Hiking Sticks


I sat down and finished two of the three sticks I’ve been hauling around for months.

The one on the left I pulled from the mud of the Yellowstone River at Columbus Montana. 
I discovered it was discolored gray deeper than just the surface.  Oiling the finished stick didn’t reveal any interesting coloration as compared to the other stick from Trout Creek (not in the creek), Montana.

I have seven finished sticks and one left to work on.  I’m not collecting anymore sticks until I get rid of what I have which is my goal this summer.  I have too many.

And for those of you who are keeping score, we had to move again.  This time on the other side of the wash  (Beans’ outdoor litter box) and down a bit.  We were over there where you see the two big RVs on the left who moved in across the road from us.  By the time we got relocated the white RV owner had his Noisemaker 3000 generator set up outside and roaring away.

Oh my! How is it all these noisy people want to be close to you! So sorry about that. Love your sticks. They look very sturdy and interesting.

I'm keeping score and I think you've moved 3 times too many. You should get a boom box and some ear plugs for you and Beans and play it when someone is too loud. Hopefully they will move so you don't have to. we camped for year and never had anyone be too loud. Times have sure changed!
