That's the idea, at least. I'm walking westward from New York City for nine months or so.
If everything goes according to plan, I'll be in Oregon when the clock runs out.
If nothing goes according to plan, maybe I'll end up in Peru or Mongolia or Pennsylvania.
You can read all about the details of my trip
if you're so inclined.
hehehe The Beer Jug!
I told my friend in CA about your journey because her Mom and Sisters live in Glendive, wait till she sees their town made it on the web!
Did you tell them to watch out for Matt and invite him in for a bite? Maybe a place to sleep? Would be nice if they did. Imagine the stories they could tell back to you! That would be awesome.
Hope the Beer Jug gave you a “jug” of something for the next leg of your trip…specially if we wont hear from you for a bit =-(
There’s a brief mention of this bar at the end of this article about Montana, from 7/09:
There’s a blurb about them on here. Maybe it’s the lateness of the hour, but this line from the link below made me laugh: “We have a big marquee in front of the bar with Beer Jug written on it.”
If you had gotten here a day earlier, I could have come down there to say, “hi.” :( but I cant when Im at work. You are truly living free. I envy you. :D
Go chase him Chaser1….tell him we all say hi! hello.
So Chaser 1
Sounds like you might be a regular at Beer Jug. You drink a cold frothy mug of beer and chase it with a shot of Tequila. I’m I right? Hope you were able to meet Matt Hobo Green.
I wish your good luck in your journey :)
Alternate caption: Please don’t shoot the bartender.
Is this a bar and sporting goods store?
Please don’t bar the shoot-tender. There, you are covered
As a former bartender of the Beer Jug, I feel obligated to explain ;)
Glendive is also know at the Paddlefish Capitol of the World. Paddlefish are living dinosaurs, yep, LIVING, in our river. Well, the Beer Jug is the Paddlefish Headquarters. During season you can check who is catching what, and what the mud levels are, etc…and find many fisherman bellied up to the bar. You can buy your fishing license at the Jug and there used to be quite a selection of tackle and gear…hence ‘Sporting Goods’
Im impressed….you’re movin right along….
How about some party ettiquette here.
Kegs are for beer!
It would be crass,
to serve wine in a shot glass.
Or too much of a chug,
to get whiskey in a mug.
Suds go in a stein,
and JUGS should hold moonshine.
Very good Dennis! I like the rhyme.
I guess beer drinking is considered a sport in Montana. There must be penalties for spillage!
And don’t forget their sandwiches. They are the best!
