Recently I ran into Bigfoot while buying seeds and he gave me a tip: "Plant your corn early."
I told Bigfoot of our Meet Up and he agrees that this Meet Up will be the most EPIC Meet Up evah!
Bigfoot shared that he lurks here at the Great Orange Satan. ;D

Bigfoot said to look for him as he tends to hangout in Glacier.

Glacier is in my backyard. I have a few acres eight miles from West Glacier. No improvements, but the teepee poles are up and there is a crick running through the place. If anyone wants to stay there, I'll put up the teepee and provide a portapotty. No houses within eyesight so it would be a kinda sorta wilderness experience. Ojibwa is a friend, will talk to him when I get back to the Flathead in May. We could use the place for a picnic or staging area for a trip up Desert Mountain ( interesting geology) or a water day at Hungry Horse Resevoir. Unfortunately, it will be too early to pick huckleberries but people can always get a huckleberry milkshake in Hungry Horse which is only a couple miles away. It's also a great place for mountain bikes if anyone wants to bring a bike. There will be lots to see and do. If you have never been to the Flathead, you won't regret the trip.

Perhaps dinner at the lodge on Saturday night. There will probably be a presentation that night as well.For those who are 62 years and older, there are lifetime $10.00 passes available: Overview of the Senior Pass
Johns Lake Loop is an easy trail even for folks who are out of shape.
Avalanche Lake is a bit more strenuous, but there is some great scenery.
The Hidden Lake Overlook is at the top of the pass, but may be strenuous for those who are out of shape.
For those who are really, really adventurous:
I could put on a sweat lodge ceremony.
or just a pipe ceremony,
or just tell some traditional histories.

In July 1947, something happened northwest of Roswell, New Mexico, during a severe thunderstorm. Was it a flying saucer? Was it a weather balloon? What happened?
Famous for what is now known as the Roswell Incident, the town of Roswell hosts an annual UFO festival and the International UFO Museum and Research Center where you can decide for yourself about the flying saucer that allegedly crashed here in 1947. Whatever you decide, you’re likely to be intrigued by the many exhibits and programs about the crash itself and the phenomenon of UFO research.
