Last night I packed all my belongings into the back of my Civic and headed over to Mom’s house for my last night in Oregon. Today we got up at 6am and headed out. Yes we, my Mother opted to pay for all my hotels on the way out to Boston, so she’s in on the trip too. We’ve got 5 awesome days of Interstate Highways and Mother-Son bonding.
Our first stop today was in Spokane for lunch at The Onion. LP recommended this place as she has previously lived above them back in her Washington days. I had the onion burger on an onion bun with more onions. It was delicious.
After a short drive through Idaho we we’re finally in Montana. According to Google Maps, Butte Montana looks pretty big, and like it would have some sweet places to eat. It did not. I chose John’s The Original Pork Chop Sandwich Shop. I had the Pork Chop Sandwich. I don’t think I’ll ever be in Butte Montana again.
We then drove another hour to Bozemen, Montana where we found a much more civilized community. Not only do they have an Outback Steakhouse, they’ve also got an Old Chicago Pizza, Perkins, and Famous Dave’s Bar-B-Q! So dinner was a fail, but at least we found a nice place to sleep, the Hampton has free Hot breakfast, starting at 6am!
Tomorrow we take on I94 and Fargo, ND…
