WooHoo!
Nice work, guys! This is gonna be a great week. Or ten days. Whatever.

I'm hoping to end it at Painted Rocks where I'll meet Kristen so I can spend a couple of days relaxing in the shade and catching up on rest from all my relaxing riding.

Again after our ride since I am going to Grandjean ID for the Stanley Stomp this route is outstanding for me.

Would an 'old man on a little bike' qualify?

Hmm...I've never seen so many smiles as at the end of a long day, when everyone pulls into your camping destination after a long, dust, rough ADV ride.

What do you guys call an old man? You aren't old as long as you can ride.

Maybe you should call it guys who enjoy the ride rather than think it is a race.

I've got no problem with the term "old man" --- as long as it is referenced with love, reverence, and awe.

Hey, you get to my age you could care less how folks view you....only concern is if you can stop quickly enough to relieve yourself; in time.....

This sounds like a great group to ride with!

I got a NR Adventure Dry bag a couple of weeks ago. Looks like a great bag; everything needed to strap to bike, heavy duty and should be water / dust proof.

Wow!

I'll try to catch up at least when you are in my area (Polaris, Bannack, Lemhi Pass). I don't know how you could improve this part of the route!

My motto is never turn down a chance to get gas or take a leak.

Got my NR survivor dry saddle bags yesterday and really siked on them.

Plenty big and very visible... If only my bike wasn't in 3 feet of snow, dying to start tinkering

Agreed, thanks so much guys for all the planning, routing, maps, ect! I asked for 2 weeks off so 10 days is great, 14 even better
Chris, totally on board with doing the same and having the gf and dog meet and camp at painted rocks. Maybe we can small group it back that way since were both Florence folk anyway. Wrap up the 1000 with a bang!
