This Montana local is getting tired of tourists, especially after last year's COVID-flighters. Please follow our laws and cultural etiquette if you are visiting our state.
1. We are a Joint-responsibility state. If you pull out, step out, fall into the path of anything that moves, it is 49% your fault. Unless you get smacked by wildlife. Then your fault is 100%.
2.Nothing is ever efficiently solved in flip-flops. Montana men don't wear them.
3. Stop means STOP. Don't roll on our signs. Wait your turn. That logging rig takes a long time to slow down for you.
4. We love Trump. So shut up.
5. It may have cattle on it and it may only be a lane-and-a-half but, if it's a state highway, the speed limit is 70. Maybe more. Respect that.
6. If you don't live here in February... Tourist.
7. It only looks this pretty for two weeks. Our other seasons are Winter and Mud. You don't want to move here.
8. That thing is called a sand hopper. It's necessary. Refer to Number 6.
9. You're not special.
10. Your Tesla's not special.
Wish we didn't have to discuss what should be common courtesy, but it is our summer, too.

Should 11. be "stay in CA/OR/WA"?
Welcome to our beautiful state.
First, spend money, then go home.

J/K it's a beautiful state, my Uncle still lives in a tiny town called Bloomfield. These commie cockroaches need to be trained, they are guests

Just wire transfer the money and stay home.
You can download all the pictures you want.
"the meaning of life, is to give life meaning" ✡ I could explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.
I just took a motorcycle ride through downtown MQT and along the lakeshore.
I believe this is the largest group of tourists I have ever seen in town.
Hurry Labor Day!

My favorite thing to do is tell everyone how we do things back home. That always gets the locals going.
Calling Bloomfield "tiny" is very understated. I'm through there several times a year, and I'd still take it over a big city.
I have never, ever seen so many out of state plates in Montana in my life. Washington, Oregon, California, Texas, Arizona, Florida and a few from the other states. Crazy.

This is very timely. I'm in Montana (East Helena) this very moment, visiting friends. A good share of conversation has been Californian-bashing, which I have freely participated in. I'm from CA, but don't worry, I'm not staying.
My friends are actually seriously considering relocating, maybe to someplace like South Dakota. As mcrimm mentioned, the actual roads have gotten crazy with expatriate Left Coasters, in danger of turning the state into the very thing they are trying to escape.
And yes, I left my flip-flops at home.

They need to take their asses to Han’s Island. Han will have a tournament. Each Kalifornian must fight another one to stay. The losers will be subjected to death in the fight, permanent dismemberment, or prison where they will be guinea pigs for new designer drugs or just plain old heroin.
Please go back to your Kalifornia. We don’t want you here.
I don’t want no teenage queen. I just want my M14. If I die in the combat zone, box me and ship me home. Pin my medals upon chest. Tell my mom I done my best.
Should I have a Trump bumper sticker when I escape with Washington plates?
Out of staters should be required to wear flipflops to save .22 ammo when they and a resident are outrunning a bear.
On the inside looking out, but not to the west, it's the PRK and its minions!

Try Alaska. Last I heard, half of the registered cars there are rental cars.

Should be a moratorium: no voting for 5 years after you have moved into a new state. Don't turn the nice, new place into the shithole you just left.
No, don't do that! That would confuse other drivers who see it and probably cause an accident. Better to ask the MT DMV to mail you new plates ahead of time and have them already mounted when you leave WA.
I'm going to try and be ready to retire in another couple of years if I can get my financial affairs in order, and the first thing I'm going to do is get the hell out of Oregon. It was a nice place to live when I first moved here 43 years ago. Not so much anymore now that it's been Cali-fornicated. I was born in Montana and the northwest part of it is on my short list of place to move to when I bail out of here. Hopefully I'd be welcomed back.
I live in the Zion N.P. area, talk about tourists!! Locals carry cigarette lighters to burn the toilet paper left behind every tree and rock. Then there's the graffiti. One thing we don't have this year are hundreds of tour buses, we were overrun before Covid. I heard Yellowstone was the same.
Go to a restaurant outside Zion and all you see are CA, AZ and NV license plates.

Flip flops irritate you?
Lighten up, Francis.

Shouldn't wear cowboy boots at the beach, nor flip flops in Cowboy Country... Taint proper....
