    "I`d really love to see how you routed down from 3 Rivers for my own possible use in the future. Have a great trip!"

    BaseCamp/Benchmark Books and Google Earth - Right now I have about a 89 mile route from Three Rivers to Owyhee for gas.

    I've posted in the NW forum for some suggestions, but, so far only been told how alone I will be in the desolate know where land.....

    How was Patterson ride. I ended up going on the big bike ride. Been trying to get some off road time in on the big bike. Thanks Fletch, Sharpie and the rest of the group!

    So what your saying is you want more punishment. I will be happy to accommodate you. I will start looking at the maps for next Sunday.

    Are there good ST options for a feller on a little bike who doesn't want to possibly fall off a cliff? BTDT.

    :wave hey George, I was behind you guys yesterday going into Sierraville with the family. We did a camping recon in the gold lake area. It's pretty nice up there.

    Whose the BMW GS rider. We watched him expertly dodge a 6 PT. buck jumping across the road

    I am sworn to secrecy on any BMW questions.

    I plan on going the same weekend as the group on the other thread. I am camping with them but should run into you guys. Any of the other "Golden Valley" guys going? I can probably haul a bike if needed.

    I officially requested that Friday off from work today. I think I'm riding in with azimuth. Maybe I can donate to have you carry water for me?

    Are you going to bring an ice chest full of goodies? Ice for drinks and beer? I'l gladly chip in $$ for stuff that is already there since we will be riding our bikes there. I think the store is a few miles down the road.
    If you go up Thursday, you have a really good chance to get a camp site near the group and save a spot for Solemon and I.

    I am actually camping with another group close by. But I would be happy to haul your cooler/other stuff up, drop it off at your camp and haul it back Sunday. Solomon/Mark has my # or PM me. I am down by Galena HS but may be able to pick up your stuff. Think I will go up Friday morning.
