The Legacy of Mully’s Moguls

Look around Whitefish, and you’re bound to come across the name Muldown. There’s Muldown Elementary. Ed and Mully’s Bar & Restaurant on the mountain. Mully’s Moguls, Mully’s, Upper Mully’s — all runs at Whitefish Mountain Resort. Without even picking up a history book, one knows instantly that Lloyd “Mully” Muldown made an impact here.    Truth be told, Mully is often referred to the “Father of Skiing” for his involvement and enthusiasm in the early days of Whitefish Mountain Resort. To dig deeper into this legend, we turned to Mike Muldown—Mully’s son—to tell us a bit more about his father and the…

A #WhitefishMoment with the Agnews

Moving to Whitefish, Sean and I quickly learned that there were “locals” and there were “tourists.” But unlike many places we’ve visited where tourists are considered outsiders, we love how the Whitefish community embraces the folks who visit and yet still maintain an authentic, western ambiance. Sean and I know all too well that Whitefish has an uncanny ability to permanently capture some visitors with its abundant outdoor activities, friendly locals, and unique character… it captures them — like it captured us — and we end up becoming part of the community. Larry and Connie Agnew fall into that category,…

JUST GO: Meet the Cousers

October 15, 2013

Sean and I are proud to introduce a new series here on Two Sticks and a Board. In sifting through our travels and trying to decide how to best highlight some of the incredible people we’ve met along the way, we decided on a series called JUST GO. In keeping consistent with the mission of Two Sticks and a Board [to inspire a sense of adventure in families of all ages], our goal is to inspire a sense of adventure through the stories of couples in our midst. Through photos and Q&A interviews, we aim to show that adventure is…

Daisy the Weim and the Cone of Pride

When we arrived home from New Zealand/Australia a few weeks ago, we were greeted by a Super Highway of bear activity, right out our front door. It was sort of like being at the zoo—except the house was our cage, and the bears were in the open, roaming as they pleased and picking apples from our apple tree to store up for winter. We would take our ceremonial photos, and then run outside yelling and banging pots to scare them off. After a week, we counted five different bears that had made our property a regular stopping point on their…

Days 6 and 7: Fiesta at Flying J & a new transmission for the TQ

So I realize I’ve been a little vague about how the TQ is performing these days. To be honest? It’s been AWESOME… the tires are hardcore, we haven’t spent a penny on gasoline, and there is enough room for us to comfortably live in the TQ with four people and a dog without wanting to strangle each other. There’s just one thing that’s been underperforming: The transmission. Early on, we noticed that the transmission had a leak. Once we found the balance between filling it back up and overfilling it, we were set… we even had a quick repair in…
