Never thought it could be an elevated outhouse. Too funny.
Merry Christmas from Frosty Hollow. I may be fairly merry this Christmas as Mrs. Admiral finished another batch.
Merry Christmas back at you and yours!
Sounds good. What makes the shine brown?
You drink all of that and you will be lit up like a Christmas tree!

More of when it was summer and more fun to ride than in winter.
Deadwood Idaho Dual Sport Loop Ride
A couple of rides combined into one video in similar areas of Deadwood Reservoir, ID. Parts of the loop was on the IDBDR and we passed several riders on their adventure. The highlight was riding near but not to Scott Mtn. Lookout, Deadwood Reservoir Dam, and the infamous water crossing near Lowman on the BDR. However, the riders were fun everywhere.
Happy new year
Sneak Peak Smoke in Them Thar Hills TW200
Riding with the fellers in September with wildfire smoke in the air.
A Summer Ride to House Mtn Lookout
Took eeyore (XT350) out on a ride with fabulous views of the ride along the S. Fork Boise River (Arrowrock Reservoir headwaters) and on up to House Mtn. Lookout and back. Intended to ride up to Trinity Lookout but the gate which was supposed to be open today was still closed so we diverted to House Mtn. L.O. No real loss in my book! :)
One Spoon Trail - Attempted
What goes up must come down. Unfortunately, today I had to come back down the same way I went up or should I say part way up. This may be a short trail at 3 miles but it gains a little over 2,000 feet in elevation in that 3 miles. At the place I didn't make the short chute climb with wonderful roots I was about 1/2 way up. Lost my nerve to try again. With a little more experience now having ridden it and watched the instant replay, I think I could make it next time. Just need a little more oomph or momentum. Would help if I was a better rider as well haha.
Had my A$$ puckering just watching!!!!
yeah, when watching it I find myself leaning to the uphill side of the couch. I was pretty nervous not being an accomplished trail rider.
Bear Wallow on Squirrel the XT200
Later that day...kind of the follow-up video to One Spoon Trail video. A consolation prize trail for not making it to the top of One Spoon Trail which junctions with this trail. I did finally find the top of One Spoon Trail where it junctions with this trail. Been looking for a couple of years.
House MTn Lookout looked pretty awesome! Bet it looks pretty different tomorrow morning!
I still want to ride to Trinity Mtn. Lookout. I'm sure all lookouts new and old are more than head high with white stuff.
Scoob & I on the 441 TW Ride in the Woods
This is one of 6 or 7 trails I rode on the day. This was the only "motorcycle only" of those trails. It appears ATV's try to ride this trail only to come to the narrow single track part and having to turn around. Probably lured in as the start of this trail is an old logging road which is off another old logging road converted to an ATV trail. They probably still should know better right?
In these troubled times (snow/winter)
Stay safe and warm!
Admiral; I see quite a few sphincter clincher spots in that video as well. Really makes me want to get out my TY175.
I'm trying to conquer my fear and relax the sphincter (haha) by riding more of these trails with sidehill exposure. I'll never be totally comfortable I can tell you that.
My vertigo would have a field day on those trails. Nope would rule the day.
Ride to Wilson Peak Summer 2020
Ride on some 2-track exploring some of the trails north of Idaho City.
The old Jeep trail was pretty steep getting up to and leaving Wilson Peak but I did'er.
Further on down the hill, I found the old 1880's miner's grave.
Secondary reason to stop here at the miner's grave was a nearby geocache.
On the way back home some threatening storm clouds started moving in. But before I made the mad dash out of the area I found the old RC-4 National Guard Crash site from 1990.
Impact site. (On May 17th, 1990 at about 5:47 PM an RF4C Phantom Jet flown by the Idaho Air National Guard slammed into the mountainside at this spot.
The pilot reported his flight controls were jammed and he was flying inverted with no control. He made the life-saving decision to call for an immediate ejection. The aircraft holds two crewmembers, both individuals ejected safely moments before it hit the ground. They were picked up a short time later, cold and shaken up but otherwise unhurt.
There is a large impact crater where the aircraft hit. All the big and important parts were recovered for the accident investigation but you can still find many small bits and pieces of the aircraft at the crater and below it on the mountain. If you are familiar with this type of aircraft you will be able to identify a lot of them.)
Some small debris which one can find all over the surrounding area. (If you visit the area, please leave the debris).
And there is a nearby geocache that I found for good measure before heading home.
