September 13-16, 2012 Selway River O'Hara Campground (A larger group campground nearby has also been reserved) Near Lowell, Idaho. Cost: TBD (around $30) This gathering was prompted by a bunch of folks that participate in MNWilly Stay Sober Thread. Those of us that don't drink attend other ADV events, and all are welcome to come hang out with us sober riders. We only ask that for this weekend, please no drugs or alcohol. If a weekend without a drink is a problem.....then it may be a problem. There's great riding in the area and three planned meals for the weekend. I'm hoping to have a couple meals that showcase Idaho's wildlife. The plan is for Salmon on Friday followed by elk and beef steaks on Saturday night. And a big breakfast before Everybody departs on Sunday. It's a remote part of Idaho. Camping this time of year is ideal. No skeeters, mild temps, passes are free from snow. This weekend last year, the coldest at night was 50 and never warmer than 80. Three pristine trout rivers meet here. The Lochsa, Clearwater and Selway. There's a restaurant (Wilderness Cafe) with good food at the entrance. Another close to Lolo pass (Lochsa Lodge) There's a small, clean motel also at the entrance. (about 2 miles from the camping sight) Also, a resort area with cabins (a bit pricey at $135 p/night) There's gas at the entrance. A convenience store with a good supply of ice cream. There will be room for RV's at an additional cost. But no hookups or electric The camping areas are the best part. Beautiful! There's enough to host any size group. There's a large group camping sight or small riverside areas and anything in between. Camping areas were open and the entire place had very few campers this time of year. Kids are back in school and hunting season hasn't started. Most of the campers were fly fisherman. Catch and release rainbow trout were providing fun for those folks. Riding is great all around the area. There's plenty of great twisty pavement and lots of easy, scenic dirt routes. Most camping areas are located on pavement. A few have just a small stretch of dirt. There's a group of about 20 sober campers that have there own camp sight every year. Camp fire meetings every evening at 7pm. Depending on attendance and preference, we may have recovery type campfire meetings. This is a wilderness area. There isn't cell service or wifi. There will be a local motel room rented for showers and wifi will be available at that location. More details to follow. Mark your calendars!
