Welcome to Montana. I will be in this state likely longer than any other this trip, and it has this far been both wild and hospitable, as tonight we find ourselves at another scenic lakeside campground. I look forward to many an eventful mile it's foreign and great expanse.
Today we (myself and Rob) left Idaho. The day's trip was along the edge of lake Pend Orielle, a beautiful and clear mountain lake. The surrounding areas such as Sandpoint have been developed into a large community, complete with its own Wal-Mart
Noteworthy tonight is our dinner, comprised of Cheeseburger Helper, ground beef and mashed potatoes. Hardly being chefs, and desperate at that, we combined the three to create a depraved shepherds pie. Being bear country as mentioned, we cannot leave beef grease to sit in a trash can for fear that I may not be around to complete this blog. We left it in, and neither of us feel particularly great.
