    I'm going to be leaving from Billings about 4 PM on the 31st,heading for the Or. coast
    Planning to drive till 8 or so and need a place to hang for the night, any suggestions? going to hit the road west early, so I don't want to be to far off 90.

    thanks

    You are going Billings to Zoo Town in 4 hours? Say hi to the MHP for me. Hehe.

    I'd suggest heading out to St. Regis. They have campgrounds around there and lots of trees/shade. Also there's a good burger place in St. Regis if you are able to get past Five Guys in Missoula. Hehe.

    I'm sure there will be suggestions from the Griz folks who know the area better than this Bobcat.

    Ok, just checked google maps, so maybe 5 hours

    Don't want to see any blue lights.
    I was over that stretch of road once about a year ago, and after driving from Fairbanks to Portland to Wy I was not paying much attention to times,just wanted to stop driving.

    St. Regis might be a bit farther than I want to drive, I'm going to be leaving Worland Wy at about 4:30 am, and going to be in sales meetings all day in Billings.

    I've been told by MHP buddies that 8 mph over the limit won't get you pulled over. So 83. But the rule may be different if you don't have local plates. (Though Wyoming is local IMHO.)

    I do miss the $5 tickets still!
