Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #16.6: MONTANA FOR A HAT

July 30, 2015

THIS MAP CANNOT EXPRESS the SPLENDOR
Heading to Red Lodge to replace a hat.

Purple or red depending on who's looking.

It was supposed to be gray but when purchased the hat was inside out.

It's been that way ever since.

I don't remember which shop I got it in but here's hoping there will be recognition.

More soon...

Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #16.5: LOST HORSE in SANDPOINT, IDAHO

July 30, 2015

POETRY POETRY POETRY
It is said (in my Atlas) that Sandpoint, Idaho is the prettiest town in America. If it's not #1, it's right up there. The train across the lake, just as Marilyn Robinson says.
ANYWAY, I had fun there thanks to my pal Christine Holbert of LOST HORSE PRESS -- who I met while teaching at U of Montana Western a few years back -- who is a literary bad-ass -- who is responsible or at least has her hands in all things cultural in Sandpoint, as well as many others literary fancy things in Idaho proper, as well as over in Spokane and Montana -- for inviting me to the Sandpoint Library to read with the fantastic poet and lake swimmer DEVIN BECKER winner of BOA's A. Poulin Jr Poetry Prize -- who drove up from Moscow -- and for summoning such a robust and interesting crowd despite the fact that all the bars (more…)

A billboard: "Wouldn't you be happier if your car was clean?"

NEWS FLASH: REPTILE HOUSE KICKS HARPER LEE'S BUTT.

July 28, 2015

BEST BOOK STORE IN THE LAST FRONTIER
Reptile House is the week's #1 BEST SELLER in PALMER ALASKA.

Alaska has good taste.

The stack of books was huge.

Harper Lee has had more then her share already anyway.

I told Palmer to READ IT SLOW...

I took a lot a care with those lines.

See THE TOP 10 LIST here.

Thank you FIRESIDE BOOKS, David Cheezem, and readers of the Mat-Su.

SINDWINDER BLOG POST #16.1: DETOUR #1 --DECATUR ISLAND, WA.

July 27, 2015

DECATUR ISLAND IS JUST NORTH OF LOPEZ--
Google Maps says one cannot get to Decatur Island, but that is not true:

1. No shops.

2. No restaurants.

3. No gas stations.

4. Several boats.

5. Docks. Seagulls.

6. Trees.

7. 50 residents.

8. One deer eating grass.

Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #15.9.5: READ ALASKA

July 26, 2015

I don't know how I will ever have a book bash as great as the one I just had in my old stomping grounds in Sutton and Palmer, Alaska -- kind of overwhelmingly wonderful.

Thanks all of you for coming out at the new SUTTON LIBRARY, at Turkey Red last night for an awesome dinner, and at FIRESIDE BOOKS today for book signing that pretty much wiped out Fireside's originally HUGE pile of books. Thank for sharing my party for Reptile House.

THANK YOU Nancy Bertels at the Sutton Library for inviting me.

THANK YOU Mike Dunham of the Alaska Dispatch News for the fantastic article.

THANK YOU especially and most to David Cheezem at Fireside for having faith we could pull this off. And we did. (more…)

SINDWINDER BLOG POST #15.9: CHICK RESCUE -- PALMER, ALASKA

July 25, 2015

RESCUED CHICKS -- PALMER ALASKA
Palmer was just the same as always

Though the mountains were taller now, 1000 feet taller at least. 3000.

New England has had this effect.

On the Glenn Highway, you never getting anywhere.

The mountains make your miles inches.

You try transit anyway.

Construction -- the same as always -- mud, dust.

Wait for the Pilot Car, turn off the engine, wait. (more…)

REPTILE HOUSE MAKES FRONT PAGE OF ALASKA CULTURE

July 24, 2015

Thanks much to Mike Dunham for being interesting and making me sound so good.

I am really excited (a little teary already) about reading in Sutton and Palmer tomorrow:

July 24, 2015. Reading at the SUTTON LIBRARY 5:00pm then Dinner AT TURKEY RED FIRESIDE BOOKS in Palmer at 6:30 pm.

July 25, Book signing FIRESIDE BOOKS, Palmer at 11 am.

SINDWINDER BLOG POST #15.7: DENALI FOR REAL THIS TIME

July 22, 2015

TALLEST MOUNTAIN IN NORTH AMERICA
20,322 feet.

Or 20, 237 feet. Depending on who's counting.

Big. Tall, Grand. Hulk.

The Great One in Athabascan.

We drove right by it. Just over there.

Base-to-peak rise = 18,000 feet, the largest of any mountain entirely above sea level.

Made of granitic pluton.

Lifted by tectonic pressures.

What is granitic pluton anyway?

Named for a president no one remembers.

Mountains like this raise such questions.

Five glaciers slide down it's shoulders. Cold.

A low temp of -75.5 °F . Windchill of -118.1 °F (more…)

SINDWINDER BLOG POST #15.6: HOT WATER AND WIDE AWAKE

July 21, 2015

THE ROCK LAKE at CHENA
Fatigue has set in.

A nap during Act I, Scene 4 in the park.

A nap on the drive home.

A nap on the way to adopt the cat.

A nap at the vets' during the 2 hour wait.

This has nothing to do with books.

The cat was stressed out -- puked after Shakespeare. (more…)

Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #15.5: THANK YOU FAA

July 19, 2015

FAIRBANKS ARTS ASSOCATION
Thank you Fairbanks Arts Association for a rallying the troops last night to The Bear Gallery in Pioneer Park -- in one of the best towns in America.

NORTH POLE VISITORS CENTER
Sent a few post cards from North Pole to a lucky few.

Saw the brand new North Pole Library where Reptile House is a part of the collection. It lives in in 54 other libraries in the US. The North Pole Staff looked it up. Thank Margaret, Ingrid, Tina, et al.

Big Santa waved at us on the Richardson Highway. Santa's Village. Candy Cane Streetlamps.

It rained and rained but good after months of hot.

The Eskimo Indian Olympic Games were at the Carlson Center. Ate fry bread with powdered sugar during qualifying events: the ear pull and wresting matches. (more…)

Denali, where are you? After waiting months for a glimpse.

All 20,322 feet of you?

You hulk.

YOU KNOW WHAT IT IS
Anchorage: day one.

Did not see a moose but I feel them.

Read with Frank Soos that rhymes with moose.

The day was warm, fat raindrops on occasion.

The dog with a cast.

The cat goes for walks.

The catalog has an X-rated section, found and retrieved from recycling.

It is an old home, the map etched in the brain

though the names are foggy, long lost friends.

The mountains.

What to say? (more…)

Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #14.5.9: SOLITARY PEAK

July 9, 2015

MT HOOD
We circled the Backside to get to Hood River, 26 to 35.

The slopes were clear and drop offs, blue ice in the notches.

The Backside gave way to orchards, peaches, cherries.

In Hood River the kite boarders were out.

The Columbia is big.

The wind blew the waves upstream -- into the faces of barges and tugs. (more…)

SINDWINDER BLOG POST #14.5: SEATTLE BY WAY OF MT. HOOD

July 9, 2015

SINDWINDING
Straight lines are so overrated.

To go north, we first turned a bit south, mostly east. Grisham then Sandy toward Government Camp but we were yawning every 90 seconds so stopped at Tollgate Campground.

Site 3 was next to the Zigzag River. The tent pitched below a little canyon edge.

On sleeping bags we lay in the sun, read, slept, ate chips lazily.

Mac and cheese was the perfect meal.

The road was not far but the river sound drowned it. (more…)

Along the Umpqua River
Highway 101 to 38 from Reedport to 99, which we were on but never found a sign for, to 5 to Portland, 405 then Lincoln, downtown. To review:

Sticky buns in Coos Bay, quiche and nutella brownie. Log trucks.

The tide was out. Seagull, raptors waiting for those stranded in a tide pools.

Log ships, almost full, would have to wait for high tide.

The railroad bridge turns sideways, makes room for exiting ships.

Who thought of all this? (more…)

Sidewinder Tour Blog Post #14: AVENUE OF THE GIANTS

July 7, 2015

BIG TREE / SMALL KIDS
On Avenue of the Giants

Your neck hurts.

You do not need sunglasses.

People speak French in pullouts.

Trees are called Grandfather.

The road is getting smaller as the trees get bigger.

You are a toy, a mouse.

You want to hug them for joy.

If only they could hug you.

SINDWINDER BLOG POST #13.9: LIGHT

July 7, 2015

Cape Blanco Lighthouse
The lighthouse could be seen for 23 nautical miles.

The first keeper lived there 38 years, the next 42.

The road was steep from campground to beach. Flashlights. A sliver of moon.

The camp hosts were friendly, though they had no change.

Firewood was $5 a bundle and we got some.

Showers for free. Water spigots in each sight.

The sound of waves while sleeping (more…)

He met us halfway, at the Campground near the cave.

Drove on to the stone house, to the mares let out and mustangs gotten in.

Scramble eggs, donkeys, and one new nameless goat.

A saloon had moved 85 miles with a bear rolled up with the knife that skinned it.

The view was long as was the ride into the box canyon. This is not fiction. (more…)
