There’s nothing like a good hotel motel

    My sister’s best friends parents once owned this hotel and it was/is on the historical register. As a freshman in highschool my sister’s friend opened a ice cream shop in the lobby. And when we moved, our dog Tippy jumped out of the pick up and was waiting for my sister to come after school (Tippy had never been to the hotel before)

  2. Karen Too says:

    Talk about a small world! Whatever happened to Tippy?

  3. Glenda says:

    Tippy is now longer with us (that was some time ago), and yes I’m back in Montana after living in Wyoming for 12 years. He’ll be passing by my way in about 2 weeks i surmise

      Glenda when Matt gets to where you are plese take care of him. Shower, laundry, nice soft bed for the night , homecooked meal. Tell him about all the people who are praying for him to have a safe journey. Thanks. I love Montana, could sit and stare at the mountains all day. It is trully awesome.

      • Karen Too says:

        Thanks for the update, Glenda.

        Lucky you in that Matt will soon be passing your way, and that you live in such a stunning part of the country (though Wyoming is gorgeous, too).

        In case you didn’t see his e-mail address on the blog, you can write him at:

          Glenda, I’m glad Matt has you to count on during this part of his journey. With such great distances between the towns it seems like it will be the most difficult part of it.

  4. Jeff says:

    send him a email. buy him lunch.

    Matt….can you check in……can you check out………

      HEHE! That’s isn’t the tune that I thought it was. Mine was from Rapper Delight in the late 70s.

  6. Candice in Alabama says:

    Dogs in Montana Hotel/Motels, Cats in Nevada Hotel/Motels. (my experience!)

    • Don in Tennessee says:

      Candice in Alabama

      Are you referring to a cathouse or otherwise in Neveda. I think Neveda has both. MEOW! BAF!

  7. Charlie says:

    i wonder, how does Matt determine his course? from Glendive to Circle, instead of towards Terry, etc? I know he is ‘wandering’ to an extent, but doesnt this latest direction take him way out of his way towards the end goal?

  8. Stephen says:

    Um, I’d like to reserve the Honeymoon suite on the top floor. I hear it has a great view and has the only windows not boarded up. I checked the Gladstone out on flickr and the whole place has a certain ‘apeel’ to it.

  9. Mike says:

    That is a great picture. I really love old buildings like that one!

  10. Glenda says:

    Charlie – Terry and along the interstate there are more frontage roads and more civilation, not sure why he picked this route other than he gets a lot more scenrey and less homes to walk by. There is also alot of cool montana history that way as well, not that there isn’t history where his walking now. He’s walking between Lewis and Clarks trails – as they explored both the Missouri River and the Yellowstone River Drainages

    • charlie says:

      ah. on the one hand he meets the ‘people of these united states’ and on the other hand he makes it a scenic walk. didn’t know if his intent was one, or the other.

  11. Lisa says:

    Holiday Inn!

  12. JC says:

    This is the most rundown hotel motel I’ve ever seen. No way can that still be open. It looks like it hasn’t been open in 75 years.

  13. Kevin from NC says:

    As long as it’s not the Bates Motel it’s OK

  14. Or a gun not or gone says:

    Welcome to the West!!! Don’t worry, it gets a lot weirder as you keep going.

    Nothing like a good hotel motel, but this isn’t it.
