Missoula, Montana!

Date: 6/18/06
Mileage: 60

(AndyK, Jesse, Pattt, Adam, PhillyK)

Team AFC...
with the addition of AndyK team AFC is now 5 hearts not 4...
too bad we already made all those T-Shirts..

After leaving Powell's camping grounds we went straight up the Lolo Pass. It was not very hard at all. The grade never went about 6% and it only lasted maybe 5 or so miles. We took it nice and easy up the mountain. The rest of the day was almost all down hill all the way to Missoula.

While we were climbing up the pass AFCMobile (PhillyK and AndyK) went out ahead of us. They had their own adventure! When we met them for lunch they told us that a deer ran out of the woods and crashed head first into the driver's side while they were driving down the highway. AndyK, who was driving, looked pretty shook up. The deer left some hair and blood marks on the car. Luckily they saw the deer run away so hopefully it was not too badly hurt.

(AndyK upset by his encounter with a crazy deer!)

After lunch Jesse got his tools out and fixed up the car. The driver's side door was all busted up and the mirror was bent out of shape. Since Jesse can do anything he had it all fixed up in no time! Looks almost like brand new ... ... ...

We met Ellen Brown in Missoula and she had a cookout for us! After that we headed out to downtown to see what the city was like. Like all the other cities we have visited so far there were bikes and bikers everywhere! Seems like all these small town cities in the West really cater to bikers. I love it!

Great job on your news page, guys. The first thing I do in the mornings is check out your adventures. I have a suggestion - you need to keep us updated on the website of how the donations are going. -a current total. I got Adam's e-mail but not everyone who reads this is on your list. We're all excited to see how much your hard work is reaping. I love you guys. God Bless you all. Be safe, stay warm, and take care of my Baby. Love Mom (in Hughesville)

The Army must suffer every morning until I read my daily blog concerning the trip. I now have about 10 people in the office and other places also reading your blog in the AM. Keep up the good work!

Eww the picture of the deer hair really creeped me out... sick. Hairphobia.

One time Janine and I hit a deer. She thought it was a person. And there was green stuff all over the side of the car from it. We don't know what that was...

Anyway... glad the car and the K's especially were ok! Stay safe boys :)

Yo yo yo

Sounds like everything is going great. I gotta agree with Mom, you all should post more about the fundraising and the amount of awareness you are raising for ADA and Kupenda.

Other than that, the website looks great. Keep of the good work. We miss you all.

Oh yeah, and as I am typing this Dee Dee just discovered that there was a light in the hall (in our apartment)...really...like just right now.. She had no idea where the light was coming from...really, no idea...
