Arrow WVO along route: SF Bay Area to Montana, Alberta, and back

Hey Everyone,
I'll be traveling with my vegistroke'd E-350 van around June 19th north-east from the Lake Tahoe area via Idaho/Yellowstone National Park to Billings Montana,
a week later around June 27th via Glacier National Park to Banff / Jasper in Canada,
and around the 4th of July weekend through Eastern WA and ID/OR back south to the SF Bay area.

I'd love to meet and put some faces to the names here of fellow WVO'ers and would appreciate any help with finding filtered and dewatered WVO along the way.
My VegiStroke tank has about 40gals and I can probably fill another 50 gals or so in cubies in the trunk.

Thanks so much guys, here is the link to the route I'm taking, happy to make reasonable scenic detours for quality oil

Perhaps I manage to stop by BFT headquarters and say hi to the man who makes this all possible!
I updated the misplaced pins on the BFT forum members Trip Map and hope to see some of you along the way.
Cheers!

I'm two hours east of Billings and should have some extra oil.

I'm fairly out of the way - 40 minutes west of Portland, OR - but if you want to make a side trip, let me know and I can have oil for you.

Thanks N2GN2, four hours round trip probably defeats the purpose a little, but if we run out of options I'll get in touch with you.

And Thanks also to UW Mitch: as of now the route is planned through ID and Eastern OR, but if that changes for some reason I'd be stoked to meet you.
I will certainly do coastal OR trips in future so I'll contact you then if I may.

Does someone have an idea for sources in the Calgary / Banff / Jasper area ?

I believed you have talked to Matt but I will be in Billings from June 28th toJuly8th. I will be getting some oil from him also. Sara's as we have planned he is going to bring some oil up and drop the barrels off at my father in laws co-op and we can both pick it up there. Only 20miles east of billings.

Yup, Matt is coming through Billings on June 21st, which is perfect as that's the weekend I'll be there, PERFECT timing!
Too bad I'll miss you this time, but I'll be coming up your way (you're in Everett WA right?) sooner or later again as well, great to be in touch.

Any ideas for the Calgary / Jasper / Revelstoke area?
