This past April, I planned another working trip at the Mountainview Hideaway. I was excited because my sister-in-law Peggy flew down to Dallas and we made the LONG 1,800+ mile drive to the house. We left at 4 AM and drove 1,000 miles that first day, spending the night in Casper, Wyoming.

I was in the midst of doing a "Flat Stanley" project for our youngest grand-daughter, so I taped him to a paint stirring stick and took pictures along the way!

We left Casper at 5AM the next day and made our way into Montana!

We were making such good time that we stopped in Bozeman at a store that carried rustic furnishings and stretched our legs for an hour. We arrived at the house around 6:30 that evening which meant it was light enough for Peggy to be able to enjoy the scenery as we got closer and closer to the house. After I gave her the tour of the house and the property, we decided that we would only bring in our luggage and relax for the rest of the evening.

After a good night's sleep, we enjoyed our morning coffee and a fire in the dining room wood stove then set out unloading the van; which was overflowing with stuff.

We managed to unload everything from the van with the exception of the heavy, coffee table that was still in the back. Charlie and Dave had loaded it up for me and it was going to take some manpower to get it back out. We changed clothes and went into town to get breakfast and do some grocery shopping. The next day my best friend Brenda would be flying in to the Kalispell airport and then our work projects would begin.
