I'm looking to head out to the S. Fork Boise via this route Sunday morning or I'd consider Thurs-Fri. If anyone else is interested, let me know. Ride out to the bridge or beyond, I'm flexible.

I'll join you but I'm closer to Eagle so I'll meet you at the Beacon Light Chevron 630ish? Let me know otherwise.

Owyhee - Indian Hot Springs Enduro

Hey Guys,

Seems like the weather's about right to try Jason's Indian Hot Springs trip - http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=673037

Myself and a couple other guys are planning on heading out this Saturday (May 3rd). Mid-Morning depart and returning Sunday mid-day. PM me if any of you guys are interested.

@Jason, thanks again for posting up this ride report, looks like a great ride.

Thx!

I was just following Mr. Cantrell. He's the one responsible for any suffering you may experience.
A few guys recently rode out there. I assume they'd have said something if the bridge was gone or something like that.
Here's a copy of my report without missing pictures: http://trailimage.com/indian-hot-springs

There's a 17% chance I'll join you if I think my kid can handle it. I owe him a ride.

And last nights afterwork ride was pretty sweet. The sun was shining, the flowers were blooming and conditions were perfect. Thanks Ron, Wayne and Matt :)

Treasure Valley Trail Machine Association is having their Fun Run this weekend. http://www.tvtma.org/

This is a great family-oriented event. I'd like to be there, but my boy has Senior Prom Saturday. Graduation on the way

Sounds like a good time, sorry I couldn't make it.

I made it out today though. Hit a couple of challenge sites. South Mtn was still snowed in past the mine, but I was able to get over New York Summit and back down through Murphy.

thanks

On the tiger, I was 0.4 from lookout but it was probably about 0.75 by road. Road still had 1-2 feet of snow, so probably a couple weeks before it is clear to the top.
