The Sledgehammer – Version 2.0

Greetings from the Middle of Nowhere

Filed under: Wanderings — Brian Lutz @ 8:33 am

If there’s anyone out there who actually reads this thing on a regular basis, you might have noticed posting to be a bit light recently.  For about the past week or so, I’ve been traveling, first visiting my brother, sister and new brother-in-law down in Provo Utah, then heading up north into Montana where I just spent the day at Yellowstone, and I am now posting this from the Chico Hot Springs resort in Montana, about 30 miles from the north entrance to Yellowstone (which I found based on a recommendation made by Robert Scoble on his Blog about a year ago.)  It’s not quite the middle of nowhere, but you can definitely see it from here.  The place has been around since 1900, and in some ways looks every day of its 107 years.  On the other hand, in spite of its age, it has a huge pool fed by natural hot springs, and many of the furnishings are still original.  Given the lousy luck I’ve had with hotels over the course of the past couple of trips I’ve taken, I can’t complain too much.  Oddly enough, the Wifi connection here seems to be the best one I’ve found on this trip so far.  Unfortunately, the wiring here looks like something installed just around the time when someone decided that the whole electricity fad was going to stick around, so there’s only a couple of outlets in the room currently taken up with chargers.  That means I’ll have to make this short.

 More on the trip once I get home.
