I've parked our families gas guzzling Nissan X-Terra in the garage, trading it for a Raleigh mountain bike about 6 months ago. And I'm never going back to my old ways of commuting ever again.
I pedal past the local Conoco and Town Pump and scoff at the $3.60 a gallon gas prices, shaking my head while attempting to avoid breathing in toxic exhaust from large truck tailpipes along the congested roads that I share the road with.
Sure, you may live in Montana, but don't let the small population of our state allow you to think that your talents will never get noticed! According to the Biography Channel, our fantastic state is home to some of the greatest minds of our generation.
The University of Montana has been part of the Missoula community for almost 120 years. Its long history as one of the state’s largest learning institutions is peppered with interesting facts, stories and tidbits. Here are a few UM trivia items to impress your friends with:

Well, it's actually not as illegal than you think. Here's a quick run down on cousin marriage laws in America, and if you can legally hook-up with them in Montana State.
Missoula might not be the largest city in Montana, but we sure have the most to do when it comes to activities for kids. Even on the road to and from Missoula, there are numerous places to stop along the way for the wee ones.
Bar owners, drink servers and entertainers have noticed an alarming trend.
After a modest happy hour or dinner rush, establishments all over Missoula become a near ghost town only until the next wave of party goers arrive as late as 11 p.m. These fashionably late appearances are making their jobs all the more difficult as they have to cram as many sales as they can into a very small time frame, before the dreaded "last call for alcohol."
