> There's a great little motel in Lincoln called the Three Bears Motel.
Agreed, stayed there a couple weeks ago.
> They give rides
> to/from Rogers Pass for $10.
Maybe it depends on their mood, but I paid $5 for that same service from them.
> We had Verizon service from Rogers Pass and called for a ride. No bars on
In either direction, a few hours away from Rogers Pass, you also can
get cell phone service. I was going southbound and, at their
suggestion, called them from the top of Green Mountain. I had 4 bars
3G service (VZW) at the top of Green Mountain. Louanne said it's
about 3 hours from there to Rogers Pass, but I knew I'd be slower, so
I asked them to meet me in 4 hours. Kevin said most hikers take
3.5~4.5 hours, so he showed up right about when I showed up.
Although the distances in town are not far, I couldn't believe how
awesome Kevin was - we got to the motel and he knew I wanted some
poweraide, beer, and pizza, so Louanne called in a pizza order for me,
Kevin drove me to the store so I could get drinks and beer, and then
he drove me to the pizza place so I could grab my pizza. Then he
drove me back to the hotel. He even offered to drive me to that Jerky
place (can't recall the name, they have a huge variety and you can
sample everything) at the other end of town.
They are awesome. Plain and simple.
Oh, and they're dog friendly (two of their rooms are pets-allowed, one
$55 and one $60/night). And we all hung out on their swinging chair
and some other guests came by and made a roaring fire.
Very cool people.
Side note, if you don't want to move far while resting their, right
behind the hotel is a dive bar with a great outdoor deck. They have a
couple local (Helena) beers on tap, and make a decent (not great)
burger, and they're relatively inexpensive. And did I mention next
door to 3brs?
