    On the road again, heading to Kim’s Marina for gas then to the York bar for food.
    Spent an hour or so at the Marina playing the “Where’s Phil game”
    Left notes with the cashier and on the gas pump saying we were heading to the York bar.
    Guess who was already at York bar when we arrived????
    Fak!
    You only get 1 guess.

    Supplies were purchased for the evening camp.

    Met a nice guy named Adam at the York bar. His house was just behind the bar a little ways. He let us camp in his back yard!

    Hank’s tent birthing something the next morning!

    Day 7, water crossings right away. 12-14 in the 1st 5 miles. Easy crossings and washed the Chalk road mud off the bikes.
    No pictures but John took a video. I have videos I’ll link to later on YouTube.

    Over the Divide and heading toward Stemple pass and Lincoln.
    Got stopped by a sign blocking a cattle guard. Before we could decide whether to take our chances and blast through, some FS guys came along and advised us we had to turn around.
    Road closed, Nevada creek fire. We backtracked and rode slab to Lincoln.

    Stopped by the FS building just East of Lincoln to check out the Lincoln Grizzly.
    Huge bear! Cool story. Google Lincoln Grizzly for the full history of the bear.

    Next stop was Seely lake. What a zoo. We rode through Big Larch CG to check it out. No thanks, looked like crap and was like being in a small city.
    We ate at the BBQ shack in town then Hank parted ways with us. He was headed home.
    Phil and I continued on the next days route, looking for a campsite along the Jocko River.
    We were on Tribal ground so no camping until we were way past Jocko lakes. I stopped at the first CG I saw, around 7pm. Nice spot right on the river. We were right in the middle of prime Grizzly country.

    The next morning it was gas in Arlee then South toward Hwy 12. Played the waiting game for about 30 minutes then we were off.
    Stopped at the Jack saloon to say goodbye to Phil.
    He went West on 12, I went East.

    Wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone on the ride. I truly hope everyone had a blast.
    Met some new people and hopefully made a few new good friends.

    The End

    Day 3--breakfast in White Sulfur Springs. The ride from Gypsy Lake to White Sulfur Springs was actually quite nice during the early cool morning.

    Then, towards Chinook. We decided to cut out a loop from the orig track, to minimize riding on the tarmac. At the end of the tarmac.

    "And this is how you pee like a horse"

    Going through Utica, MT

    Check out the gas pump

    Anyone want to make a deposit? I think this is Buffalo, MT

    Day 4--towards Lewistown, MT

    [​IMG]

    Saw a Moose in the ravine

    [​IMG]

    She saw me too, and started galloping in my direction, but then headed for tree cover

    [​IMG]

    She then stopped to inspect me

    [​IMG]

    Then took off in the other direction

    [​IMG]

    This is the last I saw of her. I think I might have ruined her morning. But she made mine

    [​IMG]

    Then Judith Peak, views from up above

    This photo sums it all--Somewhere, MT
