Treasure Valley Winter Dirt Rides/Campouts
 
There are a few of us here that like to ride through the winter to help the calendar pages flip a little faster towards spring. Even more rare are the few that like to camp in the winter. This thread is for planning day rides in the dirt and an overnighter once a month.

I will start it off with a camp and ride December 7-8 at Weiser Sand Dunes. Come out and camp or come out and ride one day. We'll have a big camp fire to warm things up Saturday night. Damp winter sand is a hoot to ride! As it gets closer to that weekend it's possible that I might change it to the following weekend if the weather is looking particularly bad. Here is a video I found of some winter riding at the Weiser Sand Dunes:

It's the perfect place to practice your sand riding skills. Make sand your friend. :thumb If you fall down at least it's a soft landing. :D

Looks like I may have to work a little harder on the little bike search :evil

I'd argue that point!! FWIW, avoid the edges of the pooled water, looks awesome from a distance, before you hit it, looks like hell when ya wake up some 20ish feet from the point of bike stoppage:eek1
Lets find some snow, say Southern Gifford Pinchot, maybe Birds Creek area? Island Cabin comes to mind:deal

intriguing, Pearl Harbor day and in the sand? I may just do it, I just hope the weather is nasty, no fun riding in moisture free air. Will the temps be above freezing? I hope not, gotta separate the riders from the owners:deal

I was out there one time when there was a few inches of snow on the sand. That was fun. Loose white stuff on loose sand and sometimes loose white stuff on frozen sand. :clap

Come on down and don't forget your favorite "innards warming beverage" for sitting around the campfire. :kumbaya:loaded

Short notice, but thats how I roll

I'm heading out to Rabbit creek Monday (11/25) and coming home on tuesday (11/26). I'll park the tent trailer at the rabbit creek parking lot and will probably get there around noon or so. I will have plenty of fire wood and even a nice little quart of cherry moonshine :wink: that I picket up the other day. Note that I am not bringing a little bike this time. I'm having a shake down weekend for my new to me 950.. Pyro256 will bring his pig bike also. So come on out and at least say hi.
