The following week was spent on the river sleeping in a tent and enjoying time in the boats pictured on the FJ40. All good stuff, even the last day which included 26 miles in a Snow Storm..I'd vote for retiring there and then just spend a few short months each year in a warmer climate.
Lynn & I had a great dinner at the Grand Hotel in Fort Benton just a few months prior to her death.

I've thought about the idea of retiring to Lewistown and then doing the snow-bird thing every winter for a few months. It's really great there from about April through November, although the wind blows a bit more than I prefer. Great hunting. One of the guys I used to ride with moved there a couple of years ago and loves it. Something to think about.
