Hope all is well with you too. Saw a photo of you from the Hell's Canyon gathering at the Tramway sign. I'd love to go to this event, but June is a hard to fit it in month with the other annual June riding event we do.

I'm planning a day ride to replace the flag up on East Mtn Lookout about 12 July. Trailering the TW to Smiths Ferry and leaving from there. If you ain't busy...

Why I can't make it to the Hell's Canyon gathering. Trade 2 wheels for 4 legs time

For some reason after I got the phone app to control it via WiFi it defaulted to 960x720 (can't remember which mode GoPro calls that) and I haven't bothered to switch it back to 1080p. I kind of like the more square aspect for sharing on forums like this.

Sounds good. should get the 4 legged critters out and make them earn some of there money. The gathering was fun and the ride up on Weds was Epic in a not so good way 4-5 hour pouring rain in the high 40's and a 1000lbs bike on mud and clay and dirt. Keeped it upright mostly. But good time. I will give you a call some time in the near future. Take care......

Trinity area opening soon

Quote:
The Boise National Forest will open the Trinity Lakes Road on July 2nd of this year, a full two weeks earlier than its usual July 15 opening date, due to low snowpack. The early opening is extended to all campgrounds, roads and trails in the area, with the exception of the Trinity Mountain Cabin, which won't open until July 15 due to repair work

It wasn't as bad as I expected when I visited in the fall.

You just have to change your perspective. A lot of beauty can be found in a burned forest, lots of wildflowers, green grass, the stark contrast of the black trees with the surroundings, especially with some snow. It benefits the wildlife with all of the reduce brush and trees allowing more usable plants to grow. Trees are really just huge weeds.

Another great report, I always forget that you don't necessarily have to take off way into the backcountry to have a good overnighter. How do you like that camp chair? They seemed pretty pricey, but I read they were pretty stout and they look way more comfortable than a lot of the alternatives.

I think it's great. It's a snap to setup, packs as small as the stool you see there (packed length may be a bit shorter, even) and is pretty comfy. My brother Joel was sold on it when we camped a few weeks ago. Happy to do a show-n-tell anytime.

Thumb Nice camping trip...

Thanks for sharing, my wife wants to do a trip like this with our daughter and this helps me know I can plan our first one right near home.

Just got the ID licensing changed over for the off-highway bikes so we should be out for our first day ride on the 13th. Planing on heading out to the 8th st early morning.

Any recommendations on how early is best? Still learning ID weather, traffic etc.

I was thinking the same thing, nice video to help teach.

The earlier the better for 8th St., watch for foot and bicycle traffic, have fun.

That was fun to watch. I really struggle with the parenting/teaching to ride/not wanting them to get hurt/discouraged and yet wanting them to enjoy all the things I love about riding. Looks like you are doing great.

I haven't known that to be an issue. The little overnight ride with Hunter was actually as busy as I remember seeing it at the parking lot but we still only crossed paths with about six riders. Maybe others have different experiences.
