Is anyone in the HPD still breathing?

Now that I have your attention...(if you've scrolled down this far, anyway).....

I admit I don't visit FTE as often as I used to, but I think it's a pretty sad statement as to how often people come here to post. Every time I come to FTE I have a look down here and see the same ole post sitting on top ... last post , what?... a couple weeks ago. The one before, a week or better between the next.

I see, from reading other posts in general chapter discussion, that other chapters are having troubles getting interest in even posting, much less Chapter activities. I don't have any answers, but am curious how many will look at this thread and wonder what the H FL55 is talking about? I suspect our leader watches the forum now and then...probably moreso than me.... so his post don't count. Ha...so there Matt.

This post is more of an experiment/morbid curiosity thing.

Hey guys... I get homesick for Montana every time I come to the HPD chapter, so I don't check in very often. I am planning to be in Billings at the end of June for the Harley Owners Group rally.

I usually take a peek see if anyone posted anything. I would think this would be a good time to plan some sort of gtg. Something in Sheridan or black hills, Billings or something would be a good idea, IMHO.

The HOG estimates there are going to be 20,000 bikers here over the event... its gonna be nuts... I've been drooling over them V-Rods since they came out... hoping to see a bunch of them...


I post a lot of gtg's usually shooting events, just that we really don't have a lot of guys... and work and school schedules interfere a lot... I work 40+ hours a week and I go to school all day, when the weekend rolls around, I don't want to do much...

Without looking at the calendar to see when May 6th is, I'd still suggest coming through Kalispell, meeting Tim and I and maybe even Tom Wolf, if he wants to come up from Missoula for a GTG. Michael... you tooo bud! May is getting close to the time it's kinda fun to go up to Glacier National Park and look at the last vestiges of winter in the high country.... and with a special LACK of an over abundance of tourists. The snow will be melting, the creeks high, water fresh, blue and ice freakin cold. Good spot for some photo shoots.

My mom wants to see Glacier sometime, just concerned whether it would be open... The 6th is a Saturday, after that, be wandering home, have to be back by the 10th for my wife's college graduation.. Might even be such that we could come up there first, but at this time it seems it will be on the way back.

Looking at my work schedule, I'll be working on the 6th, anyway. As time draws closer, we can work things out and see where we are. Either ya can make it or ya can't. Glacier is open all year long.. they just don't charge fees during the "off" season. ONly a few roads are kept open during the winter months, so that cros country skiers and others can still access some parts of the back country. Getting in and showing you around wouldn't be a biggie. We just may not be able to go the top of Going to the Sun Highway. Park crews have started plowing the Sun Highway, but depending on slides/avalanches, etc., it may not be open until June, minimum. There's still lots to see on what roads will be open by that time. Just a drive up to the "loop", if possible, would be a very enjoyable day trip, with lots of photo opportunities.

We'll take it a day at a time and see where ya go and when. We both have the rest of our lives to get to where-ever we be going or wanting to go.

The 6th is when we all have to be in Boise, and then I have to be back for my wife's graduation on the 10th, (if I want to continue to live peacefully...) so likely we will comethrough before the 5th if we can pull it off at all. If we can't pull it together this time, I'm sure there will be other opportunities.

I can keep a close watch on my next month's schedule and should be able to give you an idea of what days or nites I'll be working that week. Right now it looks like I have plenty of open time. I'll check in here regularly to see what's up.
