Talk about inbreeding, I was in Whitefish today and had lunch at a Chinese restaurant. A large family came in straight from church (all dressed up) The whole famdamly looked identical and took over 5 minutes to figure out how to put two tables together. I overheard some of their conversations of the ones who were "with it" enough to engage in some form of conversation. Large foreheads, lots of mouths hanging open and drooling. Extremely pedestrian nonsense conversations, etc. It takes a lot to shock me but I am still astounded by the extreme inbreeding that was obvious in that very large family.

Not trying to start anything. That's why I posted in the "let's visit" thread, and not the I love/hate Montana thread I figured people here might be friendly, not full of trickery.
Bullmoose, it depends on what you call "creature comforts" for one. On the west side we do get cold (again depending on what you're idea of cold is) at times to the tune of -40 but it's generally only for a short time and only a couple of times a season. Normally it hovers around the low 20's to mid 30's. The biggest problem here is it's grey for weeks on end then you'll get a wonderful sunny 20 degree day or two then it's back to grey.

That's one of the many reasons my wife and I moved to "Mayberry Montana" !
The chinese place we ate at is next to where the golf coarse used to be just south of Whiteflesh. They got a new chef or something and I doubt we will ever go back. We also wrote off Bajio, freaking awfull !

I'm told by a guy that used to live in China that the place called "China Wall" which is in the same strip mall as Subway in Aspenfish is in his opinion "the best you're going to find in the flathead". Safeway is opening this week and it'll have a china express in it. If those people follow the recipies it ain't bad for fast food.
As for Piggyback bbq in Aspenfish, what didn't you like?

The brisket was tough as rubber, I should have tried the pork. I'm just way too spoiled from having fantastic BBQ down south. I am also rarely happy with any seafood anywhere except when I'm eating seafood in a coastal area. I lived for 10 years at Salmon Beach in Tacoma where I could catch salmon from my front porch. There isn't a road down to Salmon Beach either, you have to park on top of the bluff and walk down steep goat trails or rickety steep stairs to get to the houses. I could tell some pretty wild stories about that place. I bought two houses down there for 7 k and 11 k. I saw a large house go on the market there recently for 500 k. Who would spring 500 k for a place that has a high risk of being crushed or pushed into the narrows by a landslide ! A landslide hit right next door to my place and I watched as the Madrone trees flew past my window in the light of snapping power lines snapping from the trees coming down the bluff. The next day I had several baseball sized rocks on my roof and on my side deck !

You have Madrone trees? My favorite!
Here a bush qualifies as a towering oak!

Montana does not have any Madrone trees, those are found on the coastal areas of the pacific northwest and all over the Puget Sound area in Washington state. They remind me of giant Mansanita with the red bark and all. The green wood sinks in water it's so dense and wet.
