On the Road Montana, 2009 is HOME!

Did you see these guys?


I'll let the photos tell the story. Here is the link to the flickr page for the trip.

“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” –Mark Twain

Each summer Talent Search goes "on the road" to visit new places and meet new people. We've made friends in lots of places so far... here we go again in the Summer of 2009

9 Days, powows, canoes, history, tents, bad food and big sky... Interested???
