We’ve traveled into the “Missouri Breaks” region of Montana, one of the most sparsely populated areas of the country. We pulled into Circle (pop. 660) at sunset where I put up a campaign flyer in the town gas station/general store. A group of regulars were standing around, all in dusty cowboy boots. I was wearing sandals. “Ya still got your slippers on,” one of them laughingly pointed out… Then in Brockway, Montana, (pop. 20) we met Don Tescher who was here for the annual Brockway Rodeo. Tescher was once ranked 17th in the world at bronco riding. He told me he broke a leg in Houston, Texas, broke an arm in Glendive, Montana… he’s riden 1,300 broncs over 35 years. Note: We were told Brockway had a “free range cow.” That is, a cow here regularly wanders about the town grazing on everybodys’ lawns. Another Note: If you are reading these journal entries and plan to vote for us in 2008, would you please consider putting up a homemade yard sign, get some “average Joe” Schriner for President buttons printed up, and so on — now. It’s never too early, and your action(s) could start a chain reaction. Wouldn’t that be fun.
