One aspect of this ride worth mentioning, the accuracy of Tony and Frank’s route. In over 2,500 backcountry miles, I think we had only two places where we had to deviate from the route on the GPS. Both were simple re routes that did not require backtracking.
A few more pics while we wait for DP to return.

Here is Tony coming back down the Gravely Range. It was somewhere along here tha my Go Pro was lost as the ride claimed it's first piece of electronics.

That's the kind of picture you hang in your office at work and look at every time you feel like quitting

...As for us we like to be in remote camp spots all by ourselves. We have been known to find a secret hidey hole where it may not be exactly legal to camp, but we are sufficiently hidden that it would be near impossible to find - unless you were looking for us.
Ah great, that's what I'm into as well. You gotta love camping in that open scenery like that, it's the best!

I love the Bannack ghost town, the saloon, the old stoves, the barber chair.

Any idea where the name comes from? Up in Canada Bannock is the name for an indian bread cooked on a stick over a fire, maybe Bannack is something similar?

The name "Bannack" is a derivative of "Bannock," which was the name of a local tribe

"The northern division of the Bannock tribe were encountered by Washington Territory Governor Isaac Stevens in 1853, who found them living on Salmon River in east Idaho. In all probability, these Salmon River Bannock had recently crossed the mountains from the east, escaping pressure from the Siksika Indians since they claimed as their territory, southwest Montana, including the rich areas where Virginia City, Bozeman, and other towns would later be established."

per http://www.legendsofamerica.com/na-bannock.html

When I read your post this morning, it planted a seed in my mind..... "Must have barm breac". So earlier today, I went to my local bakery and now here I sit with a big mug of tea and 2 slices of freshly baked barmbreac, topped with a lash of full fat butter...

Thanks to you acesandeights... There goes my diet....

Good stuff, Frank and Co.!!!
I was well-prepped for any weight because of my significant subframe modifications. Frank forgot that I carried the COLD BEER in my Polar Bear Cooler. Carrying that friggin cooler around for 2800 miles was not a fun time and took up a lot of seat space, trust me!
