"I`d really love to see how you routed down from 3 Rivers for my own possible use in the future. Have a great trip!"

BaseCamp/Benchmark Books and Google Earth - Right now I have about a 89 mile route from Three Rivers to Owyhee for gas.

I've posted in the NW forum for some suggestions, but, so far only been told how alone I will be in the desolate know where land.....

So what your saying is you want more punishment. I will be happy to accommodate you. I will start looking at the maps for next Sunday.

Are there good ST options for a feller on a little bike who doesn't want to possibly fall off a cliff? BTDT.
Going to try and make this

hey George, I was behind you guys yesterday going into Sierraville with the family. We did a camping recon in the gold lake area. It's pretty nice up there.

Whose the BMW GS rider. We watched him expertly dodge a 6 PT. buck jumping across the road

I am sworn to secrecy on any BMW questions.

I plan on going the same weekend as the group on the other thread. I am camping with them but should run into you guys. Any of the other "Golden Valley" guys going? I can probably haul a bike if needed.

I officially requested that Friday off from work today. I think I'm riding in with azimuth. Maybe I can donate to have you carry water for me?

Are you going to bring an ice chest full of goodies? Ice for drinks and beer? I'l gladly chip in $$ for stuff that is already there since we will be riding our bikes there. I think the store is a few miles down the road.
If you go up Thursday, you have a really good chance to get a camp site near the group and save a spot for Solemon and I.

I am actually camping with another group close by. But I would be happy to haul your cooler/other stuff up, drop it off at your camp and haul it back Sunday. Solomon/Mark has my # or PM me. I am down by Galena HS but may be able to pick up your stuff. Think I will go up Friday morning.
