So we left Tacoma and rode to Spokane for our first stop. Always nice to see the family there!! The weather was awesome at the end of July. Our plan was to stay there then make our way towards Stevensville MT. I had planned on camping the day before at a fellow inmates place prior to the ride but then received a PM from @Captain Salmon offering us a nice comfy bed in his guest room! Wuuhooo! Deal!! We left Spokane and headed east along I 90 then to Patty creek rd to Hwy 12 (Lolo pass) then east to Lolo and our comfy place. Was really cool being offered a spot to lay our heads let alone the tour of Missoula we later got from out hosts!! Be sure and stop here along Patty creek close to Hwy 12!! This was actually on the way home. We had passed by here a few times so a stop was in order.
