7-18-12, West of Lolo, MT - This was a short but very nice day. The lads and I decided to take a half day off and hole up, 6 miles up Lolo Creek when offered a place on a nice piece of private property.
After hitching this morning, I faced a rather difficult one mile section of US-93 that had narrow shoulders and tight curves. Not to worry, the Montana Transportation department was kind enough to use one of their truck with the lights on to throw a traffic block behind me - thank you.
On the way into the town of Lolo, I stopped at least 4 times to chat with people. Once I reached town, I pulled into a gas station where many people came over to chat and meet the team.
