Thanks for the advice. Looking forward to your write up of your recent trip.
We did go up Arco- Minidoka road. It is very remote. Really liked the Bear Trap Cave.
Just wondering if that weird cattle guard was still there. If it was you would remember it...
Yes, it was there. A big rise to get over it. Looks like a pickup or long wheel base jeep could get high centered. No problem for us, though.
Leaving the 19th from IF to go to Union Pass for the eclipse. It's a Saturday so if you're only in for a day trip either Skyline Ridge or Jensen Pass to Alpine. Looks like a number of people are going to show.
There are 500,000 people forecast to come to IF / Rexburg for the eclipse. So, decided to move the leave time for the eclipse to Friday, Aug 18. Any refugees?
Don't know if this is the right place for this, but I figure its closer than the SW part of the state.
Anyone know the road condition of W Camas Creek Road from Spencer to Kilgore, to Island Park?
I'm wanting to take the sport tour bike but its at least 12 miles of dirt road. Was wondering if its deep gravel or smooth packed. Any info would be helpful. Thank you very much.
I haven't been over it in 2 years but then it was smooth and well maintained:
Speed limit is 50 if that tells you anything. Should be no problem.
Alright folks. It seems my old thread is dead. Due to some major life changes recently, including a bad case of the cancers followed by my wife leaving me, I believe in going to find myself with a surplus of time on the weekends.
Looking for ride suggestions. Needs to be pavement as I'm riding a loaner Concourse 1400. Looking for routes leaving Blackfoot that I can do. Thinking along the lines of going to work loaded, leaving straight from there on Friday to a camp ground, and preferably be home Saturday night but would consider some longer routes and camping Saturday night too.
Sights to see, things to do along the way an added bonus, although trying to keep this as cheap as possible.
Hey buddy, did you traverse some of the tube? I can't tell from the pics, and I can't tell how steeply inclined. That has been my list for a while, I was only able to briefly explore COTM and loved the place.
That "speed 50" pic above. Any chance I could get a full digital copy of that? It would be awesome hung in my home.
All of my pics are available HERE. There is a download icon at the bottom right after you click on a picture. If you need a higher resolution for printing I think I have to get the link for you. The one you are interested in is HERE, though I think there are better ones. My older pictures are 2304 pixels wide max. I just upgraded my cameras and the new ones will be better.
The old thread went silent right after I moved here 4 years ago. I remember you and Questor (?) were active. Sorry to hear about your problems. I had a stroke so now on 3 wheels instead of 2. Weren't you a teacher? A couple of synapses fired when I read your post. Those your bikes on Craigslist?
Edit: Went to the blog link in your sig. We probably have a lot of overlapping interests. I was a machinist for 42 years. Ham radio - WL7H. Private Pilot.
Yup, still teaching. And yes, the overpriced old Honda's are mine. ADV discount and package deals available to satisfy the ex... About 4 years ago I ran out of time to do much riding and another fellow that lived in IF moved away. Probably contributed to the other threads death. Looking at changing my riding status from <1,000 miles per year to >10,000...
Yes, we went down in the tube. It doesn't go all that far. You definitely need a good flashlight. You can see where people have camped down in there. And unfortunately, scrawled graffiti on the walls.
.....never thought that it was that big. Thank you.
Government cave is about that big, but it goes back for a mile and a half.
Just got back from a frolic across Wyoming, Colo., Utah. RR Here
