My family has been going to Ingebretson's for their Swedish saausge for decades.Craft stuff? A while ago I decided part of the reason I like to work with Celtic knotwork is to solve the puzzle of how to fill a space with a complex design -especially if I can make all lead back to the same single strand interlaced around itself. I also came from a crafty family mom sewed, knitted, needlepoint and experimented with a few other crafts and even had a silk flower business for a while doing weddings and things. Dad did some furniture refinishing and wood carving and was always handy at a number of things.State Fair? My early memories are having to help set up competition displays for my mother because she was in a local Garden Club. -Things like having to wrap paper around milk bottles to disguise them before they were used for displaying cut flowers. Whereas I have memories of going to Renfest on my own with friends in high school. So in addition to my interest in history, Renfest probably has more associations with fun independent of parents, whereas I never really went to the State Fair just for fun with friends. Although I do remember enjoying things like the antique cars which was something my dad and I would go see on occasion outside of the fair. (He probably would have liked to fix up an old car if he could have afforded it.)

Erica:I honestly did not hear what you heard .I don't reacll getting the feeling that James was laughing at everybody who gets up and does an honest day's work , so I'm not really sure where you're getting that. What I heard was a guy who fucked up, who admitted he fucked up (for whatever reason) and was telling his story. I didn't get the feeling that he was trying to say, Oh, look at me, I'm so awesome and everyone else is a sucker! But again, I've been in low places, so I may have an insight into this that not everyone has.

A little pricey compared to other campgrounds in the area. Nice facilities though.

We have stayed at KOA campgrounds a few times in the past and have never been overly impressed. West Yellowstone KOA breaks that tradition to some degree. We had heard good things about this campground from acquaintances and those reports held up to our first-hand experience.

First off, this place is huge with over 200 RV sites and "kabins", a swimming pool, mini-golf and bicycle rentals (the rentals are not so much "bicycles" as various kinds of pedal powered vehicles). The bathrooms are pretty typical campground facilities including showers. There were often lines at the showers although there were enough of them that that they turned over pretty quickly. The patio BBQ was a nice touch serving breakfast and dinner and the fudge bar in the store was an entertaining addition (the "Moose Tracks" is definitely to be experienced).

While the sites are not overly wide, they do not follow the pattern of other KOAs we have visited that have RVs situated "butt-to-butt". Pretty much all of the sites (aside from the overflow area) are either pull-through or back-in with no one behind you (although the electric hookup sites along the southern end back up right next to the freeway which makes them quite noisy I would guess). there are plenty of trees to provide decent (although not exceptional) shade and privacy. The hookups were some of the most convenient that I have experienced.

The town of West Yellowstone (MT) just a few miles to the east offers a nice selection of restaurants and shops. We had expected to head into Yellowstone park for at least one of the days we were staying here but there were enough other activities to take in in the surrounding area that we didn't manage to get to the park until the day of our departure. Instead, we visited the Earthquake Lake Visitor's Center and the area surrounding Earthquake Lake and Hebgen Lake on our first day there. My strongest recommendation goes out to the "Grizzly and Wolf Discovery Center" which we visited on day two. We ended up spending an entire day there and might have gone back had we had the time (the admission price is good for two consecutive days). It was awesome and they are in the process of adding a Raptor/Birds-of-prey exhibit which will make the facility that much more enjoyable.
