I bet! I bought some Buffalo Bore .44 once (when I was in AK)

I have a friend in Boise who's a .41 fanatic. You want me to see if he has some he's wiling to sell? I bet he has several thousand put away.

Spudmonger into Wyoming

Weather finally pursuaded me to weeble on. Didn't go on a grand loop like I was planning due to time constraints. Basically east from Idaho Falls via Kepps Crossing to Skyline Road (eastern side of little loop -great view of the Tetons) along a high ridge and down to Brockman Road. Thence via McCoy creek and Alpine. Then along Grey's River with a side trip to the Little Grey's River road and camp at mile 34. The next morning up McDougal Gap road to view unexplored Wyoming country - probably next year. Back down and retrace to Idaho Falls. The west side of the little loop is the Dan Creek road.

Into Wyoming

Grey's River Road



Up the Little Grey's River













Back down to the big Grey's River





And the to the camp site.





Dinner using my little Zip Stove. C battery blower and can burn twigs, pine cones, and whatever. Very light and lots of heat.



An incredible amount of gnats swooping in the trees. They never got down to ground level though...



In the morning it was way below freezing and the meadow next to the campground had so much frost it looked like it had snowed.



One thing about camping on the open range is that if there are any bears around, what bruin in his right mind would choose a 66 year old piece of goat meat over a nice slab of beef after a fat summer grazing...

Back down the Gap.





Down the river and back to McCoy Creek.

And back to Idaho Falls

One thing I forgot to mention. After almost 1,000 miles of Idaho dirt, finally saw another bike coming down the road. Greys river road. Hauling ass. Prolly a KLR. A belated high five to whoever ya are. I know, yer supposed to sneer and point at the ground....

Kinda sad. With all the great ADV roads I wonder why... or why not. Then see all the bare nikked folks riding monsters up and down the boulevard.

Kinda eyeballing the desert mountains south of Burley. Anybody prowled there?

The family and I left Idaho Falls 19 months ago. The family is back and I return, permanently, this Friday.

The pictures from your trips have me pretty damn excited about going home.

Thanks.

Nice pics! I was in IF 2 weeks ago, most of the same roads except gray and wet. I stopped and said hi to some 9xx riders from N. UT saw a few others. I need to go back and check out those bright blue skies!

Snow

Yesterday had 8 inches of snow on the Idaho-Montana line.South of Burley is fantastic riding . The only problem is that Las Vegas gets in the way eventually.

Kinda looked like nice places but sometimes google earth makes it look nicer than it really is. Stuck in Zion for a week but if we have some Indian Summer might try to cross the Arco desert to Burley, south across the mountains to city of rocks and more mountains to Pokey. Think I'll save Nevada for next year. I hear that the Middle of Nowhere is somewhere around there... sounds kinda nice after dicing with idjits in cages on Utah freeways.
