i wish I could say I enjoyed driving through Montana. Went to Yellowstone on a cross country drive. Left the hotel early in the morning. Saw no hotels before nightfall, got stuck driving through some winding mountain roads that had no lights. Hardly any traffic and no trucks. The other cars that were there were driving too fast for me to tag along. Then came the rain, fog, sleet, and snow. We really were scared for our lives. Finally, one truck came by that we were able to follow in the dark. When they stopped at a gas station, we followed and thanked the two people in it.

Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual."

We are currently tourist in Jackson Wy, my wife just loves this place even mentioned retire out this way. Once I showed her how high the snow would be in winter she reconsidered. I do love the western spirit folks have out in this part of the country. I heard a local address a large group of tourist asking them all where they came from, one group said california without missing a beat he said "Welcome to America" the whole crowd burst into laughter.

Go to a restaurant outside Zion and all you see are CA, AZ and NV license plates.


I’ve lived in UT since 1988, never been to Zion, Bryce, or Arches. When asked why, I say it’s because I’d just go to California if I want to be with those crowds. Besides, if I’m going down there, I’m heading straight to Powell. Smile

As for MT, back when I was still trucking, I never had a bad day when I was trucking in MT. Sure, I had hard days, but no bad days. Western MT is beautiful.

………and we continue to fill up with tourists. Some music festival is 10 miles away and is to attract 10,000 people. Our roads aren’t made for that. We’ve seem at least 8 traffic deaths in the last few weeks, including 2 today. Too much speed & booze.

Tonight, we drove highway 35 home after watching a play in Polson at about 10:30. We make this drive a number of times in a summer. Usually we see 10 cars going south on the east side of the lake. Tonight I would guess we saw 300 headed south while we headed north. This is a narrow 2 lane with lots of curves and minimal passing areas. The speed limit is 50. A couple of cars passed us going at least 80 in double yellow zones. About 10% of oncoming drivers wouldn’t dim their lights. Insanity.

Com’on fall.

Yep, I was part of the problem over the 4th of July in the Flathead.
Third trip of the year to the valley, and one day I hope not to leave.

Fall is the best time of the year to be in the Flathead. When the leaves start to change color, best post card around. With a little dusting on top of the Bob.

Hope to be back the end of the month.

You sound like the kind of tourist the OP is talking about. Isn't Montana's fault you didn't plan your trip. To include distance between motels and the year round possibility of inclement weather.

You know that those of us in the rest of the state don't consider Jackson a part of Wyoming, don't you?

No, its people trying to look like men who wear them. Do you own flip flops? Have you ever been seen in public wearing them? Those should be the first two questions on the man card application.

I didn't get to do any of the things the OP was talking about since I drove through Montana in the dark. That was my first cross country drive and, no, we didn't plan stops. That was the intent of our trip. Do you always start out perfect the first time you do something?

The second cross-country trip, we did decide no driving in the dark or in the SUV at gas stations like we did the first time. I used Waze to plan fill ups at Loves and I used the Best Western app to confirm reservations before we got there.

The "west" is NOT the West! Hasn't been since the 1870's. Read "Tough Trip Through Paradise" by A. Garcia, it may give you a little perspective.

On the inside looking out, but not to the west, it's the PRK and its minions!
