RBG's travel blogs are my favorite, so I thought I'd give it a try. I know Missoula isn't as exotic as Helsinki. I was expecting more of a hick town, and was pleasantly surprised by the character here. Lots of very well maintained old brick buildings nestled in the mountains, in the Bitterroot valley. Most of the old buildings have a plaque describing its history and architecture.
The class is Helibase Manager Training. If you're not familiar with the concept of the 'Peter Principal', it implies that you keep promoting and progressing until you reach your level of incompetence. That's why I'm here.
My dorm room is OK, kind of like a hostel. It's $3.95 a night and the classroom is right below me. There are 6 beds in my room. Good people work for USFS
