I have been planning a day trip to Montana ever since I moved to Crowsnest Pass a little over a year ago. In the grand scheme of things, I want to visit the continental 49 states, a bucket list item. Hawaii, perhaps, who knows…
Anyway, I figured since I may not be in Alberta much longer, today was a great day for a road trip. Shortly before 9am, I canceled the dogs pack hike, well, actually rescheduled it for tomorrow morning and loaded the dogs into the car and headed for Kalispell, Montana. That was the final destination and Chick-fil-A was the goal.
It was a bit over 2.5 hours to get there, great drive, nice scenery. It looked pretty much like Alberta to tell the truth.
Chick-fil-A was super busy. There were likely 50 people in line ahead of me, the line stretched out the front door. They had all the registers going though and made it through pretty quickly.
The food was as excellent as when I had it for the first time last summer when I was umpiring in Missouri. Good stuff for sure. Some people protest because the owner has strong religious views. I couldn’t care less about his views, the food is amazing.
We stopped at a dog park and the dogs had 20 minutes of fun and then headed home. All in all, I spent about $70 including gas, so not too bad at all.
We left just before 9 and got home after 5:30, so it was a long day of driving. The dogs are tired, so am I. Well, should I move, we will have about 3 days of that, so get used to it pups.
I hope you had a good Labour Day Weekend, or, for any American readers, a good Labor Day Weekend.
