    With 6 kids you are rich in ways time will reward with pure joy, but you know this already.

    Let me know about your ride, I'm sitting in Blackfoot tying up loose ends today, trying hard to make a full move. I could use a good ride.

    I got the Kow back together! It's finally handling like it should! I finished it up Wednsday night (thursday morning about 2 am) and headed out camping with the wife and kids the next day and stayed til sunday afternoon. It was a ggod time. I managed to get a good DS ride over Antelope pass and around Copper Basin from where we were camped in Iron Bog campground. Now I'm sitting in a hotel room in Missoula, stuck here for work, and probably wont get to ride for a week or two.

    I am planning on taking a weekend ride with my friend from Boise soon, hopefully our schedules can mesh and we can get a good ride in.

    Will you be camping or motel'n it? I'm supposed to be deer hunting then, but lately, I like riding lots better. I'll check out the budget and work schedule and let you know. I haven't been able to do any good rides this year.

    I fianally escaped the evil clutches of Idaho Falls. Wasn't easy but I am gone. For now on I am a TX rider. I will miss the great riding and the good friends but I will not miss Idaho Falls. 33 years in IF and hated that town from the start. The last 4 yrs or so being the worst. Mayor ("guilty-saw it in is eyes") Feurman should be but a bad memory but won re-election with what 95% of vote?! Anyway not my problem. That and the times made this jump necessary. Perhaps I'll come up for a Magruder ride.

    Best wishes all.

    Sad to see you go, but you have to do what you have to do. I might be headed out of here in the near future, depending on a few things. I wish you well, too bad we didn't get another ride in.

    What part of TX?

    That's a big move Mr West. I'm missing E Idaho a little, but I was there most of 54 years. W Idaho is an easy adjustment hopefully milder winters.
    It was fun riding Medicine Lodge/Leadore with you.
    Will watch for posts if you can do the Magruder.

    I start to miss the backcounty of e-idaho then I remember - ah yes snow, cold... I went riding yesterday - short day less than 200 mi but I got in 10mi or so of dirt roads. A few miles of that was very fun. My new riding buddy and I plan to got to "hill country" soon. Hope to find some Adventure rides there.
    I can't complain about weather - beautifull day - started out at about 50 and got to 65ish.

    Floorpoor: sorry didn't answer your question I'm near Houston (gulp) I try to avoid the city I live in Katy nice place.

    wireman: do you not read your PMs? or are you mad that I didn't help with the wheel? So sorry
