Debbie popped her head into my room this morning & asked if I wanted to go on an adventure w/ her today. Never one to turn down an adventure, I happily agreed, threw on my snow pants, & packed one of my day packs. We packed the pups into her truck & headed towards the Morrell Falls trailhead.
|Montana. Where even bad days aren’t that bad.|
Fast forward 2 hours & Deb’s truck is stuck in about 2 1/2 ft of snow on the side of a forest service road ~8 miles up. That was around 1:30 pm.
The “adventure” that ensued over the next 5 hours contained low of shoveling, breaking that shovel, running about 3 miles down the snowy road to meet a tow truck (at least I didn’t have to run on my tiny track today!), getting the tow truck stuck, getting the tow truck unstuck, hiking back up the mountain, more shoveling of Deb’s tacoma, a slight bout of swearing, & finally, just before dark, the freeing of both trucks & returning to normal roads. Did I mention that on the way back out we saw a sign restricting all vehicles other than snow mobiles on the read & that we were there illegally in the first place? That would of saved us some time… $*%@
|Chains, sand bags, and 5hrs of digging… just another Montana adventure|
