    I live in a beautiful mountain town, but unfortunately inhabit a small apartment, so I do what I can with regards to homesteading. I live with my two cats and lots of art supplies, fabric and yarn/fiber for spinning. Glad to find this forum!

    Hey, welcome! We're practically neighbors, over here in NW Montana! Glad to have more people from the area on here!

    Cool that you have "gypsy" in your username too! You're into fiber arts, that's awesome...and one of the few areas we lack in around here. Maybe some barter will be in our future?

    Bartering would be oh-so-rad!

    Pretty amazing time of year to be up here, eh? Doesn't get much more majestic that this :).

    You've got that right! Almost makes up for the long winter! Love it here!

    If you ever wander over the state line this way, send me a personal message/private message/whatever those PM's are called.

    They have a Fiber Arts festival in Eureka, I think it's the first weekend in August. Do you ever come to that?

    WELCOME!

    I was just in Sandpoint yesterday, spending my tourist dollars. I am about 50 miles south. Beautiful country!

    Sounds like you are close to my ol' stompin' grounds. I have peddled my bicycle through that area - NorthPort to KettleFalls to Colville to Chewela to Spokane to MetalineFalls and then back home again to the north-side of the border :congrat:

    naekid..."peddled your bike"? As in, you tried to sell it??? Hope you got a pile of money for it!

    OH! You meant "pedaled"! (just picking on you! lol!)

    That's impressive mileage! How cool!

    Ahh, its not that bad. Only 'bout a 4hr car-ride 'round trip, easily done on a bicycle on an average vacation (setting up the tent for sleeping, eating out of the seat-bag).

    I hear ya, naekid. Nothing like rolling down the road on a bicycle, admiring the countryside in peace, quiet, and fresh air, for a vacation or camping trip! Not as hard as most people think.

    Small problem, I am in Alberta, not Washington or Idaho, so, I don't think that it would be right to join that group ... sorry.
