Greetings from the middle of Montana, driving East on highway 13. Montana is massive. I really should have looked a little closer at the map before deciding to make the drive from Kalispel to Minneapolis in a day. We got on the road at 6:30am, have been driving diligently for 7 hours and we're only half way across the state. There was a stretch on highway 2 where the highway actually turned into a dirt road! And this is a major highway mind you. America is just full of surprises.
If big open country, full of grass lands and free of oil dericks and telephone lines, is your thing, then Montana is your place. I get full of idealistic ideas about patriotism and environmental splendor when I drive through a place like this, nevermind the anti-meth ads painted on broken down vans as you drive through the little towns. Those plains, that's God's country.
