Good stuff! Nothing beats having places to ride, and buddies to ride with. Thanks for posting.

Owyhee county Gumbo mud

One thing I'm trying to learn... Make sure it's dry when you venture out into the Owyhee's.

Poison creek road...This little mud-a-rama costed me a clutch.....












This one was near reynolds creek road

Gumbo

Yup, the gumbo out there can be very nasty. It's been the bane of many. We hit a little last January by Hemingway Butte. Nothing at all like the mess you went through. Had to delete the counter-sprocket guard after this ride.

Have ridden in SE Oregon and Nevada a few times, awesome riding. Looks like I need to include Idaho. Thanks for the mud warning.

Yo!

Very nice IDRDR. Guess who? I know where that Owyhee mud comes from, I was there, but how did you get all that green on your bike? So are we done on dirt for the year? Snow??

Thanks RP. Have you ever hiked through clay that just builds and builds on your boots? It's kind of like that. GUMBO is I think the actual scientific soils name for it. And it's an apt term. Shlt sticks and sticks. Tire traction goes away almost immediately unless you can keep the tires moving fast enough to blow the mud off (good luck). Stay away in spring right after snowmelt, or after lots of rain when the upper layers are saturated with water. More will come, but it may be a while.

My dad used to ranch in that area, I remember him coming to town once in the spring when it was wet. He chained up all four tires, it took him 10 hours to drive the 50 miles to pavement. It's a good place to be from when its raining.

I am a geologist and spent time doing mineral exploration there in the 80s. Great area for riding. Going back is on my bucket list.
