  1. I can't believe how much exercise you got moving Yellowstone to Colorado to snowmobile and then move it back to Wyoming. You are a very ambitious woman. You live the dream that 99% of us only dream about. Keep it up girl. Bud

    1. Trust me, it was a heck of a job. Putting it back was even worse because it had set roots.

  2. ....and what do you do when you're not being so damn lazy? ;)

  3. It would be easier to ask you what you don't do!!! But not nearly as interesting as reviewing what you've been up to for the past several years. You've lived and then some!! Keep it up, my friend.

  4. I am in awe of your ambition, travel interests, and energy! No wonder you have such amazing stories to share!.

  5. Holy smokes! I want to be like you when I grow up (whoops, I'm 60). Fantastic pictures, and so inspiring...your spirit has urged me to get up and go! Thanks, Gullible.

  6. So did the doctor buy it or did you take in your laptop as proof?

  7. AMAZING .. ABSOLUTELY AND POSITIVELY AMAZING .. I wonder how many of your readers who do NOT have web sites .. fully realize the time and the effort and the work-it-is to put these posts together .. STUNNING .. ABSOLUTELY STUNNING GULLIBLE .. I stand-in-awe of you .. Smiles .. Cap ..

  8. SEVENTY ONE .. as in 71 .. photos above .. this is BEYOND THE BEYOND Gullible .. I need to sit beside you some time and watch how you do these posts .. I AM SIMPLY IN-AWE of your abilities .. With Joy .. Cap ..
