You're further south from me so count on about 18 hours (with normal stops) to get to Missoula. RV park and off you go in the truck. You could fish the rivers/streams within an hours drive and never touch the same water/stream twice over a full week.let's see - I retire in 15.5 months, am selling everything and buying a truck and trailer and following the fish - how long will it take me to hit all 50 sites!!??
jobless in the winter in the OP, then waiting for the fish to show on the GR. Tough on the nerves.Fred - I won't be where I am now!!! Plan on hanging my shingle up at the OP in the winter - then head over to Idaho/Montana in the late spring/ summer - up to the Clearwater/ Grand Ronde in the fall and back to the Klamath in the late fall- unless something else peaks my interest!!!
Montana was my first experience with the word ... Empty. Population just passed through 1 Million. Couple of weeks back, no idea why now, I was checking on some population stat's for comparison purposes. Montana at 1M .... one County, King County, Washington (Seattle, Bellevue, etc) was over THREE MILLION!Montana is full. I hear North Dakota is nice.
Montana had to put a speed limit on all Federal Roads a few years back ... but I don't think anyone pays the slightest attention. Driving in my 'safe speed zone' of 62 - 65 mph (cruise control on:smokin and 18 wheelers would blow by me like I was parked on the side of I-90.Were I so inclined, I think I would also include Wyoming, Colorado & definitely, Idaho. Big ass Diesel truck pulling a super tricked out fifth wheel & a drift boat.
That took me back more than a few years. "Have you been drinking Sir?" 'I have my dogs in the back and there's no way I'm going to put them in jeopardy.' (Me neither!) Rear window rolled down a bit and two huge fuzz-faces sticking out ... ''May I pet your dogs?''to expand...
The $5.00 speeding ticket was for 'daytime' driving (not reckless) after the Feds imposed the 55mph speed limit.
You were also allowed 30 speeding tickets a year before being turned in to the DMV.
The fine was paid to the officer who pulled you over.
Open container was legal so if speeding while enjoying a brewsky always wise to have a $5 bill ready. :smokin:
