Finished School and a Bike Trip

May 21st 2009 — School — 8:46 am

In the last week I have

1) Finished school (M.S. in Statistics from Montana State University)
2) Biked from Bozeman to Missoula (330 miles)
3) Packed my stuff up and moved to Missoula

It has been a big week, and with the Sasquatch Music Festival this weekend the action continues.

Thanks to everyone that helped me get through the last three years. It is crazy to me how fast time passes. Days go by like hours used to when I was little.

The bike trip was epic. I will put up more pictures later. Now I have some unpacking to do.


Biking Video

Here is a short video I took when when were riding our bikes in Canyonlands. I believe those are the La Salle Mountains. The video messes up at the end when I had to stop myself from eating it.

Montana State Hospital 1897

May 6th 2009 — Montana — 9:13 pm

Right about about mile marker 210 on I-90 between Missoula and Bozeman you pass the exit for Warm Springs and the Montana State Hospital. I have looked at this place countless times and until a few weeks ago had never actually stopped. It is a psychiatric hospital.

The whole place definitely has a bit of an odd feel to it. From the interstate you can see that most of the trees in the area were drastically trimmed a number of years ago, and the result is row of big trees lining the road with giant trunks and little wispy branches coming out of them. We were stopped by a couple of security guards making sure we didn’t take pictures of any of the patients.

I don’t mean to disparage people who work in the mental health industry. The whole place just looked like it needed some more money to steer it off the path of being the location for the next Friday the 13th movie.

They publicize their admissions data, which tells where they receive patients from, both geographically and from what type of care facility.
