    The gang finally got together after a nearly ride-less summer due to other obligations and a wicked fire season. Rode four days in Northern Nevada, then a three day loop around Stanley ID in the Sawtooth and Salmon River Mountains. I'll detail each day, but here's a preview.

    As you can see, this will be a pretty picture intense thread, but will also have quite a bit of video too. Nearly 400 gb of footage was captured! Following is a teaser video.

    (Video 2:52 - with music)


    I'll post more as I get pics and video together.

    I have gps tracks for the planned route in ID, though we deviated from that some. The planned routes in NV were totally not followed, but I’ll try to recreate them from my inReach track.

    Amazing!
    From the video:
    1. I saw you coming up to a couple of Riders waiting for you. That means you were off exploring on your own. Some things never change.
    2. I saw you maybe trying to pass another rider and then you ran into a bush and went down. That is new.
    Keep posting Brother.:clap

    Wrong and wrong.

    1. I was taking pictures, generally of the other riders, which IS the norm even when I ride with you. I mostly only go exploring when I ride with Vicki.

    2. Was filming Joseph and my rear tire tried to pass the front in the mud. Not that I won’t pass another rider, but I will try to do so on a clean straightaway. And for the record, Joseph took quite a bit of that footage. But it was me that spun out there.

    But we’re getting a little ahead of ourselves…

    Sorry for the delay. I'm working on videos for this trip, day by day. But we're going to have a "premier night" as a group once they are done. I'll be publishing pictures and videos as soon as that occurs.
