Good ideas! Is there riding if you continue out that road right past Gold Fork? Are there trails, jeep or single track type stuff out that way? I've been interested in exporing out there. Even though an overnighter isn't much time I really want out of town to the max.

Yea I rode half of it back in 08, ... Here's a link http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=362625

I think you will be very hard pushed to make it in 2 days. I think you could do the northern half although long saddle days.

My GPS tracks are on the IAMC site "Route Library"

Now Irode with you once, so I know how fast you can GET I know you can ride the north half in two day, IF: you don't stop to enjoy the scenery, take on the fly photos only, Kickstands up at first light and put tents up by flashlight,... doable

Now just add a full day and it is a wonderful experience. Anyway, my bad read it wrong, (note to self: must not skim over post, also must learn to proof read)

I didn't see you on the 'IN' list for Wetfest, Sam? You just going to stop by for the day, or the whole shebang?

Looks like that will make three of us, with Sasquatch, there to represent IAMC. Good deal I'll finally get to meet ya after all!

Edit: Just noticed- ya stole my sig line, or did I steal yers? Its Okay though, I'm sure Louis wouldn't mind.

So who all is riding up to Cascade Thursday night? I was planning on going up Friday and taking a leisurely pace and smelling the flowers on the way but I hear Sam is heading up a ride Friday morning so I just might leave after work Thursday.

I am planning on just popping in if I can find the place. I didn't opt-in because I wasn't sure I'd be there for sure. I'm Sure Dire will still take money at the door I don't need no stinkin T-shirt.

No, I didn't see your tagline, weird, I read it in a passage awhile back.
