From the Homestead Cabin Log
Friday July 10, 1992 Homestead
We left town at 9:00. L. drove all the way. We stopped at Deep Creek Cafe for a bowl of
soup. Got here about 2:00 - followed Smith's in, and Joann & Hank came soon after. The
rest of them straggled in until about midnight.
Saturday July 11
More people came - it rained all night and all day. We're glad we stayed in the "outer"
bedroom this time. For the first time I didn't get up on the cliff.. We spent the day
inside or on the porch - cards, puzzles, reading and eating.
Sunday July 12
Beautiful day - cooler. Kids finally got to climb the cliff. Don & others picked two
pails of ripe goodeberries. Everyone left except Cecil, Dorrie, Charlie, Hank & Joann, Ray
& Lois and L & I.
Monday July 13 - Home again
Nice weather. L. drove all the way home. The only stop we made was for gas at Harlowton.
We left the Homestead about 10:30 - got home around 3:00.
