I just finished a 7 day, 1300 mile Ghost Town trip through southwest MT and I saw ONE officer of the law the entire time, and that was a trooper transitting downtown Missoula. We were headed back to Spokane mid-day today when we ran into the closure of I-90 west of Missoula due to 4 fires burning along the highway. The road was shut down clear from St Regis to Missoula, a mountainous area with very few alternative routes At earlier points we ran into civilan cars parked across the frontage road, blocking travel because of the fire. The people manning these roadblocks were completely clueless about what was going on and we ended up back-tracking repeatedly to find a way around the fires. When we finally got there, the traffic was backed up for SEVEN MILES at St Regis because there was an uncontrolled 4 way stop at the interchange. There were additional moron, clueless civilian fire fighters helping to get people off the freeway, but no one thought to direct traffic through the stop signs. Where the heck were the police? We saw not ONE sheriff, deputy, cop or trooper, or even a Salvation Army guy. What's with Montana? Did we see their one highway patrolman in Missoula? Man, I am glad I didn't have an accident, or I would still be lying there beside the road.... John .
