I believe it was in the city of Sweetgrass, Montana.

By the way, I'll get work on moving these threads to the child board shortly. :wink:

Exactly, Sweetgrass is just a typical rural town with all Bernie wrote plus a railroad track. On the Canadian side, Coutts is built right on the border. So, the convenience store is next to the customs. It is that far from Lethbridge, but you're in the middle of the cowboy country and you'll Prairies for a while. So, Josh, you'll love that area.

By the way, in the past, Greyhound Canada and Rimrock Stages used to have a line connection there to link Alberta and southwestern cities via Salt Lake City, but Rimrock discontinued its service in the last year. It was the only international port used to regular bus lines between Winnipeg (Emerson,MB/Pembina,ND on I-29) and Vancouver (Surrey,BC/Blaine,WA on the I-5).
