Crazy Mountain Ranch.



Jessica and I won a trip to Montana, we had a blast.

Here's our activity list we signed up for before we left but it didnt end up like that.....

Day 2........snowmobiles and tubing
Day 3........skiing and snowboarding

We met great new friends and saw new places we never expected to see.

Day 1 consisted of having to get on a 9:09am flight to Denver, then to Bozeman in Montana.
Upon arriving there were buses to pick up about 100 other people. Upon arriving at the ranch we were treated
like royalty. Everything catered to anybodys need, I need to go on more trips like this.

When entering our room we looked on the bed to see lots of gifts.....now remember there was 2 of everything....

Vivitar digital cameras
Columbia sub-zero coats
TheNorthFace water-proof and insulated boots
thermal underwear
Oregon gloves
wool socks
Columbia Backpacks
camera bag with compases
check for $1150

lots of other stuff but cant remember the little things..........

Then it was off to dinner where they served ribs with all the extras, bar service was free and all-night long.

Day 2 was supposed to be a great day of activities and it was but it ended badly. We went snowmobiling
in the morning but at the very end Jessica got thrown off and she tried to catch herself from falling but
broke her right wrist/arm. We then went to the hospital that was a 40 minute trip to Livingston.
There the docter did confirm it was broken and had to get the Orthopedic surgeon to put her to sleep
and reset the bone and place 3 pins to keep in place.......... After the surgery she was a bit groggy but then
woke up and felt fine. Drove back to the ranch where dinner was about to start, we went and changed and
then ate sirloin steaks and enjoyed the rest of the evening with drinking, gambling and dancing.


Day 3 we were supposed to go dogsledding but since Jessica got hurt the day before we decided to go to
Yellowstone National Park. I have never seen such beauty before, I never thought such a place in America
existed, hey......I'm a city boy. After the 6 hour tour we went back to our rooms and took a nap until dinner
started. That night we had prime rib and chicken then went into the Livery to enjoy live music and tried
to get drunk.


Heres some pics of our trip......

I only wish I could go back.........


After arriving I asked if it was possible to possibly return to have another vacation there but they said it was
a private resort which the only way was invitation only.

Well, I hope I get invited again, maybe to the race school they have.

I signed up for promotions with Marlboro years ago and received numerous offers and tickets for Texas Motor Speedway races.

Coupons, Zippos, cookbooks, tickets and this trip has been given thus far.

Cant wait for more freebies.............
