Off to Big Sky Country

Holland Lake In only a few more hours, we're heading on Raible Family Roadtrip #9. Number 7 was when Julie, Abbie and I traveled up the California coast, and number 8 was when my Dad and I drove my '66 Bus to Denver from San Diego. This time it's going to be much more special. The end destination is my favorite place on earth. We're heading for the cabin, which is a log cabin my grandpa built in 1918. I was born in one corner, my sister in the other, and I spent the first 16 years of my life there.

Spending the 4th of July at the cabin has been a long standing family tradition. It's always fun to watch the parade and the O-Mok-See in the small town I grew up in. The Swan Valley is a very special place and my friends that visit often return. It really is one of those uniquely special places on Earth.

I love road trips. Julie hates them, but tolerates the fact that I love them. The main reason we're not flying to Montana is because the flights are very expensive. It's a 1 and 1/2 hour plane ride and a 15-hour drive in the car. It's a good thing we have a DVD system in our Odyssey for the kids - 15 hours is a heckuva long trip.

While I was at JavaOne last week, Julie did some research and discovered that Yellowstone isn't too far out of our way, so we're staying there tomorrow night. I've been to Yellowstone a few times, and every time it takes my breath away. I can't wait to see the look on Abbie's face when she sees an Elk right outside her window.

The best part about the whole trip? It's sure to be the family, laughing and creating memories. But I'm also going unplugged - which I haven't done in a while. For the next week, I'll be without a laptop and refusing to check voicemail or e-mail. E-mail is going to suck when I get back, but the peace of mind while I'm gone is sure to be priceless.

Ahhh... Wonderful. I dont mind Roadtrips as long as I'm not driving :) I was also planning a roadtrip with my family to "Pondichery" from Chennai along the East Coast Road but I guess it needs to wait a while. Pondichery was famous for the French Settlements and still retains a lot of French History and Culture. And the best part is the liquor is tax free and cheaper than in chennai :)) Have a good one Matt, and yeah Enjoy your 4th.

I have been to Yellowstone once in my college year, I'm still haunted by the daunting images of the great nature, the wild, and the views of the park. That was simply the best adventure experience that I have ever had. Enjoy the trip, Mr. Raible!

Perhaps the elk will just seem like an odly shaped VW bus with a giant lobster on it... only the elk doesnt have roller skates on =o)~

I'm incredibly jealous, Matt. I miss Montana quite a bit and am looking forward to my trip to our family cabin at Seeley Lake in August. Have a great and relaxing time.
