[cdt-l] montana/idaho resupply

We resupplied in both Lima and Wisdom. Hitching on the interstate is a
different type of experience, but then so is the CDT. The interstate hitch
took us a bit of time, but the traffic is a lot of tourists (who seem to not
offer rides).
Don't worry about the length of the hitches. There aren't many side roads
for vehicles to take and they travel quite fast compared to walking to town.
The locals along the CDT are amazingly friendly and helpful. The more remote
the location, the more apt they are to give you a ride.
