had to rent for a year + and then try to sell again. But this too shall pass and plus you get to hang out with a lot of cool folks this weekend to forget about all this stuff for a short while!

Yup! Really looking forward to the weekend at this point!

Going back and forth with the buyers on what we're going to fix (and not fix). Hope to have an agreement here soon about that

The city inspection went well, only a few minor things that were found, and I've managed to knock out most of them tonight. I should have the rest done this weekend yet so that we can get that re-inspection knocked out and on the books.

We have a lead on an apartment nearby, but if that doesn't work out, I'll fight the racoons off in Rob's shed :lol:
