Tuesday June 28 Advance Group Report

Today Woody  and Carole (Mrs Woody) drove from Grangeville, ID to Polson, MT by way of Hwy 12.  Hwy 12 follows the Clearwater, & Chochsa River up to LoLo Pass in Idaho. The Rivers are very high with a much larger volume of water than most years.

They met with another Jeep Expeditions member (Elkpkr) & Joyce  at their summer home in Flat Head Lake.  They have a great spot that looks out onto a private cove where Dick keeps his boat. Dick bbq'd a Montana Steak for Carole & I and we talked for a few hrs about life & kids and our trip.

Carole and Woody then drove to Columbia Falls, MT where they are staying tonight and tomorrow night to give them a full day  to visit Glacier NP before  crossing over into Canada on Thursday June 30th.

Woody reported that his Jeep is getting a solid 14mpg due to his packing lighter than he usually does.

Hey it's a Jeep, there's more to life than mpg !
