    I updated the Lolo-Avery trip to three days. Two nights. 158/147/67 miles respectively (Lolo to Lolo). Picked a couple of camping targets, but we can be flexible there.

    Looks like a commitment from Wansfel, LC1, Brad, Force, CaptS and PhilthyP a maybe. WX was looking pretty good but now looks like 60% chance of rain Sat/Sun. Bring rain gear.

    The return track follows the IDBDR track in reverse. Wish the weather was looking better.

    I can only do a Sat-Sunday ride, and may end up having to cut firewood this weekend anyway. So, looks like I'm out:(

    Sat/Sun regional forcast is 60 percent. Might have lost our window of opportunity.

    Yeah just looked up weather for the track. 48 degrees and dry is one thing. 48 degrees and wet gets miserable very fast.

    The percentages and temps don't look good at all for Saturday and Sunday.

    I just came across the Avery trip and I'm bummed. I just bought a new 1090R and have three days off in a row this weekend, but I can't go as I was a dumbass and broke my ankle 3 weeks ago riding my Husaberg near Wallace. If you guys go, have fun.

    Saturday back to Lochsa and a possible side trip to Tom Beal Park. (84 Mi.)

    Think I'll wander over to Hoodoo Lk later this afternoon. Spend the night, wander around Saturday and make the most of it while I can.

    The Avery loop can sit in the wings for when the stars are in better alignment.
