3/17/06 – Clare and I just returned from a quick visit to Missoula, Montana. Clare has been accepted to the University of Montana and we cashed in some frequent flyer miles to check it out. We spent one day touring the campus and discussing Clare’s upcoming journey of the mind. We spent the next day touring Snowbowl Ski Area on Big Sky Mountain by snowboard and shredding the gnarly terrain. If Clare doesn’t decide to attend the U of MT, I might! (joke) Missoula is a nice little city with more than 3 million acres of wilderness within a hundred mile radius. We found the people of Missoula to be uniformly friendly and helpful. – Bill
