The second person I met was Dylan, Cheryl's husband. He was wearing a Western Carolina shirt and I asked where he got that. He said he was from Asheville. Small world! He had worked at the Admiral and some other places and they wanted to travel and hold jobs where they would see each other. This job they found on the Coolwerks website and they needed a cook and manager. That's how they ended up in Wise River, Montana.
After shower and setting up camp, I came into the bar to eat. The couple there asked me to sit next to them. They passed me on the road and said I looked tired, so they were buying me a drink! They were from the Quad Cities, Iowa and came out here to fish. We talked a while, before they left. They recommended the Ribeye, and at $28 it was more than I normally pay for food-- but when in Montana, right? And it was delicious! One of the best steaks I've ever had.
When it was time to settle up, Cheryl told me that the couple not only bought my drink, but my entire dinner! I hadn't paid for my camping yet, and she tried to give that to me for free but I couldn't get off that easy. Again, the people I meet are so kind, generous and amazing. I came exhausted and hungry and left with new friends.
