Over the weekend, I finally super glued my wife to the couch so we could do some serious discussing about our itinerary for our trip to to Bozeman this summer. The only remaining point of negotiation is if there is enough to do between Missoula and Bozeman to justify staying a 4th night between the two towns. Right now, I am thinking we will do Coeur D'Alene night one, Missoula night 2, then Bozeman. That's where things get hazy...do a 2nd night in Bozeman, or head back to Missoula in the evening after doing the Museum of the Rockies, before hitting CDA again, and then going home.
One plan will have us spending the 4th in Missoula, the other in Coeur D'Alene. Maybe someone, ANYONE(like Kit, my Montana Hero) will swing in and tell me if the 4th of July in Missoula is a good time or not.
In other planning news, after hammering out the big picture stuff, my wife has left alone for the 'finer points'. For the most part.
Last night, she caught me on the computer with about 4 windows open, bouncing around on yelp, the Man vs. Food and Diners, Drive-in's, and Dives websites. She then informed me that my original justification for this road trip was visiting the Museum of the Rockies, not planning my own personal attack on every brew pub and hidden food gem between Richland and Bozeman.
Party Pooper. I think I agreed we wouldn't eat at more than one brew pub a day...
