I just read on the internet that Yamaha is coming back with the XT500/600.

Thanks for the different leads, I will keep looking. I have to stick to my budget or my other option, wait until next spring.

Was out in that area so stopped by to look at it. Under 6k miles, very clean looking, $2995 and if I had the $3k to spend, it wouldn't be on a 26 year old bike. I can be patient and wait until this stupid furlough is over or, may just wait until I find a good winter/spring deal.

Get up there and pick those huckleberries! They are already starting to get mushy at the lower elevations, and there seems to be a bumper crop this year. I got half a baggie-full from one plant yesterday!

St. Joe River Area 8/23-8/26

I have Friday 8/23 (my birthday) through Monday 8/26 off. I'm thinking about loading a bike into the trailer and heading up the Joe to the Huckleberry Campground just past Calder, ID. If anyone is interested in dong some riding down that way that weekend let me know. No solid plans as of yet but I can't imagine a place I would rather spend my 51st birthday than that area.

If I'm really lucky the bar in Calder will have the Seahawks/Packers game on the big (or any size) screen on the 23rd.

Happy birthday! Have a great time. I'd come hang out with you but I'll be out of the area. I'm sure you'll find others that will be willing to spends some time there riding since it's a terrific place to be.

Happy birthday Rick, I hope that your BD is everything that you wish it to be. Sounds like a great way to spend it. Enjoy.

Bees?

I called the little store in Calder and asked how bad the mosquitos are right now. She said the mosquitos are not a problem but the bees are. Has anywhere here been down there in the last few weeks? If so, can you comment on the insect situation?

Also, is there any over-the-air TV reception if you have a decent antenna on the top of an RV? (CBS specifically)

You're going camping and plan to watch TV? Tell me it's not true.

Just got back from four days and three nights camping in the Ione/Metalline Falls area. Beautiful weather. HUGE yellow jacket populations all over up there, so be careful. Sweet Creek falls and the falls up the Elk Creek hiking trail near Mill Pond are both worth looking at.

There is just one thing I want to see on TV Friday evening.
