Doug

Small town America is the ideal place to celebrate July 4th.  Ennis, Montana, population 838 and a fly fishing haven, does it up right.  A rodeo kicks things off the evening of July 3, firefighters sponsor a pancake breakfast the morning of July 4th, followed by a parade, classic car show and BBQ in the City Park.  After filling up on pancakes, scrambled eggs and sausage, Jeff and Karen made their way to the parade on their bicycles and were enjoying the action when they were approached by Doug, who makes it a tradition to visit family in nearby Alder the week of July 4th.  He was attracted by Buddy hitching a ride in a basket on Karen's bike.  Doug is an environmental engineer working for a chemical company in Houston, Texas.  For two cross country nomads enjoying a patriotic holiday in Ennis, Doug provided the connection that made Jeff and Karen feel right at home.
