Monday, August 4, 2008 – Missoula, MT

I have several days to catch up on.  The internet connection was abysmally slow in Missoula and then non-existent in Gardiner, MT.  However, I just got the pictures off my camera and find that I have none for August 4th.  So there’s not too much catching up to do.

First a comment on VRBO, Vacation Rentals by Owner.  I booked several of our accommodations through VRBO with the hopes of getting a little more space than the just the usual hotel room.  I’ve had mixed results.  The condo in Eureka was really nice and very clean, the house in Bandon and the one in Missoula were less so.  The condo was rented through a management agency who looks after the property and the others were managed by the owner.  The ones managed by the owners tended to be less clean and were missing vital essentials – like tissues, a hair dryer, or window coverings on all the bedroom windows! Good thing we brought our beach towels along.  Anyway, that’s my word of caution if you are planning on using VRBO for vacation rentals.

We spent the day doing laundry, food shopping, moseying about Missoula, having lunch, going to the Big Sky Brewery makers of Moose Drool, searching for postcards and going down Roller Coaster Road just because it had a good name.  Nothing too exciting so there are no pictures.
