A and I are in MT. We found a place to tent that is breathtaking--right on Hyalite lake. I'll show you pictures. We took G, our dog, on an 11 mile hike up this mountain that still has its top in tact (you should donate $ for M's b-day). We've eaten at our old haunts and rocked karaoke with B. I warmed it up with Modern English's Melt with You and brought it home with something the cowboys didn't understand, The Killers' Mr. Brightside (remember, my indie rock choices are limited in karaoke MT.) We got out of there before my last turn came up--Dolly Parton's Hard Candy Christmas. That one might have been painful.
Today, we float the mouth of the Missouri, which is much smaller up here than where you are. And tomorrow: another hike somewhere. Then back to the plains/cornfields.
For those of you that submitted mannies to #8, I read many of the 2nd rounders in the most beautiful spot in North America, in front of a fire as the night fell. This may have helped you into the next round.
