My parents bird down there. I was thinking of loading up the camper with the TW on the back and visit them. Not said directly, but after a brief conversation with my wife, I quit thinking.

Is it ok to pray to win the lottery?

No snow, 70's, dog-beach. Hmmmm?

I'm enjoying ya'lls thread a ton. Except the upcoming beach part. Kidding. Keep it going, great photo's and the writing by both of you is so fun to read!!

Did you win the lottery yet? If so, don't forget your TW friends. Certainly, you could host a big TW party when the good riding weather returns to Idaho.

Admiral, we had an awesome trip. Didn't see you anywhere out there, so I guess you opted for more snow than beach. But hey, as we get better and better at the long distance and multiday trips, we might be able to come see you some summer. When you don't have any of that snow stuff.

Warmer weather = TW time

No snow now, so I'll get a little practice riding in the back 40.

Drier doesn't always = Dry
Got stuck for a bit, but the gumbo mud finally let us out.


Georgie, she always up for a ride


A few days later I did a little riding in the sandy hills.


Can't wait for all the high school activities to end so me and the wife can get some camping and riding in.

Hey Admiral,

Didn't take long for Georgie to abandon you on that first hill climb when you stalled out. Smart dog. She was out of there in case there was carnage. Good save.

The "bobsled" run was a weird piece of road. How does a road like that get created?

Springtime is coming. Enjoy the warmer and drier weather.

Looks like Georgie was trying to show you where to go.

Now that spring is just around the corner I'm looking forward to seeing what you have coming up for us next.

Mud. Ugh. I hate all the cleaning it off afterwards. If you're lucky, the same rain that made the mud will leave a nice big puddle on a concrete (preferable) or asphalt (less preferable) surface you can ride through a few times to get the bulk of it off.

I was just looking at our bikes after this weekends rainy ride and not looking forward to the cleanup. Yours looks worse.

I think dirt bikes have created this short high banked trail. Next time I'm out there (it's been raining and all is wet) I'm gonna reverse it and go up the bobsled. I was gonna do it that day, but got sidetracked by the other hills I had to overcome.

I even made a list of places to go this year. So many places, so little time

I washed the mud off as soon as I got home. Can't let that mud cure or it will take a hammer and chiesel to get it off.

When you upgrade to the TW 500 mud don't stick as much and Georgi never needs brushing. Just saying.

As much as I'd like a bigger bike for the "Big Bike Rides", just can't afford one...this year. If only #3's KTM 450 was a dualsport, I'd borrow it.

At $10 I was thinking of joining IAMC, but everyone rides bigger and go faster than me bikes. Though $10 ain't bad, even if it turned out to be a donation. Question for you from that site, what is a Challenger and/or club member. I see both listed, some have both listed?

Challenge ride?

The Challenge is some 40 or so different geographical spots in Idaho and surrounding States pick to give riders a destination and Challenge to get all 40 places in a riding season. I only got to 5 of them last year and some got to all of them. Prizes like a set of tires are given to the ones who win the Challenge. Get it? You have to be a paid member to receive the prize. So two birds with one stone.
