The store is now open. Ben is the proprieter and offers beer, ice cream and pizza for now. he has a limited supply of fuel as well.
Did he sell gas from the Visible Pumps? That would be awesome if those were actual working pumps.

Thanks for sharing your trip Mr. Fisherman, and hope you enjoy the Gem state.

Today i BBQ'd several hundred burgers, cheese burgers and all beef hot dogs to benefit veterans at Gowen field.
Met a distant relative who was in the service. Good times and it was good to give something back.

Pics soon.

Been out riding myself and am just catching up when i run across your excellent adventure. Dang man! I live in Boise too So you went out to Gowen Field I haven't been out there in a long time.

I see you catching some great shots of the backyard/playground. I am always telling you guys we have some awesome riding over here.

Regarding the snow we had an average snow year but that said most the upper routes don't get cleared until around mid July (snow gone to let clearing crews in) all in all I'd say your kicking ass Fishy. Sorry you didn't get in touch with me as I'm in Boise, could of had a beer, but heading up to Cascade (need to clear/cleanup my place for the 4th) and I have no internet there.

Shoup is pretty cool and yes those gravity pumps have been in operation since they were installed in the 20's

You are making that 250 scream with the ground your covering Hope you like the dryside.

See you out there

I came here to see if you didn't kick the bucket Instead I see you're having a ball. Good for ya. I'm still taking care of my familly. Not bad either. I will take my boys to browns camp instead.

You weren't kidding!!! You truly are putting that trailer though some great testing!!! I am sooooo jealous!!! I can't wait to get a few of those pictures you have in high resolution when you get home.

How are you liking those tires on your sumo wheels?? I picked up a supermoto myself, no, not a WR, but still a sumo Wonderin how you like the handling off road with your wheel setup.

Keep it up! Gonna have to live vicariously thru you for now... I'm behind on building trailers!

Loving the knobby motard setup and the low 14-50 gearing, its a keeper.

Wish i had video footage of me hopping logs on Lolo and busting through the mud and snow on top of the 109. That was fun!
By the way, there are no chicken strips left on the trailer tire and the sides are wearing faster than the middle.

Ray, sounds like oyu have been having fun.
Just in case you end up back in this area I will be in Pierce from sunday afternoon til Wednesday or Thursday riding the DR350.
Plenty of room to "camp" about like you did in Lewiston , full services, bars 2 blocks away.

I am easy to find from the Timber inn on Main street of Pierce, America go down hill , across the bridge and my old camper under a green snow roof is 40 yards to the right.
Just in case you want to explore the North Fork of the Clearwater.

Fireworks show Wednesday night, small town version.

To save gas I will probably ride the R1200GS up and back, love that greer Grade.
