Rain Rain and more Rain

Bright lights all night. Used buff as a blindfold. But warm and dry. Left southbound to Choteau, the three guys headed North to Dupuyer. Rained the whole way. Still interesting to pass the Huderite colonies, Vegetables for sale, a custom feed lot, baled hay laying in the fields. Just good ol' Montana Teton Valley countryside. No stops though till Choteau. Ate lunch at a dinner and made a cardboard sign for East Glacier. It took a while, but I did get a ride. A couple young construction workers in a big crew cab pickup headed to Kalispell to buy a snowmobile. Good country music the whole way.

Drove back to Heart Butte to do the 10 miles that were closed by the fire. Stood in the rain for an hour. No one going out, everyone coming in. The volunteer at the fire station was so curious, she stood out in the rain asking the questions. I finally came up with a better plan. I drove to Dupuyer and arranged a deal with the guys. They will drop me off and trade keys as they head north for both spots. I will take them into Glacier when they get their daily mileage done and bring them back out to finish tomorrow. It's supposed to rain for two more days. I'm sitting it out at Buffalo Joes. Really good petite sirloin. Not crazy about soccer, but who's picky? It's warm in here and there are chairs and food!
