Oh good, the inmates want to go to DV and some ARE going!!
Yes, food gets frozen solid for days before I leave home, then into a soft cooler. I make sure to keep things in shade at camp.
South Pass was pretty tough in those conditions and it's been hammered so hard by water that there aren't any of the old landmarks. I found Steele Pass very easy, the ranger has flagged the confusing bits and we are even back onto a section that I have never ridden since the route got re-aligned in the 2005 washout, it's a straight section that obviously had a grader on it at some point.
I have gleaned some new intel about some places I haven't seen, I'll be back in the future.
Thanks for letting me 'tease' you all with my little trip.
