ah ok no worries- yeah then 400hp in a few-ton SUV with 4WD feels about right. it's got juice, but it's also got weight.

you're right though, it's a good truck. not mad that they offered this at the same price. i will be a bit cramped if i have to sleep in it, but damn it feels capable.

All right sleeve, I've gotta give it up. Montana is fucking beautiful.

I'm sitting at Metals in Butte trying your local IPAs with the Irish nachos for lunch.

If I found one of those tech jobs that let me work 100% remote, I'd live here.

I have family from a small city in Montana called Wyoming (joke). It too is darn near as beautiful as Montana. I spent many months of my youth up in Cody and all around north western Wyoming. Would move there in an instant too.

I might try to find a route through WY on the way back. I'm taking the 15 out as a symbolic gesture; it's the veterans memorial freeway.

I hadn't at the time. Got through the rest and am in Miles City for the night. On-site tomorrow. God damn that was a lot of driving.

Minor adventures so far: I decided to get water from a couple of rivers on the way as a gift for the elders.

For Snake River, had to hop a fence and scale a small cliff. It started snowing on the climb back up.

For Beaverhead River, fence was only waist-height so no problem, but the river was mostly frozen. I didn't want to fall through so I low-crawled to the edge of the ice.

Good times!

Nah, I'm in Miles City now, not Butte- I think about an hour from the eastern border. About 4 more hours to Bismarck.

Yes, it fucking is. I've been up in the Great Falls area twice (didn't get to make it to Glacier National Park, and I'm with you, if I could work 100% remote, I would very seriously consider moving there.

Although I don't know if my Oklahoma bones could handle the winters there.

The job I just took I'll be able to work from home 40-50% of the time.

You drove past me, I'm a few miles off Interstate 15 about 100 miles into Idaho.

And, yeah, the winters in this region are something else entirely. Windchill is -15F right now and I'm off to do chores. But yes, this region is beautiful.
