There was no significant growth on the Snake Fire near Yellowstone’s South Entrance Thursday. 25 firefighters aided by one helicopter and one wildland fire engine continue to monitor that fire as it is allowed to burn naturally for its resource benefits.

Firefighters are continuing their efforts to suppress the Packer Creek Fire about 28 miles north of Pinedale which flared up Friday afternoon as a latent result of a lightning strike earlier in the week.

My new used truck may be the death of me - October 23, 2014 Not long ago, I brought home a 1994 Ford F-250. It’s not much to look at, but it’s even worse to drive. About the only things it has going for it are that it’s mechanically sound, and it’s technically a vehicle. I’ve named it Clunk, for good reason. When you shift it into either drive […]
