    The place it all starts and where we relax at the end of the day. The Loghouse RV park is located about 1 mile north of Enterprise on the W. side of Hwy 3.<o:p></o:p>

    I don&#8217;t know what was going on here but it appears Brian, the owner of the campground, is goo goo eyed over John and it shows how friendly everyone is. Maybe that&#8217;s too friendly for some.<o:p></o:p>

    Wow LB you've been busy! Thanks for posting all that info. And thanks for the reminder about Spot. I needed a little "kick" in the ass to get those batteries replaced. I'll PM you my Spot page in a little bit.

    I hate to say it but the weather isn't looking too bad for next weekend :clap

    Should be rolling in Thursday Afternoon sometime and Nacho and our trailer will be rolling in Friday afternoon sometime.

    Thanks for putting those pictures up LB. I love that area and have ridden all over it. There are plenty of critters to check out also. In one day we saw a beautiful Cinnamon colored bear in Bear Idaho. We then dropped down Klienschmidt onto the Snake River and found a couple Rattle Snakes. After that we ended up on Lick Creek but that didn't work out so well...:lol3

    Alas work is standing in the way for me as all you kids are having fun. I look forward to vicariously enjoying the event through all the pictures that will be posted.

    If anyone would like to borrow my rota-pak gas pack maybe one of the folks from Walla Walla could take it with them for you as I won't make it to HC this year. I think its a 2 gallon one. Welcome to it. I will be leaving Tuesday the 12th very early so you need to let me know in the next 2 days. I could leave it in the porch and they can grab it for you. 509-540-8629. you guys have a fun and safe time . rj the fluff

    Wanted to put out a plea to those of you that will be trailering to this event. Idarider has generously offered to bring lots of cooking supplies, but we would like to have at least a couple of camp stoves to cook fajitas on, otherwise we will be cooking late into the evening and those of you that know Jeff are well aware that he becomes quite worthless as the evening wears on :freaky We could also use a couple of large skillets and knives.
    LB, you have outdone yourself with all these ride maps. Only problem is, there are so many that I'm not going to be able to choose.
    Safe travels everyone! Look forward to seeing you all!

    This was indeed my first large gathering and I will attend it until my days of being hotel bound like some others I know! PICKLE.:lol3. I will lead a ride to dug bar Friday and bring 3 gallons of spare gas for those that need it. It will be a slow all day ride with lunch at imnaha store. For those that are noobs and worried about being to slow or not having enough gas this will be the ride for you. Nice easy pace and one of the favorite rides of the area. We will take the whole day to get there and back. Plan on a departure of about 9am Friday and a return of dusk Friday evening. As many as want to go. If some of the faster riders want to go you guys and gals are welcome to rail ahead. For those with less dirt skill we will travel ata pace that is comfortable for you. The ride to this area is worth many stops and has some scenery that must be seen. So plan a whole day of majestic easy dirt/gravel riding. And bring your cameras, i will gladly spend as much time as possible getting pics with your camera of you! Absolutely suited to new riders and is a perfect practice and learning road to take. Come join me. I'll be there wed. Afternoon so find me and let me know you'd like to go and we'll make it known who will be going so you won't be left behind. My bike can make it there and back on one tank so the extra 3 gallons will be for anyone needing it.

    John

    I am going to Flora for the school days celebration.and thought I'd offer to take a nOOby ride up to Troy and on over to Flora on Sat. where we can check out the festivities.

    I am fat, old and on a little 250... I will likely bring my trailer and will have a couple extra gallons of fuel just in case. I will try to stop for pics... bring your cameras, snacks, water... whatever you think you might need and a good attitude... and a smile...

    I haven't done this route yet... but it should be fun.

    Check out the link Katy (Lives2rideKTMs) posted in the second quote down.

    Thursday I follow Ernie. Pick something together as a group and I'm in. Hell bent or otherwise. Maybe the other way out of imnaha. We haven't traveled that yet. What say you. Mark is bringing the gs so we have to keep him upright. Not that he can't rock that puppy, but less gravel napping the better eh? Yu got something in mind?
