Ramble on

I'm gonna just ramble about my ramble here for a minute. Wish you'da been there.

Great ride last w'end ... Saturday, wife and daughter drove the pickup to Elko for a family get-together, and I took the loooooong way to meet them there.

Left SLC just before noon, I-15 N to Malad. My new Pirelli knobbies sang so loud I actually thought there was a siren coming up behind me once for a second. Gas in Malad then West through Holbrook, the back roads and mountain roads to Rogerson to Malta (knarly washed out road!), Almo, had a burger and a beer (Steinlager!) at Oakley, then to the base of Badger Mountain for a late, and lets say austere, camp. 300 miles the first day.

Sunday morning to Magic Mountain then Rogerson, Threecreek then Jarbidge for a burger, a beer and a Labor Day parade!! Antique autos, fire engine, jeeps up and down the dirt main street several times. Way cool. Wish I coulda stayed for the Corn Feed at 4:00 ... Ribs, corn and great people! But no, blasted South past the junction to Deeth. I was looking for N Fk Humbolt, but missed the turn and popped out at hwy 225. I started back into the dirt roads looking for the sneaky N Fk road but I was in a little sliver of country for which I didn't have a map, so I got scared and back to the hwy and South. 560 miles.

Probly just as well cause it was coming up on dinnertime and the fam was waiting for me in Spring Cr. Mom was givin me the stink eye for riding alone I guess. Sisters thought I was f'ing crazy. The bro-fro-ano-mo and the cuz thought I must be tougher than a nail. Wife just sorta rolled her eyes up in her head.

I always wanted to explore that area. Dad's best freind, Bill Pogue and his partner gamewarden Conelly Elms were murdered in the Owyhee desert by Claud Dallas in the early 80s and I kept thinking about Dad and the other lawmen out there looking for Bill's body and for Dallas.

Friggin big country out there. You gotta get gas at every opportunity. One little get-lost and you could easily face a hundred unplanned miles. Big, wide and long.

Monday we played a half day at the horse races, loaded up the Adv and schlepped it home in the pickup.

Huh?!! F*ckin A!

No matter where you go, there you are.

Ah-Yaaaaaa! Them were the days.

Trailtwister, thanks for the "ramble". One of my most memorable rides was in and around that area.

Has anyone ever been to the end of Arthur Fork Spur off of Skyline?

Is it a dead end?

Thumb Willard Peak / Ben Lomond

Saw 2 guys on dual sports riding some very narrow single track around Willard Peak and Ben Lomond this afternoon. That was some impressive riding!!

Which Skyline does it go off of? Too many different Skyline Drive roads around here to keep straight. Arthur Fork doesn't sound familiar, but I can check maps and old GPS tracks.

Nope. The asshat that got me all excited about selling the bike bailed. He made an offer before getting a loan approved.

Oh well...
