Idaho Backcountry Discovery Route (IDBDR) 2015-Who's In?

Most of you are familiar with the Backcountry Discovery Routes, but for those that aren't, here's some background: http://www.backcountrydiscoveryroutes.com/ Several states are already done, with maps and routes out. The BDR group scouted the Idaho one this year; the routes are supposed to be out early next year. Some more info on this specific one:

https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/idbdr

Anyway, I'm planning on taking about a week next summer and riding it. Part of the route is the Magruder Corridor, which typically isn't snow-free until late July. I'm thinking the last week in July or the first week or two in August. It's a fine line between snow and wildfires.

The ride starts across the border in Jarbridge, NV, and goes to the Canadian border. The ride will be backcountry camping most nights. I understand that the route will go to Bergdorf Hot Springs-might be a place to get a room with a bed for a change-not to mention soaking sore riding muscles.

I've had a great time with the Best of Montana 1000 ride the last couple years, put together by Timmer and Wansfel and others. Some of the best vacations of my life. I'm afraid I won't make that ride for 2015 due to lack of vacation time, but really want to hit the IDBDR.

So, who's in? And what week would work? Might as well set a date, start arranging vacation plans and time off from work.

Do you know if the IBDR will include the Idaho T routes I've been reading about? I don't think some of that is anything I should get involved in, but if it's not much more serious than the OBDR it'd be a blast.

Certainly not the vast majority of T1, from what I have read. That is focused on dirt bikes and is way over my head. The BDR is focused on bigger, ADV bikes. I've been on the Lolo Motorway, Magruder and Moon Pass; all are fine for big bikes. I hope the rest is as well. I guess that's why it's an adventure. Remember the saying...sometimes Adventures Suck when you're having them!

Plan to take the V-Strom. My butt hurts from just thinking about riding the WRR to the starting point.

Very tentatively in. That would be a week and a half for me, need to work that out at home.

I'd like to throw my hat. Probably won't be able to ride the whole route, but would enjoy riding part of it due to limited time off. I live in Boise and could offer up some tent space, showers, burgers and beer for anyone passing through.

Have they (Touratec) finalized the route yet? They were just mapping it out this summer when we saw them on the Lolo Motorway in August.

They haven't "published" them yet. Beyond that, I have no idea.

I"ve been interested in it from the first time I read they were doing it. I've probably ridden most of it already, but I haven't been in the extreme south or north.

Count me in. I'll follow you and the V-Strom anywhere.

I was not able to make the BOM2014. Very unfortunate. I would be interested more so the last week of August or the first or second week of September. Earlier than that interferes with Family Vacations. I have subscribed so I can follow.

The only time I can't do it is the 3rd weekend of July.

Hell yes!

My BOM2014 got REALLY abbreviated. Maybe I'll have better luck on an Idaho ride.

Sorry I don't recall your screen name from BOM14. Were you the broken ankle on day 1 or 2? Hope things go better this time.
