Montana - Chaps

After a day spent in the splendor of Glacier National Park’s Going to the Sun Road, my friends and I were headed back to town. We stopped near the park’s entrance to gas up the van. As it was filling, we chatted in the van and noticed a pair of guys about our age, decked out in motorcycle gear, who were clearly in the midst of the great American road trip.

Being a trio of gals, we of course watched them through the van windows.

Then we started giggling.

One of the guys was having trouble with his leather chaps and asked his buddy to re-tie them in the back.

We watched this unfold in fascination and hysterical fits of laughter. Two nice, manly gents…trying to tie a neat bow on one another’s pants. It was about this time that the one having the chaps trouble happened to look up and notice us. In my mind, this is how his thoughts (and facial expressions went):

Hey! Girls. Nice!

*waves* Hi ladies…wait, why are they laugh…

Oh crap, this is a super un-dudely position, isn’t it?

You could tell the minute he realized it, because he and his buddy both kind of shoved away from each other like Danny and Kenickie after their hug in Grease. Then, they started chuckling too and we all got a great kick out of it!

This wasn't the only view in Glacier!


  1. Hello, my friend! A great story and I'm sure you all had a great time on your cross country trip. I've never been to Montana, but it sounds glorious! I'm sure the chaps with the chaps will never forget it, too. Best regards to you. Ruby

  2. A view indeed. Glad they could laugh it off.

  3. Cute story. And I thought people only wore chaps in the Wild West!

  4. That is hysterical! Forget it dudes, your manhood lost all points right then.
