1. hiking
2. fishing
3. immediate solitude (read: undeveloped) around property
4. still within 30-45 min drive to decent size town w/poker
5. least summer humidity possible (relative to all other places in state)
6. <1 hr drive to town with airport service by major carrier (Delta, Alaska, etc...)

Money is little to no object.

Thanks in advance
I like the Madison River area between Three Forks and West Yellowstone. It's very nice around the town of Ennis. Long drive to a poker game though.

I also like the Paradise Valley between Livingston and Gardiner. Closest poker game would be the Cats Paw in Bozeman. The game was going when I was there a month ago, 6 handed.

Along the Clark Fork River west of Missoula is nice too. The Silver Creek Casino in Missoula would be the closest poker game....if it's back up and running.

Re: from ray to zee

hey freestreet. glad to see you are still around. hope you are doing well.

yea lots of great places to be and live in montana. you just have to really go around and find the one that has the things you want. i like the flathead valley as it seems to have the best weather that i like. and the most rivers and lakes and forest close by. and the poker is the best in the state which isnt saying much.

Do you ever play at Derby Lane? Have I asked this before?

Hey, Ray. Yeah, I love the Flathead too. You had already plugged it so I plugged some different areas. I'm up your way at least a few times a year. I'm either coming in on Hwy 2 or up 93. Both are very scenic drives. I always think of Doyle Brunson when I drive up 93 along Flathead Lake. I think his summer home is somewhere around Dayton. I follow him on twitter and a few months ago he said he hasn't been there for awhile and the place is up for sale. I think his wife isn't very mobile these days is the reason why. I also heard through the grapevine that Chip Reese used to have a place at Lakeside. Nice view of the lake from there. I usually stop at Del's Bar at Somers Bay.

Re: from ray to zee

chip had a place as his exwife came from there. doyle bought a place near dayton. but hasnt come up for a few years. todd comes up every year though this time to have his tournament, and hang around for a week or two. he is in town now.
del's is a cool bar to stop at.

Re: from ray to zee

oregon has had some dreadful wildfires that have burned the whole small town down. that is really scary. smoke on the west coast has made for the worst air quality in the world although for a short time.
so its funny in a way as far as poker is concerned, as the virus and fires has forced people to stay home. but since poker is closed it doesnt matter as you cant play anyway in most places.

Re: from ray to zee

the locusts are all still in portland where they get more tv coverage for their antics.
the north coast is cooler and no smoke at this time. and no fires except that one by otis near lincoln city.

Re: from ray to zee

We've had smoky skies in Great Falls for several days. I have two sisters that live 20 miles southwest of Corvallis in Benton County. So far no wildfires in Benton but the smoke has been so thick they've had to stay inside. Trying to call to see if they got any of the forecast rain but so far they won't pick up.

I've seen the crowded bars with no one wearing masks from here to Billings. I'm in the high risk group so won't go in. It's definitely driving the big spike in corona cases in August and September.

One sister says rain expected today in Benton County, Oregon but it's coming with thunder and lightning. Not good.
