I haven't spent much time in Montana, but I have visited there many times. It seems to me to be a lot like Oregon. Beautiful, wild - an adventurers paradise. Having flown around Oregon, and visited many airfields, I have observed one constant. There seems to be many forgotten, possibly abandoned, small airplanes at all the little out-of-the-way airfields. Some are trash, some need TLC to get back in the air. Perhaps you could look around and pick up one of those in Montana. Planes on the order of Cubs and Champs seem to abound, and some can be had for just a few thousand bucks. Take a look at Trade-A-Plane, Barnstormers, or Controller. There are many airworthy examples, and asking prices run the gamut. Aviation is expensive, but many others on a tight budget have found a way. Good Luck!
