I'm up for the lookout. Hunter is a light weight fella, shouldn't be much limitation.

I see a trail off Danskin Road to the South Fork along Trail Creek (Google map) that would be a great shortcut between Danskin Lookout and Trinity. You or anyone know if it's open? It shows clearly in aerial views but it could be gated on private property.

I would like to try the Bear Hole trail too if it doesn't look too gnarly.

The Travel Plan map for the area shows a closure of about 1 mile break in that trail from being able to make that work.

I'm out. Sorry about that. Little daughter has a friend's birthday party I forgot about and just this afternoon she started riding without the training wheels. She's jacked for more bicycle practice tomorrow. I hate to ditch her. It helped that she was sitting on some 50cc motorcycles today and I said she needed to bicycle before she could have a motorcycle.

(Oh, and I rode a new KTM 500 EXC. Man, none of my XRs were like that.)

Anyway, there were other things making it complicated for me. Stupid responsibilities. If you're still available, I could take a day off this week when my wife is back. Then nobody will miss me, we can leave early and I won't have to juggle everything.

No problem, I just got home from work (like you said Stupid responsibilities) and I had some things to do to the bike before I went. I do have Tuesday off???

Rode the Trinity Fire loop yesterday.....Hero dirt! There was a visible dusting of snow on the higher ridges around Atlanta....I wouldn't be surprised to see snow in the Trinity's or even the high point of James Crks this week.

Ride it while you still can!

I went anyway

With the threat of snow in the near future I headed up to Trinity Sunday.

Fall colors




South fork


This is what I found ~4 miles before Trinity Lookout


I ended up coming back around to the reservoir went through featherville and to Rockybar. I was surprised how little fire damaged could be seen from the road. Sorry no pictures

Anderson Ranch reservoir




It was a good day....

Sunday was beautiful, good on ya for getting out and enjoying it. I bet there's white stuff up there now! Wanted to take the TW out for a spin, ended taking my boy fishing instead :) If there is a break in the weather tomorrow I'd like to head out on the TW.

Hey Boise Riders,
Things are moving right along at the Backcountry Pursuit. Just wanted to make a quick post to remind you all there's less than two weeks to my Grand Opening! That means less than two weeks to take advantage of the promo consignment rate which means more money in your pocket. The gear is starting to flow in, and we would love to see some more. I am making adventure and motocross riding a big part of my store. Come bring us some gear and say hi! Questions call the store at 208-429-1124. Sorry for the spam, but a lot of you are my friends and this is important to me and my company to involve you guys. I won't always make spam posts here, but a guy's gotta get started, right? Hope to see you soon!

Hi Boise

Just thought I'd check in and touch base. I have had some queries, not many, but some as to my disposition, since I have dropped out of sight.

Well I took a hiatus into the hills for 10 or so days to do something I've not in about 9 years.... chase wapiti around. I can say this for sure, there a ton more Wolf droppings and track than any other sign I saw. Even the Elk won't bugle like they use to, I think it's a dinner bell sound. I literally saw wolf dropping about every 1/4 mile along old logging roads and trails. Not like it was 10 years ago.

Anyhoo, finally got on to something chased it for what seemed forever only to push it into a local's sights 3 hundred yards off the road. I'm wore out getting too old for running around in the hills might be another 9 years.... or not. Oh he figured someone would push something his way. The guy sat in his truck while we flatlanders pushed them into the field from three different directions Now that's smart hunting! he's from Kooskia said it'll feed his family through the winter.


Here's what I missed out on



I started out in those trees way over there



You know it's too much like work not the way I remember it 15-20 years ago

Well, I have my special tools ordered in and am going to start tearing Moya the 990 apart valves coolant flush etc. Have a great winter you all.

Oh I am in the planning stages for a run to Death Valley or Baja early 2013, if anyone who has free time and interested let me know we can talk over lunch one day.


See you out there

Hi Sam. I'm headed out this weekend to chase deer.

I had thought about heading to Death Valley this winter also.

One of these days I should do a ride report from my Nevada trip.

Death Valley is nice. It looks pretty rough this year from the pics I have seen in recent reports. There are a few maps and books which can make planning a bit easier. I went down there in March about 3 years ago and it was fantastic!

Tell me more about your Nevada trip!

Yes you should! You have all winter, but in the mean time go get that deer.

Mastermarine, I hear end of February March is the best time. I rode through in may when I came back from Hawaii and it was already pretty warm. Did Scotty's and that was it. Always put it on my list of places to explore... just not high on my list, Mexico/Baja excites me more.
