Thought perhaps as much. There are two campgrounds close to each other on US2 on each side of the Yaak River where it hits US2. Also others up the Yaak River road. More towards Yaak.

Bear country. Take appropriate actions.

Timmer and I both are planning for these CGs for Friday night.

If you google camping troy Montana, there about 5 campgrounds. It will highlight where the Yaak River Campground is. Not able to reserve a spot, so I am guessing it is on a first come, first serve. I will be at this spot in the early afternoon of Friday. As I understand the itinerary, this is the gathering point for Saturday morning.

Thanks, I googled Troy camping and now I have a clue.

I'll get my duckies lined up before I get there although they might scatter a few times between now and then.

I'm looking forward to the ride and meeting everyone that I haven't met yet.

In the spirit of bear awareness I have a dog friend at the Grizzly/ Wolf Discovery Center in Glacier. Her name is Nakiska, shes a Karelian Bear Dog I had helped raise at my work (Wind River Bear Institute) . Ran into her parents who work there with her and told them about the BOM ride and hoping a possible visit while passing through. Really cool place to check out plus one of the sweetest badass dogs there is! Plus haven't seen her since a pup, puppy pic below.
Maybe I can talk them into some free cans of bear spray for the crew?? I know they do a bear mace recycling program and basically its to recycle the brand new unused cans from tourists. Ill try to pry at that part of it.
What do you think planners? Would be a cool little pit stop with lots to take from it!

Where exactly are they located? I only see the Yellowstone Center. If you could score some bear spray, that would be great. I wouldn't have to use my Butter Flavor Pam.

Just stand behind me and downwind...first time, but I broke down and bought "Counter Assault" since I could not get my 12ga to fit on my bike..

DONE!!

Also, I have a fresh set of 606's for the WR due in tomorrow. I'm going to try to wear out the present tires on some DS exploration rides here in the Puget Sound Basin (thinking SPADA Lake for starters). I'll mount the 606's just before the MT1000.

The only thing I see avalible for reservations with Fish Creek and Apgar campgrounds is group areas. Is there a reason a number of us can't go together in a group area? Most start with 9 people.
