Hamilton, MT

Its been a few days. I haven't really had internet or phone service for that matter. Montana is everything I thought it would be. AWESOME. And huge. And rugged. But mostly AWESOME. Tomorrow I have a short ride (45 miles) into super hip and cool Missoula. While in Missoula I'll be stopping by the Adventure Cycling Headquarters to get my picture taken and posted up on their wall of TransAm riders, where I will be gawked and laughed at for years to come. There's supposedly a pretty nice hostel there too so the forecast looks good for sleeping in a bed. Here are some pics from the last few days:

The exact moment when I figured out how to work the timer on my camera.

This converted bus is a Mexican restaurant I'd been hearing about. Its in Dillon, MT. EXCELLENT food. Legit, cheap, home cookin' style Mexican. Just a guy and his wife doing the cooking and taking orders. Opens early and stays open late. I was so happy to eat here. Finding good AND cheap food along the TransAm is not always easy. 

The people sitting down on the left kept trying to communicate with the people behind the counter in spanish  even though they clearly had no grasp of the spanish language WHATSOEVER. The people behind the counter also clearly spoke english because they kept speaking to everyone in ENGLISH!! Most annoying thing EVER. We're on a tiny bus. Order your food like a normal person and get out of the way. You didn't know how to speak spanish before you got here, you're not going to spontaneously start speaking it now. Idiots.

Woke up in the morning with a pretty solid frosting on my tent.
