Looking forward to that -- I'm ready to curl up by the fireplace with a cup of tea and my computer for a cozy evening of perusing!

How about adding on a turkey eating contest? Now that would require quite a bit of skill! And invite the Florida sharks to participate -- although I think I know who would win!

Here is one northern lake where the contest is still happening:

Definitely not on my bucket list!

It looks like Austin is the place to be for a frightfully delightful Halloween (and that dance is truly horrifying!):

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Just the sort of information you need for Halloween on Martha's Vineyard:

This used to happen for Halloween in Lake Coeur d'Alene (although I couldn't find any recent mention of this contest):

Brrrr! Not my idea of a fun Halloween activity, but it certainly is different!

Happy Halloween, everyone!

Aw, c'mon, Coop, my geriatric Appaloosa is now what is known as a "pasture ornament", and I'm sure we could find one for the Blog Cabin (although I doubt if the winner would be interested in caring for a retired horse, so probably not a good idea!). Anyway, the state insect of Idaho is the monarch butterfly, and there are all sorts of interesting creations based on this little lepidopteran.

These silly things used to be popular years ago but I couldn't find a current source:

So how about a few of these fluttering about the Blog Cabin entrance:

Maybe the Blog Cabin crew would like to get crafty and make one of these for the front door:

Also, why not go all out and welcome the winner to their new cabin with these:

And once the effects of the wine hit, the winner would be greeted by this:

Okay, okay, maybe that's a little too much monarch madness, but I'm thinking monarch butterflies could easily become the pink flamingoes of Idaho!

Oooh, that Limoncello cake with huckleberry sorbet on the TripAdvisor site is calling my name (it's lunchtime here). Dockside Restaurant will definitely be a destination should I find myself in Couer d"Alene!

I hate to be nitpicky, Virginia, but Rocky Mountain States was not one of the multiple choice options for location preference. No matter, I love that area -- so beautiful, and I adore cold dry weather!
