    I applied for a job in Hamilton, MT. Pretty deep in the BitterRoot range, and pretty close to some Interior B.C. terrain that is pretty freeeeeking awesome. Any splitters out in this area?

    i did a bit of splitting around there a few years ago… definitely some big mountains with very, very few people around…

    Big remote mountains over there! Haven’t done any splitting, but just got back last week from a deer hunt on the Idaho side of the divide. Lots and lots of country. Wish I would have had my board as there’s already 20 inches of snow up high. Hope it works out for you!

    The Bitterroot is an absolute sea of big peaks and seldom-traveled land.

    Do it! So I can come visit. Wouldnt the lady be more sane in Missoula? Though thats a bit of a commute.

    May have to buy a snowmobile too, hippy. Probably some big approaches around there.

    BushDoctor…. I’d move to the San Juans but the combination of Bonez steez, and my lust for good smoke would leave the entire San Juans bearing Yeti’s and no cheech left :thatrocks: Not too mention with 2 outstanding breweries in Durango… I’d be a drunken fool… wait…I don’t need to move anywhere for that classification. :nononno: Bring on the mega IBU % IPA’s :guinness:

    I’m going to ping you about them Mercury spots… I think they look’d at my resume and thought…tooooo much money. :thumpsup:

    Thanks for the info on Hamilton, MT… it looks pretty sweet. It’s a govy job, so we’ll see. I was up skinning around the MT, ID border last year… the ID Selkirks are pretty sweeeeet!

    I know HFT would show up… that guy has some big juevos, and loves big lines that will make most peeps shit themselves…. I think I actually sharted a bit on my 1st adventure in the Needles with that freekin nut job.

    Born and raised in Missoula. Worked in a lab at the Rocky Mountain Labs in Hamilton for a year. You’ll love it there. Approaches will be long, but you won’t see anyone. A snowmobile is a great idea. I actually grew up snowmobiling more and there’s tons of terrain for that.
    You will be surprised how many good microbrews are in MT. I believe MT has the most breweries per capita out of all the states.
    Learn to flyfish if you don’t know how. And raft.
    The list goes on…

    Enjoy!
