   Newsletter from Montana



February 2012



While I usually post 50 photos or more for each of my listings, I now also have a photo gallery right on the front page: http://montanahereicome.com/ The photos I took are mostly from Red Lodge and surroundings, but also one from the lake in the Yellowstone Park and one from Darby with Trapper Peak.

On my financing page I added contact information to our local banks, which are financing land: http://montanahereicome.com/finance.htm

In Minnesota it used to be a tradition to park an old car in the middle of a frozen lake and then to take bets for time and day it will fall into the water. I don't think they do that anymore, but Mike Olson, our broker in Minnesota sent me a nice photo of his family and I posted it on his website: http://minnesotahereicome.com/mike.htm Mike just listed a comfortable home in the heart of Hawley - which is between the booming city of Fargo and Lakes Country in Minnesota -2,319sf with 3 bedrooms, 2 bath and garage for just $124,900 http://minnesotahereicome.com/Seasons

Mike also wound up with a repo - a large lakefront home on half an acre in Pelican Rapids, which is about 45 miles SE of Fargo and 16 miles from Detroit Lakes. The home has 7 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms in 4,388sf of living space plus a 3 car garage! The home was originally listed for $900,000, now the price has been reduced to $699,000 http://minnesotahereicome.com/Pelican

In Montana I listed a gold ore mill. It has been there a very long time, but only recently got permitted. The owner is looking for a joint venture to process the ore that is sitting there on its 20 acres of deeded ground, but there are other tailings to be had all around it. An estimated $3.6 billion worth of gold was reaped from the area around Helena during a 20-year window in the latter part of the 19th century. Its gold-mining success meant that the town of Helena claimed some 50 millionaires, the most per capita of any city in the world at that time. Well, with the gold prices going through the roof, this might be a good time to get back into the business. If you have gold fever, look at http://goldandcoal.com/Mill

To help out Joe Morales, who is publishing the "Montana Dreams" Magazine with real estate ads across Montana and interesting articles about the area, I volunteered to distribute the Magazine in our area. You can see the magazine on line at: http://montanahereicome.com/MTD.htm
So while I was jumping in and out of the truck for a few hours, I also always turned around in my seat, while lifting a stack of magazines to the front seat. At the end of the day my leg was hurting. The next day I couldn't walk. I contributed it to old age and stayed in my chair for 23 days hoping it would go away. It didn't. So I broke down and made a Chiropractor appointment with Dr. Pickering in Billings. I hadn't seen him in years.. Well, sure enough, my sciatic nerve was pinched by one of the lower vertebra. He freed the nerve and - to my amazement - I could walk out of the office and I am back to my former self, how about that? Dr. Pickering has a special stretching table, which most other Chiropractors don't have. He also told me in order to keep it all where it belongs to heat my lower back for 10 minutes (I use a rice bag) and then pull the knees to the opposite shoulder and to turn my head all the way in each direction several times a day. So far so good!

Staying stationary for three weeks, not only made me finish a pile of paperwork I had to do, but it also let me discover a podcast with interesting interviews about health and wellness: You can subscribe for free with iTunes "Underground Wellness" or watch the interviews as videos on: http://www.blogtalkradio.com/undergroundwellness
I especially like these interviews:
Why we get fat with Dr. Taubes from January 14, 2012 and
Primal Body-Primal Mind with Nora Gedgaudas - Feb 23,2011


While doing all my paperwork, I found Word for Windows to be an absolute nuisance when you have to work in several documents at the same time. Why can't it have tabs like the browser? Well, fret no more, I found the solution. For $15 this little program lets you have tabs in Word! http://www.extendoffice.com/product/office-tab.html
To me it was a tremendous help and time saver.

Have you heard of skijoring? It used to be a means of travel in the Nordic countries, whereby a skier is being pulled by a dog or a horse, and nowadays also by snowmobiles, which can pull a whole gaggle of skiers on just one rope, sometimes used in the military for rough terrain. Of course nowadays skijoring is mostly fun and games. Whitefish in NW Montana always puts on a big skijoring event with horses in January and here in Red Lodge we will have the event at the beginning of March. Whitefish has the skijoring races as part of their winter carnival and used to have the racers going right through downtown, which wasn't deemed safe anymore after one of the skier flew through a store window. http://distinctlymontana.com/article/rush-ski-joring
Here in Red Lodge the skijoring races are held at the Rodeo Grounds, where skiers sail and jump over obstacles and negotiate slaloms while their horse is going at a fast clip. It sure is fun to watch to see who can complete the course the fastest and without mistakes.

If you like snowmobiling, the Beartooth Highway - soaring to 11,000ft across the Beartooth toward the Yellowstone Park from here sure lends itself to such a venture. If you start in Red Lodge, you will arrive in Cooke City for a good rest and then continue into the Yellowstone Park along the designated trails with a professional guide. All recreational snowmobiles operating in the park must meet Best Available Technology (BAT) requirements. Most, but not all, four-stroke snowmobiles satisfy this requirement. All snowmobilers in the park must travel with a commercial guide. Here is a list of approved guides, if you come from Red Lodge, you would use the Cody entrance in the East of the Park: http://www.nps.gov/yell/planyourvisit/wintbusn.htm

Enjoy the rest of the winter until my next newsletter at the end of March!

:-)
Best Regards,

Dorothea Lowe, Broker
