It’s a meeting of guests/podcasters/fans mingling ideas and strategies about controversial topics and ancient fables over the course of a long weekend. The Brothers of The Serpent have since joined this tradition, and Ben from UnchartedX. This year we descend into Idaho and western Montana for the second half of the tour of a lifetime. state for 6 nights and 6 days to explore the Northern Idaho mega flood evidence all the way through into Montana and surrounding areas with Randall Carlson and friends . With only 25 spots available this trip is not to be missed.

What To Expect
Sandpoint’s motto is “What a beautiful pace” – and most visitors quickly learn that’s no typo. Not that Sandpoint doesn’t enjoy a beautiful natural setting; in fact, it was named the “most beautiful town in America” by USA Today and Rand McNally. It is nestled between three mountain ranges, on the shores of magnificent Lake Pend Oreille (Idaho’s largest) and at the foot of Schweitzer Mountain ski and board resort (Idaho’s biggest by area, second only to Sun Valley in skier visits). But despite all those superlatives, Sandpoint prides itself as much on “pace” as “place,” with a vibrant arts community, acclaimed culinary and dining scene, overflowing arts and entertainment calendars and an authentic-small-town, not-a-resort vibe. Combined with the wealth of outdoor activities that its lake and mountains provide, visitors can discover just about any pace they might like, in this mighty beautiful place.
Paradise is located along the Clark Fork River. The river provides excellent fishing. The surrounding area offers boating at Flathead Lake State Park and camping in Thompson Falls State Park, or wildlife viewing at the National Bison Range. Take a dip in one of the hot springs located near Paradise or enjoy golfing or museums in the Flathead Lake area.
Quinn's Hot Springs Resort: A Brief History
The resort is named after Martin Quinn, an Irish immigrant and miner. During mining transports along the river in the early 1880’s, he noticed bands of Native Americans gathering near a steamy mountainside outcrop. Upon further exploration, he staked his claim and built the residence, bathhouses and sleeping accommodations that laid foundation for the resort we enjoy today.
This year at our Contact at The Clark – 2022 event we will be offering all meals through Quinn’s resort in Montana, and through the resort in Sandpoint. Lunches will be provided in the field by us. Transportation for all tours is provided as well as to and from the Spokane airport. All park entrance fees included (if required). Each attendee will be sent home with a small gift package to commemorate the event as a token of our appreciation.
