Just found your RR. Great stuff. I came through that area
decades ago as a 5th grader. Wintertime on secondary roads
in a Nash Rambler. Somewhere on that journey we came
around a corner and saw a completely snowed in valley with
an active smokestack sticking out of the snow! No more than
a hundred yards off the road, and I'm talking undisturbed, at
least 12' snowpack(not drifts). Your report makes me want to
try and find that spot.
Thanks.

While I was riding through there I kept wondering what it would be like in the winter. Especially when I saw some of the more remote cabins and homes. I will definately be back next year, with more time and a new set of tools.

Hmmm,

"I really do think when you travel alone,
that it not only allows you to open up to others
but it makes it easier for others to approach you.
To make sure you are OK.
To be kind to others, to be helpful, what a concept.
Maybe a lost art in some places.
Not in the back hills of Montana and Idaho.
I know this to be true."


Kind of puts a little faith back in HUMANITY doesn't it?
My riding buddy, Lionsroaar, and I discovered the same thing on our Western TAT ride early September but the further west we got the more we noticed that kindness was gone again. Sad

Enjoyed your RR, sorry it's was cut short.

Now is the time to start planning. I will read a whole bunch about Montana/Idaho history and the Nez Perce etc. this winter while I am at it.

Fantastic report, Red.
My buddy and I and our teenage boys spent five days this summer camping out on our quads in the Magruder and Buffalo Hump. Mark at the Hell's Half Acre fire lookout was a great host for our couple hour visit. Fishing was great. A soak at Red River Hot Springs was just what the Dr. ordered after days on the trail. The ride into Concord and beyond to Jumbo Mine was just plain wicked rough, and yet there at Concord is a Deuce and a half with cabin-building supplies! Lots yet to explore. Your report brings so much of it back. Sorry to hear about the lost tools.
Cheers,
IDRIDR
