The Extraneous Musings of An Outcast

Netscape, The Good Old Days – The Throbber

I sometimes miss those exciting frontier days of NCSA Mosaic and Netscape.

I was on the world wide web starting in the summer of 1993.  The 90’s were fun and heady days on the Internet.  It was pretty wild back then.  Still love the sound of Dial up modems and big boxy computers with even bigger boxy CRT monitors.  Here’s the Netscape throbber for you.

Younger people these days don’t know how good they got it.

My mom and I visited Garnet Ghost Town on October 25th, 2014.  We left home in Helena and drove East on HWY 12 till we got to I-90 East.  We then drove till we got to Drummond and then we took the exit for the I-90 frontage road.  After driving for a while we took the exit for Bear Gulch Road and climbed the mountain until we got to the Garnet Ghost Town (Official Website), lol, not the website, the town silly.  After a day exploring the town, we headed home on Garnet Range Road back to Helena.  We met up with HWY 200 and drove to Lincoln and had dinner there.  Then we took the exit to Lincoln Road and made it home to Helena, Montana.

Garnet Ghost town is located in the Garnet Range Mountains
