Spud looks good. I drove through Roswell today. Spud must be shy, I didn't see it.

The two story white house on the south side of Hwy 18 next to the old school. Lots of trees. Spud and bike were in the backdoor drive. Might have been hidden behind my lovey wife's Hummer. Can't miss it.

Thanks for the well wishing, Jake. I'll be pitching the Idaho Bedroll to some suits in Boise soon.




About ¼ mile past this posting, given the grade, my high first gear and street rubber, I “Y”turned around and with a bit of tire and clutch slippage climbed back out.




Mackay Bar is down there on the Salmon River about five miles and 3000' lower than where I turned back. That's the Cove creek dranage about 1000' above the Salmon.



Tripod? We don't need no tripod.

On the run back to camp the .243 and camera are stowed to give the road full attention. Undulating through warm light and cool shadow following the mountains dry southern to green northern exposures the super-trap coughed chugs at the switchbacks and droned along between. Shoving the wide bars at the steep turns then pulling them back with the throttle, over and over. It was relaxing, like driving a boat. I even got into second gear a few times. Fun ride.










Back at camp I spun spud around and popped her open. M+B for dinner.







I had ridden along the Gospel Hump Wilderness and then the Frank Church River of No Return Wilderness. Took a nap till dusk then walked down through the woods to creek side of a meadow. Sat on a stump with my New England Arms Handy Rifle across my lap and binoculars dangling. I are a hunter. A light wind came up on the back of my neck carrying my man stench out across the meadow, Shouldered my rifle, picked up my cane and offed to my bed. Hunt over.

Love the spud.

I would love to see a diagram of how it slides open and how it is a one hand release.

I have a beer in my hand as we speak.

That thing is awesome. Sure beats pitching a tent at every stop.

What a GREAT idea!

Like you, the years are not being kind to my body, and the tent-on-the-ground thing is getting harder to live with. Would definitely love to visit with you over a fire someday about how this idea came about.

Since I only live about 20 minutes away from Roswell (Nampa), I'll PM you about it sometime soon...

And YES, if you make it, I will buy one!

It has a latch that can be worked with one hand, then you pull the handle atop the galley lid and it rolls open. Set your tired bones down and rummage easily stowage stacked to your sides.

Thanks for the input, De Eee, AlexL.
