BigDog/Dingweeds/AndFriends/Idaho/Montana2014

Or
I'm good--but I ain't no Dingweeds !!!!


In August of this year (2014) me and my good friend Dingweeds---along with 2 other good friends----BobBob----and Rick Horton---all on Yamaha WR's did a huge loop of Idaho and Montana.

We all hauled our bikes to 3 Forks Montana to start the ride and left our tow vehicles there for duration of the ride.
We carried camping gear and cooking gear and stopped pretty much when we pleased. BobBob lives in Idaho (sometimes)---so he met us on the trail midstream.

Here's a few pre-view pics of our ride.

Just got back from riding most of the Tour of Idaho T1(skipped the desert, and the Fish Butte trail).
Now that I got a feel for the lay of the land, I'm going back next year for a giant adv bike loop
Idaho,Montana/ hotsprings/plane crash sites/ghost towns/camping, fishing tour...lets see what you guys did!


IRON LAKE IDAHO- TID DAY4

It was this spot after surviving the Hat Creek lake singletrack solo that I hatched the idea for a more casual tour,
and catching some of the fish jumping in this lake...Beautiful country. Subscribed.
