SoosCreek Timely Information!

I am thinking of riding some Idaho back roads in September and will be following along.

Followed some of your trips in the past to Mexico and such. Thanks for the report...
We have more unpaved roads than you can ride, OH and thanks for following me along on my South of the Border Ride

Looks like you had a great time. Thanks for posting the RR so I can live vicariously through your adventure. I have gotten soft in my older age and just find the idea of giving up the comforts of home a little more than I care to do at this time. But.....seeing this, and others, great trips is slowly giving me the motivation.

Will you be posting the route? How the heck did you get the GS's over that log?????
I too am older but I am playing as long as I still can... the body is always reminding my 25 year old mind it's not

As fro the GS's just wait for the video we aren't there yet.

Very nice start and I'm looking forward to the following along for the entire trip.

Now about that statement you made just a couple days before you headed out on this ride.....you know the statement, the one about slowing down.

Don't make me wait to long for the next installment.

thanks again for highlighting our map, Sam.

Day 2 Little Did I know... "the best laid plans of mice and men often go astray"

We woke early to a beautiful blue and cloudless sky, the water rolling by the Saint Joe lulled me to a great slumber the evening before., so I woke refreshed.

We had around 20 miles or so of very twisty pavement ambling along the river, and well........... if you got ride pavement it might as well be twisty Turned off on to a single lane tarmac that ambled along towards Red Ives Ranger Station some 10 miles in.

Matt's River Vid



This was the jumping off point back on to dirt








You Know Bob is always smiling.... that's just totally... "Bitchin"





More later

Where can I purchase a Idaho Sam poster?

The production values of your reports just keep getting better. Looks like a good mix of folks, and some tasty trails.

Big fan and looking for more.....

Hey there I almost missed your posting.. that would be very bad. Yea I was eye balling that road down there; so where did it take you?

Glad your ride is everything you hoped it to be.


The gas debacle is coming up

Srry about the interuption

Back to day 2...

As I was saying Red Ives is down a nifty little one lane road, seems everyone enjoyed it. As I had told the crew earlier this is a critical point insomuch as fuel conservation. We are going to travel through the Bitterroot range, a very rural area; beautiful yet devoid of populous.















All goes well as we ascend up the 320 to the intersection of 715.







The dust trail was Curtis.. I am always missing him in the shots... He's a throttlemiester













Me chewing on my Lunch at the intersection to 715



Steve is saying I have NO Idea where I am guys I'm sure having a good time....... Anybody hungry?










The 915 is a great road of embedded granite full of twist and turns all the way down to Ceder Junction (well that's what I call it)











It was at this junction where I had a turn of events..... it's going to be Long day





Hi Al


This song popped in my head while I was riding this area.
