Nope, and we planned it for the best chance of that. Late season. Tony could answer better, but there is a small window between hot temps and snow. We hit it perfectly. I think it rained for 5 mins the whole trip. Did snow though, just a bit remember ?

Thanks for the report so far, but I must ask you to cease all futher reporting on your trip. I must insist on it actually.

Did you see all those beautiful remote areas on your trip? Clean streams full of fish, nice people (the few you met)? Well, we want to keep it that way. So please head on home now and make sure you turn the light off on your way out, thank you?

Tell no one about Idaho.

Pashimeroi / Copper Basin

Frank commented about the Pashimeroi Valley and Copper Basin. I've got to add my comments. This was the best day of riding for me. Every day was fantastic, but this day was the best. Honest to goodness I had tears in my eyes after we passed that mountain with the snow and were headed down into Mackay. It was absolutely positively magnificent. I'm not religious, but I am spiritual and I felt the power of God (whatever you believe that to be) as we were riding the Pashimeroi. When we stopped at the entrance to the pavement I was positively elated.

The campsite in the Copper Basin was my favorite campsite too. A bit of a story to this camp. Evertone else elected to pitch their tents in the open. I opted for a spot under some pines with a stream trickling about 4 feet from my tent. Absolute heaven.

All our days were magnificent, but this one was the topper, at least for me.


If you have the opportunity travel through the Pashimeroi Valley and Copper Basin. You will not be disappointed.

It truly is magnificient here. Spent the best 35 years of my life here. Unfortunatly, the winds of change are coming. So far we have a good conservative congress that keeps those wonderful lands open for use rather than lock them up like the incoming liberal tree huggers want to do.

Idaho has more square miles of public land than any other state open for recreation. And that means all forms of recreation. True multiple use. There are tens of thousands of miles of single track dirtbike capable trails in this state. From easy to double black diamond "someone actually rode this" technical stuff (what I used to love). We have more miles of dirt roads than paved. Something like 3 to 1 actually. Lots of neat old mines and mining/logging towns and ghost towns to explore. Been doing it for 30 years, and the last 20 on motorcycles and my father and I are no where near scratching the surface of places to explore.

Unpaved Roads in ID

'Squatch

As we were flying into Missoula I was amazed looking down at the number of trails and dirt roads. I think we learned there are 40,000 miles of unpaved roads in Idaho. Fantastic.

Kleinschmidt / Hells Canyon Highlights

I've been waiting for Frank to get to our Hells Canyon day.

He will say something about Hells Canyon Roadhouse. It's worth the trip.

You'll need to wait for Frank's report for more.

Stage 5, Sun Valley-missoula

STAGE 5 WILL TAKE US OVER A BIG DISTANCE and 4.5 days. We will ride through the Anderson Ranch area and then the ultra remote Idaho Oywahee Uplands. A road that runs over 100 miles in itself. We then ride a cool trail up to the ghost town of Silver City and come in from the back way so to speak. From there we will take you all north to the Hells Canyon area. We ride the KLIENSCHMIDT GRADE into the canyon. After that we wind our way back to Missoula via Rt.12, one of the best motorcycle roads in the U.S. to
rendezvous with Will, who incedently has fallin off a horse in Montana and has a broken bone in his back !

Leaving Sun Valley and heading towrds the Anderson Ranch Reservoir vis Warm Springs Rd. A thunder shower threatens and even shows itself breifly.



Gobi puts the shower cap on his tankbag


It goes from the mid 80's to the mid 50's in minutes ! Notice the steaming hot springs in the picture.



Again, rivers, creeks and streams everywhere we go




Hard pack sand makes for very nice riding and a chance to just sit back


The Reservour comes into view


This thing is HUGE! See the dirt road winding around the other shore ? We ride it all the way out.




Spongebob hanging in there but filthy !





Here comes DK


The day is getting late and we head for the town of Mountain Home to stay the night before we take on the Oywahee Uplands. No Spongebob gets no bath either, but we do
