    Some guy on an RT went by. We waved. He didn’t.<o:p></o:p>
    Coming down off the top was real loose gravel and neither of us had knobs. Sucked. Got behind a cage with Jersey plates. For about a minute.<o:p></o:p>
    [FONT=&quot]After the dust the hardball was good to be on.<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot][​IMG]<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    Stopped to wash the dust out of my eyes.<o:p></o:p>
    [FONT=&quot]Here comes scrminbanshe<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot][​IMG]<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    It’s now about five o’clock. Scrminbanshee is suppose to be in Spokane right about now.<o:p></o:p>
    [FONT=&quot][​IMG]<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    There’s only one thing left to do. The speed ‘limit’ on I-90 in Montana and most of the Idaho Panhandle is 75mph. Plus whatever.<o:p></o:p>
    Scrminbanshee ski’s and wanted to check out Lookout ski at the state line area and get a pic for his Mom.<o:p></o:p>
    [FONT=&quot]That’s him above the sign<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]

    I love that area! Hope to finally get back up there, but this time on my bike. Upper St. Joe great fly fishing. Also Clarks Fork near St. Regis.
