Montana is not a place to live if one needs entertained!

1. 200 miles is "down the road"

2. Missing deer

3. Driving in blizzards.

4. Getting 'stuck'.

5. Not too many people my age. (20-30)

7. excessive natives
I would agree, I am somewhat a "younger" person here. I drove through the state 20 years ago, split the fuel line in my 72 chevelle. The station attendant/mechanic fixed me up and then refused any payment. This was just pass Missoula and I never forgot it. I am sure I had some type of moment that told me I would come back here, life is strange and full of mystery.
Agree with the down the road quote

And dirt roads are awesome. Pick up some beer, drive 15 mph. Noone to bother you. You can then go spotlighting, climb hills, makeout. Many things to do in MT! (Havent really done it since HS).

The glam of eastern Montana, specifically the Hiline.

Dirt roads in the dry season... I mean real dirt, no gravel... where the driving is smooth as glass and utterly silent, and even if you're going slow it takes an hour for the dust to settle in the quiet behind you. Wave at the fellow on the corner by the granary, stop for a drink and a sandwich at the top of the pass. Watch the clouds go by for an hour, then drive home into a big red sunset. This is exactly the kind of nothing that is the most fun to do!!

Or at least born and raised in farm country, so they know what the ag-oriented lifestyle is really all about.

Can't argue with the other two points, tho

Ahhh.. dirt roads during the summer... Almost as good as flying on a day when the air is like glass. As one of my friends puts it.. "It's like sex without the mess."

Thinking specifically of the dirt road from Maudlow over to Wilsall or wherever it comes out... one of the best drives I ever gave myself!

Except for the part where I was sitting on a rock eating lunch, and a cloud of deerflies came over the horizon... had to hide in the truck for the duration!

The thing I hate the most about MONTANA is...

1. That I don't yet live there.


Someday soon.
