    Hey guys, I'm finishing up the Idaho BDR south-to-north in a few days and will then be making my way over to Seattle. I'm on a 690 with aggressive knobbies, does anyone have some suggestions on good BDR-style routes that would get me from the Idaho/Canada border to the Seattle area with as little pavement as possible?

    GPX files would be awesome if you've got them!

    Here is my route in 2016 - it is a loop from Seattle to NW Idaho and back, based on the link above. Each and of the day is a suitable camping spot... Each link is a full day of riding with distance, average speed and elevation info.
