78 – Garden of One Thousand Buddhas – Arlee, MT


Do or do not. There is no try. Harley decided to not try to pronounce any of the names involved in this episode.

On this week’s episode, Harley and Amy travel the eight fold path that leads to The Ewam Garden of One Thousand Buddhas in Arlee, Montana.

This oddity surprised us, and may be our favorite so far. It starts with in the mysterious mountains of Tibet and ends up in the beautiful mountains of Montana.

We had a great interview with Deborah Hicks, the Ewam Media and Communications director. On top of handling the communications of the Garden, Deborah is a ten year student of Gochen Tulku Sang-ngag Rinpoche, and an accomplished musician.

We discuss Arlee, MT. If you go, there will not be a shortage of beautiful vistas and nature at it’s finest.

No Episode of the Travel Oddities Podcast would be complete without a place to grab a bite, and we got everything we could of asked for in the Hangin Art Gallery. We also take you through a virtual tour of the National Bison Range in Charlo, Montana.

The Top 5 is packed with the laws of the land.

61 – America’s Stonehenge – Salem, NH


Brett and Harley try not to be crushed by America’s Stonehenge, as they dodge the tolls in their travels to Salem, NH. Salem New Hampshire, also known as the other Salem may hold one of the most mysterious oddities so far. What is this rock formation on the shire? Is it a work of Native art or did it have more sinister uses from early Irish settlers? Perhaps our guest, David Goudsward can shed some light-hearted humor on this and enlighten us on the real story behind one of America’s most mysterious stone structures.

In the news we discuss a Bond like gadget to avoid tolls and the grave consequences of not paying your tolls in Florida. Let’s just say, the death penalty sounds better.

Brett’s Top 5 facts you didn’t know about New Hampshire.

Why it is imperative that you get in “the club” when you are visiting Maddie’s Bagels in Salem. Just ask for Val.
