Just booked room 12 at the Mountain Spirit Inn. Most crawling distance friendly room in all of Darby.

I did go last year, but this year will be a last minute thing.

Alvord in May, 2.5 weeks in early June, and WetFest in September - we'll have to see what vacation and $$ looks like.

Version 2.1 in the works, looking to modify the route a bit and get something going on it with more alternates and a a few different routes, the Gravellys is a must that will be in there. Might be a little Idaho in this one as well.....stay tuned on this.

Re: the Gravelly section, we missed it last year because of the threat of rain. Our alternate route which had great camping at the Ruby Dam outside of Alder, wasn't a bad route, it just wasn't the Gravelly's. I'll definitely stay tuned. Can't wait.

I was at the event in Darby last year. Can anyone tell me if I had a good time?

Probably can't make it this year. If plans don't fall through I'll be riding with a friend and his lady up to Alaska and on to Innuit during July. Upon returning to the states, I'm supposed to meet a dear lady friend and she and I hope to ride a goodly amount of the perimeter of the lower 48. that's gonna be a lotta miles and a lengthy period of time.
