That's the idea, at least. I'm walking westward from New York City for nine months or so.
If everything goes according to plan, I'll be in Oregon when the clock runs out.
If nothing goes according to plan, maybe I'll end up in Peru or Mongolia or Pennsylvania.
You can read all about the details of my trip
if you're so inclined.
Hope you had plenty of water to share. By the way, the mystery bees were really “buggin” me. I think I may have identified them. check out this site. http://bugguide.net/node/view/126921
THAT is amazing! Thanks for posting! I found a bee site – but I just didn’t have time to look at ALL THE BEE images. I didn’t realize the variety of BEES that existed!
It’s actually a species of fly. Weird.
I didn’t notice that! A FLY! I’m going back to that website!
I didn’t even SEE the word FLY on this page – but there it is:
Bee Fly – Systoechus
More – Thanks to google: http://www.cirrusimage.com/flies_bee_Systoechus_vulgaris.htm
Wow, that is cool, a fly masquerading as a bee! I take it they do the ‘pollinating’, too?
Good work, Marshall! I spent quite a bit of time researching that furry bee, and thought I came close (posted link back on the furry bee pic), but apparently I didn’t even close close at all. This is spot-on!
Ooooooooh yeah. If you’ve ever crossed paths with a dry wolf, you know what I’m talking about. It’s something you never forget.
How very random! :P
Somebody get that wolf a beer!
YOU ASKED FOR IT AND HERE IT IS – krausen-pilsner-fermentation
Let’s try this again – http://bobsbrewery.blogspot.com/2009/01/krausen-pilsner-fermentation.html
That is really cool. I bought a home brewing kit once and I never took it out of the box. Maybe I should try it sometime. Thanks for sharing, Don in Tennessee! Too bad Matt will probably not get to try one.
It probably is not as good as Yuengling, but I would try one! If you decide to make some from your kit, I hope you have a hopping good brew!
If the wolf ends up with a hangover, I can recommend one highly-appropriate cure: ‘hair of the dog’. (grins)
Hmm lets see….We have Cannes Lupos Jerky on that shelf……or ..no sorry all out of Red Wolf Beer…
I think it means….Touchdown…….! The wolf team is _ _ _ no longer. First goal in years.
ps…have a good Sunday all. A prayer will be said for all. Most eapecialy Matt. Stay happy see ya later!
May you find your happiness in your virtual world. Is it possible you could find the same happiness in the real world?
Oh for sure, any time on any day. Jeff has two daughters and that’s plenty of happiness right there! We can all find real happiness in the real world, just look at Matt’s pics. They are of the real world and they are beautiful. We all wish we were right there with him. But we are where we are and for most of us, we are happy. Happy is what you make it to be. Or not to be? is that the questions? : )
Dry as in not wet, dry sense of humor or what.
You did not see Little Red Riding Hood did you? I think I will howl-
Happy Sabbath to all including Dry Wolf.
Did you camp here last night Matt? .. http://russell.visitmt.com/listings/2274.htm
Wait til you see the lake at lewis and clark.. wow!
What the other post (pole) for?
Don’t become a dry wolf, Matt! We know you’re no longer shaggy – stay hydrated!
Wishing you the best, stay safe and …….thanks again for sharing your journey.
Dr. Perky calls!
Candice in Alabama
Hope you are feeling PERKY on this warm Sunday!
Dr. Perky (my 1 cup of coffee) always gets me going in A.M..
We’re having much needed rain down here in Alabama.
I don’t mind – it keeps the temps down. I just walked out the back door to feed 1 of my 3 dogs and it DIDN’T feel like an OVEN! Woohoo!
Hope the dogs are okay in this heat, which I’m sure they are but I always worry about animals as they are so dependant on us. And hope you’re coping as well in this. But it beats the snow to me. I’d rather have a little hot as long as I have the air conditioning to cool me off. : )
Sounds like a good name for a drink!
AHH- a cabin, campground and road and they al stay dry-
Dry wolf is a tributary of the Judith River.
Beth in California
I saw that Dry Wolf was a tributary of the Judith River. I wonder if they also have a Joan Rivers in MT? If they do it would be called the “Laughing River”.
Nah, it would be called the “obnoxious river.”
But of course Beth we were all thinking that….
thanks for the info!
in his travels, Matt has managed to pass through 8-10+ locations per week, but once he got to Montana that dwindled considerably to only 3 or 4. Just goes to show you how spread out the western US really is!
I believe that Montana is the second most sparsely populated state.
Well psh! Of course we all know what this means! Sheesh…of course…duh…
Do the links to equipment brands serve as an “affiliate” income?
I have a friend on the road (wilderness version) who could learn from that…
Oh. It’s yet another one of THOSE.
