I'm in for Steptoe Butte. I got my weekends mixed up. Lewiston breakfast the next weekend.

My puter is slow and I can't zoom in the map. Is the route out past Kamiak Butte. thru the valley toward Colfax? One of my favorites in the spring.

Cool - this is working out well! Yes, I was planning to skirt Kamiak to the west on the way there, and to the east on the way back.

I may try to make it to Dismores even if I can't go on the whole ride, just to meet everyone and say hi to Mr. Vintage and thetourist.

Good inagural Palouse ride today guys - definately in the ADV spirit! Good to meet you, Spaniard, and I'm glad thetourist could join us as well. I'll post a few photos in a minute.

I've got another ride in mind when it's warmer and my bigger bike is in one piece - we should do a lunch run to Enterprise. Lots of great twisty roadsand incredible scenery.

Sounds like a fun group! Unfortunately I am no longer technically in the Palouse - I moved up to Spokane last fall. I'll pm you my email for use in a list, though - I love the Palouse, and enjoy going down there. I won't be able to ride until May, though, as I sold the bike I had and my new-to-me DRZ is waiting to be picked up in Texas. My big Texas fly-and-ride is at the end of April, beginning of May. After that . . .

Good to meet you, too.

The road to Enterprise sounds like a great ride. I have actually made part of that ride before but we only went as far as the little diner where we stopped for a quick bite to eat before heading back. I have drill this next weekend and then Spring Break starts a week after that. My wife will be out of town for dance camp in Provo, UT so if anyone wants to go on a ride(s) during that time it will be easy for me to take off with little notice. Again, it was great meeting everyone and in spite of the cold and the embarrassing little crash, I had a blast and am looking forward to the next one.

Talking Ride this weekend? (March 13 or 14)

Well ever since the first ride (Feb. 28) I have been anxious to get out again. I am just wondering if anyone would like to go on a ride this weekend (Friday and/or Saturday). Moscow weather is going to be about 45 degrees both days and Lewiston is going to be about 55 degrees both days. I am up to go anywhere and it looks like all of this fresh snow should be melted by then although things may be little more promising at a lower elevation. Anyone interested?

Kinda quiet on the Palouse, I think everyone is frozen / hibernating. The snow's beginning to really bum me out...

Slap a weather man day

When I first started looking at the weather for this weekend I was excited because the forecast said warm and sunny. Now it seems like every time I look at the weather forecast they keep extending the snow one more day into the week. I propose that we have a "slap a weather man day" since they toy with our emotions like this. I did however go for a ride yesterday down to the Lewiston/Clarkston area but it wasn't anything to be excited about. Maybe next weekend.

Today

It was fairly warm down in the hole today so I rode down the river and went up Steptoe canyon. Lots of rocks coming off the hills into the road, lots of fun going up the canyon.. Much colder on top. The gravel roads on top had some nice slimy spots and some of those deep gravel / mud pudding under them spots. Got out on the highway and the wind made it a full time job to stay on the road. I figured that the WSP who lives in Uniontown would be out, and he was. The straights south of Uniontown are his usual spots.
