Taking a year off because of the new youngster and limited time. You can't leave a kid in a fenced yard, like a goat.


I'm still riding, just putting in more effort.

I'll let you guys know. The fires in Colorado have kinda stymied our plans for next week. We may head to Tennessee instead for job interviews and to look at neighborhoods.

If any Utards would like a riding partner for theTour of Idaho (T1) late August early Sept, shoot me a PM. I'm thinking about renting a small Uhaul truck or a pickup for the drive home.

I think the fire season is going to be an issue no matter where you ride this year!

USFS has a great web page for keeping track of it all:

Then I borrowed some equipment and shredded three acres that was pretty flat and planted a pasture. I got the 8n for a restore project and to continue my hobby farm project. Next spring I'll put in some more water line and plant more. I have a veggie garden too, but nothing as cool as Kev. I also started planting trees. Nine cottonwoods along the fence line. My plan is to terraform the whole place.

Thought I'd mention that there is actually a pretty decent amount of good info on the Utah BLM's facebook page:

For example here is a stat from today:

UT - Wildfire Update from www.utahfireinfo.gov
Church Camp Fire 5,950 acres
Clay Springs Fire 93,787 acres
Millville Canyon Fire 109 acres
Pole Creek Fire 2,028 acres
Seeley Fire 23,410 acres
Shingle Fire 1,060 acres
Wolf Den Fire 22,000 acres

Thinking of leaving friday afternoon and heading north on the BADB coming home on Sunday evening. Anyone have any recommended routes? I'm thinking mountains of course. Tetons? I'll be camping and mostly looking to wander. Any suggestions appreciated.

i've got seamless 24k topos for the lower 48 on my 'puter if you need a recon tool that ain't availble elsewhere... a variation of the uintah loop would be nice... I'd love to know how much land near the tetons is public. I'd guess alot of private or protected land up there from my limited backpacking in the anywhere-near-by area.
