    Thanks for the ride report. I’m going to be doing the NVBDR in fall 2018.

    Thanks for your amazing report Dave. I rode the NVBDR two weeks after you did and we had perfect weather. What a GREAT ride!

    Excellent RR I love all the pictures and the daily averages keep them coming. HugeRush and I are planning to ride the NV and ID BDRs this year if Idaho doesn't catch fire again. Its difficult to balance making memories and capturing them and I believe your balance is spot on.

    We are working 7 days a week now from about 0230 to about 1800. It is grueling, so when I need a fix, I go to the Dave library and get re-centered.

    @dave6253 - this was a great trip report, one of the few I could find before we set off on our own NVBDR adventure. We ran it N->S in a 1st gen Tacoma about a month ago, and I'm just now getting the trip report posted up. Thanks again for the great story, and I hope you enjoy ours as well; We too were Alone in the Big Empty!

    Well, I hope that's by choice and you and yours are happy and healthy. The last two years I've been taking the youngest two daughters on their dream camping trips. They are about to leave then nest and I wanted to give them that before they put me in the rear view mirror. But this year, it's time to ride.
