Hello. I know I haven’t written for a while. And here I’ve been in Montana already for an entire month!
Montana has been keeping me busy! I arrived at broken like ranch on June 10.
This is a 40 acre rental property ranch with a great big meadow in the middle and the properties for rent are scattered about on its outer edges. I’m on the back edge part under some trees so the Rv is nicely shaded.
What have I been doing? So far, I’ve been to Glacier National Park six times, driven it’s ‘Going to the sun road’ three times, I’ve driven up to The jewel basin hiking area, but I barely hiked there at all (that’s another story).
I’ve gone up and partied in the town of Whitefish which is about an hour north of here, and I’m sure I’m missing something else.
Yes I am, I got to see the infamous Bigfork Fourth of July parade! It had such a hometown feel to it! I don’t usually dig parades but this is one I would see every year.
And, well, I somewhat have learned how to and helped put up a real teepee!
Change of subject, no transition, (this is something we used to say in my family when it applied) Almost everyone asks if I’m lonely doing this. I had a lonely day yesterday, my first of this whole trip. I’m better today. Doing this solo has been interesting in terms of self exploration. At times I’m feeling happiness, contentment, and peace. At other times I still feel the same old internal angst. Loneliness. Questioning why we are here. Wondering if there’s something wrong with me.
Sometimes I feel like I’m an F’ed up chic who’s just trying to find her way. At other times I feel like this is perfect for me, the right place to be right now. Am I a drifter? A traveler? What am I? (Well, no need to define it, Kelly, that’s part of the purpose of this entire journey. Isn’t it?)
I think I just let myself get into my head a little bit for this past week or so. That’s not unusual for me, but it’s unusual for this trip which I’ve been on now for six weeks. I think the longer I stay in one place the more I’m settled so I have more time to get ‘into’ my head. (And that is NOT a good place for me to be.) My feet have tread upon that place far too many times before.
The girls are well, and I’m still good, y’all, see below.
More adventurous posts are soon to come, I just wanted to update you as to where I am and what’s been going on.
Thank you for reading!
