Yearly N.W. Montana Checkin Thread

Hi all,
As some of you know I have started this thread for the last few year.
Just chime in if you are in NW MT.
It usually generates a few rides some fishing and a beer night or two. Some of you I have not herd from for a while.
I know I have shamelessly use it to try and talk my fellow adventures into things I want to do in the past (most turned out fun and all were an adventure) but will try and contain myself this time.
While we are on the subject start thinking Hells Canyon June check the Pacific Northwest I'm thinking we could make this Fun, great riding all the way down and back fish the hole way then, Alaska??
I know I promised.
Please check in let us know your alive.
Chaos

Chaos - IN - Montana

Still here -

Already got cabin fever thinking about spring and we just got into January

Chaos, you and your KLR brethren will have to come back up for my annual spring "Get out of the house" run. March ice wars don't have a chance this year and I'm not waiting for April again to find a clear path to the street.

We did a nice 165 mile loop to get to the pastries last season.





I got told I ate too many pastries and collapsed my suspension!

Maybe ride the Vermilion drainage across from HW 2 (all dirt) over to Noxin cut over to Thomson pass Over to Wallis Idaho then MoonPass to Slate Creek up The Saint Joe to Saint Marries . I will post a tentative route soon.

We're getting a ton of snow this year! Going to make an interesting spring runoff.

I've got some friends who stay at their cabin weekly and they say they've got a ton of snow on the ground this year (up around Moose Creek).

I haven't been on here in forever! I always seem too busy. I did have a great summer racing the Montana Cross Country Series this year. Took 1st in every single race and gained a couple of sponsors.

Also upgraded my race bike this year. I was long over due.

If you call going from -17 F to plus 27 and snowing thawed out, it's downright toasty!

+34 in Columbia Falls and raining. Predicted rain 80-90% for the next seven days, holy sheepshit batman!

This is supposed to be sledding and ice fishing season, not spring...

BEER NIGHT????????????????????????.
I was hoping for a Little more response to my plans but we can decuss them over BEER.
As the brewery is closed for the season where and when. I still have two taps and a full bar but am a bit off the path, but my place is always open to fellow hoodlums.
Name it Kalispell, C falls someplace that works for everbody, lunch, beers what ever.
Remember 3rd week of June Hells Canyon. We will drink a few beers over Alaska, PK is buying a new Beamer and has his hart set on it.
I have committed to Hells Canyon and plan to make a week plus of it. I of course I will go it alone, but am hoping for company . Get the calenders out and lets set a beer night.

DirtRider way to go.
