Well, the helicopter dream fell through, so we are on our way to Missoula today. It was drizzly all day and stopped long enough to set up at Lolo Campground. We needed some warm comfort food for lunch so went to Applebee’s.

I had been having some pretty bad knee pain lately so we went to a “Walk-In” bond & joint clinic in Missoula. I had checked with Frank & Linda first and it is a place they have used. After an exam and a couple x-rays, the verdict was Arthritic Knees. I decided on getting a cortisone shot in the left knee. They gave me a CD of the images for whoever will see me in the future.

We later went up the hill to spend the evening with Frank & Linda. We ended up playing a cutthroat game of Mexican Train Dominos. Lots of fun.
