Apologies if this bothers some.  I think looting will be an issue at the site—some to make a quick franc, others who want mementoes. Here’s my thought—cut the charred timbers into small pieces and sell them for a small fee.  People who aren’t billionaires would feel like they’re helping, and they would have a piece […]

This is a difficult post for me to write, so please be patient with me. Desperate times call for desperate measures, so I must ask for your prayers and help. For those who read my post, What it Means to Be a Caretaker, you know I gave my time and efforts to taking care of […]

Huckleberry Man

 

I have a story to tell about the Huckleberry Man. It seemed that all my sources from pickers had already sold out, and my only recourse was to buy from stores or other commercial outlets at a much greater price. So, I went to Hungry Horse and purchased one-and-a-half gallon of frozen berries from a grocery store. Some hours after the purchase, Kaylett called and said she found another source of freshly picked berries, one-and-a-half gallons for $45 less than from the store. So, I grabbed those up as well. So, I had three gallons of berries and wasn’t sure when Randy would arrive to claim them. I put the fresh berries in my freezer but Randy arrived about an hour later, and I gave him the fresh berries, as had no idea how long the other batch had been frozen or when picked.

Now, Kaylett’s friend decided berries were still in demand so he went back to Glacier Park where he thought there would be more berries, without the bears knowing where or other people for that matter. He did not find any more berries in a week’s searching, as it is about time for the bears to go into hibernation. It was at a high elevation and the bears go to bed for the winter fairly early. He was about to drop into a lower ravine to look for more berries but he saw three young men stop beside his truck and began to swarm it. He chased the young men away, but now is afraid to leave his truck, as he thought it would be stolen before he could get back to it if he left.

And to make a bad story worse, when he tried to leave, discovered his truck wouldn’t start. He did make it to a high ridge on foot, to text Kaylett, explained he was stuck out in the wilderness, could she get him some help. He gave her accurate coordinates so she could find him. However, it was 10 o’clock at night, she didn’t know the area, so she called the Sheriff’s Department for help. Her friend’s cell phone was not only out of a service area, but also had run out of charge, as he couldn’t start his truck to charge his phone. Two different sheriff departments, Glacier County and Flathead County, claimed they couldn’t ping him. And then claimed they couldn’t find him. One county claimed he was out of their jurisdiction, the other claimed they were too busy. Kaylett spent 48 hours trying to get him some help from the “search and rescue” units. Please Ricochetti, do not get lost in Flathead County MT, as you just may stay lost. Kaylett finally got another friend to drive her into the wilderness, two days later, and her Huckleberry Friend was exactly where he had said he was. Kaylett spotted him and his truck immediately. The poor man was about frozen, as well as had run out of food, as he had eaten what few huckleberries he had found.

Of course I have lots of questions:   like where does this post go when I click Publish?  I would guess into the Member Feed.  Guess I’ll find out… I entered a Post, but can’t access it outside of ricochet — how does that work?  Surely there must be some common source for answers to […]

Am I wrong to believe that if I or one of my love ones were stranded any where in the world with-in a reasonable distance from a Ricochet Member and I needed some help, that by simplying saying “HELP I’m in xxxx,  is there a Ricochetti that can help me get unstranded.”   I would […]

This post is just a quick THANKS! to the great members here.  Through Ricochet I’ve been able to meet some astounding people (even if only through posts and audio meet ups), and hardly a day goes by where I don’t learn something here.  I’m not going to name names because I don’t want to be […]

I have an acquaintance from high school who has it rough. She’s raising two kids and has a third in the custody of her incarcerated ex-husband’s ex-girlfriend. She manages raising the other two kids on a server’s salary. She’s asking for donations on this website, but so far it’s been 24 hours with no donations. Her […]
