It looks odd. Where he stopped is possibly near water looking at the map, unless it is one of those dry creeks.

Good news is the lows in that area last night were not too bad. It looks like he is at 6000 feet or so. The NWS stations around there are all over 50F. (At 5 AM this morning)

He did tell me he was carrying a light bivvy...

then he probably camped. We're prepared to head back up for assistance if needed. We'll keep watching the spot.

He looks to be pushing his bike by the speed. He's a long way from the main road. It could be a long day. Hopefully he brought some instant coffee!

How I spent my summer vacation...






I was convinced that I had leaking intake seals, but they don't show any obvious indications of a leak.

Didn't the name on the bike give you a pretty good idea what the problem was?

In case you want an alternative to a GoPro. These could be cool, at $180 bucks it's not too expensive either!

I still think you will get slapped walking into the ladies locker room wearing those.

I'm probly ruining his story telling fun, but ... He had some steep-ass baby-head-strewn hillside issues yesterday evening, and ran out of daylight. So pulled on his bivvy and spent the night.

This morning with actual daylight and full of oats, he squished a buncha baby-heads and bolted to Challis town.
