I've ridden the NT to Missoula, but went through Spokane and then used the Trail of the Coeur d'Alenes to get to Missoula, so I can't speak on using MT 200.

I fancy my self to be a culinary snob, and I prefer cooking on my venerable Trangia. The flame front is spot on perfect for cooking and then there is that marvelous simmer ring if you need it. I have not done omelettes as there is that whole eggs not packing well thing, but I am pretty sure I could if I wanted to. I have not done pancakes either but I will try that on my next trip.
Anyways - you have been very helpful - I thought I let you know what bike it is going to be.
Ta da! http://salsacycles.com/bikes/2012_vaya
The brakes will be upgraded, the gearing might be a triple and the tires won´t be that fat.
You have to shave?
Choose the life style that works for you!
That is something that folks often seem to not get. They say that they can't go because of their job or whatever, but don't seem to recognize that their situation is the result of their own choices...I have always considered my "spare time activities" to have a pretty high priority in my career choices. Yes I have had to compromise at times, but I have always valued leisure time activities and at least keep that in mind when making career and financial choices.
In most places bicycles are forbidden to use Interstate and other limited access highways. The only places that allow bicycles on them are where alternative roads either don't exist or are considered so far away they are impractical. When you have to be on an Interstate it's because there is no good alternative.
I rode Calgary to Banff and it's not all that interesting except to see the mountains getting closer.
Make sure she rides this bike on enough long rides before she starts (with her gear) to be sure it'll be comfortable enough. To me, that's a much bigger issue.
