Hello Roadtrippers! I'm planning to drive myself and my JRT (Jack Russell Terrier) from my home in Portland through the Spokane area, Northern Idaho to Northwestern Montana in early October. I'm a senior on a budget, subscribe to Tom's Theory of Motels, and appreciate really good cooking. What are the non-touristy, wonderful, little places to stop along the way? I have no special needs other than I really dislike chains of all kinds.
Thanks for the help.
