ah memories

Great pictures!! tell me u flew up some of those hills! Thats what i dreamed of doing when i was there. Its a really beautiful place, The basin area really is an offroaders dream... i lived there against my will for a cuple of months lol seriously, about 150 miles away from salt lake city i believe, (or thats what they told me) Nothin much in that area really exept for indian reservations, and dont let them catch u lol. Its nice there in the summer but gets very cold in the winter, an icy snowy desert it becomes.

Just met with surgeon, sounds like if I choose a laproscopic procedure the down time is minimal. Sounds good to me, let's get this over with! Thanks again.
THANKS for the links. I'll keep those. I should go down there & ski. A WEIRD,snowless winter up here(Idaho). I plan to haunt that area this summer. I always liked it but never really explored the backcountry there. Thanks for the motivation. Winter's a great time for a motocycle guy to have a hernia. They'll fix you up fast. They did me--twice. Good luck. You won't need it.

Looks a great ride and great pictures. We went thru there on the TAT a few years ago, but we were too focused on getting to Oregon to stop and smell the flowers. Looks like a good place to go spend a few days like you did.

We stayed in downtown Baker and had a good time. We actually got in early and spent the latter part of the afternoon drinking beer with a couple from Denmark. We ran into them again the next night in Eureka.

Quota, do you have any info on this event? It is not mentioned on the SilverJack web site. Thanks, JB

Great report. I've been to the summit of Wheeler twice now. By hiking standards, it's not long but man, it takes the wind out of you :) Well worth the suffering for a spectacular view though. And the caves are just as spectacular.

Nicely done!

It seems the last few years I have been relegated to more "weekend warrior" status, but that is changing and I want to take some longer loops through the intermountain west. Maybe CDR or part of the TAT. Or get a GPS and just start wandering.
Sounds good. Keep in touch. I'm planning on quite a few rides down where you are & up here. R C
