    I guessed correctly. I saw you stopped in front of the John Deere dealer south of Ontario at 5:00. I tried to get turned around and say hi, but you took off too fast. I kinda thought you might be headed to Redmond.

    I could be wrong, but I think that Justo's still has ethonal free but you have to splurge for the super.

    Anybody got a great recommendation for a hot springs that will be easily accessible this time of year? Looking for a great camp spot that is 150-200 miles away. I'm planning on taking a lady friend two up for a shake down cruise to see how she likes riding in the dirt. This means good graded gravel or two track. Nothing crazy like I would normally want to ride. Looking to go April 14th. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. :ear

    That's why I'm bringing my own blonde babe with. Really looking to do some gravel though. What's the name and or more exact location of that one for future reference?

    Willow Creek Hotsprings is 174 miles from Boise. But you've been there already. There are plenty of dirt/gravel ways to get there. That's about the only one I can think of that meets your criteria.

    Everything else snowed in or not 2-up material? How about going further away?

    The Alvord Hot Springs is on a gravel road. That's the only other one I can think of that you could get to this time of year. Oh I forgot about Crystal Crane Hot Springs. Of course you have to pay there though. You can ride a lot of two track/gravel to get there.

    Thanks Ed. Stupid snow..... We may just go a little shorter and go to Loftus. That road should be clear pending any dumps before the weekend after next. Hopefully there won't be too many people there this early.

    Who's going to be the first to complete all the challenge sites this year? Any guesses? I think since Idaho Sam is now retired he has a shot at it. :amazon

    I always enjoy seeing where you guys go.

    I got lucky with work schedule last year, and also got started early... so I was the first to finish them all in 2011... not sure I can get as many days in this year as I've got some rafting trips, and fishing trips I'm committed to this summer, but good luck to everybody this year!! go get em'!

    took a nice ride out Succor Creek and Leslie Gulch with a buddy on Friday... was cool but nice, only got snowed on a couple of times... ;o)

    I was hoping take advantage of the near record temps and be the first to post up some challenge point photos, just to make everyone who had to work today jealous.:evil Lucky Peak bird observatory, Pearl or Rockville would have sufficed. Unfortunately I don't yet have a bandana for the requisite photos, so I ended up cruising around Lucky Peak, Robie creek, and Rocky Canyon, just for the fun of it :D
