    2 minutes per car x 120 cars divided by two booths = 2 hour wait

    Good reason to get up early and hit the entrance before the mob.

    Nice RR, I live in BC and spend a lot of time in your area, enjoyed seeing your pics of places I have been, like you said stop and take the time I need to learn that. If you're ever up north in BC you are welcome to PM me I am sure we can find some entertaining rides for that big Katoom

    Just read this from the start, it's been worth not sleeping for! The enthusiasm you two have, and the fact you manage to convey it so genuinely through this RR, is awesome. Thanks for sharing.

    Hey! Great RR!! Ferry, Stevens, Pend Orielle, Okanagan, and Asotin Counties are my playground; Not to mention all of north Idaho and west Montana. The Palouse has to be reserved for residents of Eastern WA, however...;-)

    We are planning a Glacier/Yellowstone/Tetons trip next early Sept including many of the roads your rode on the BOM https://trips.furkot.com/board/fvkPNL. My wife and I started 2up ADV-ing (?) on my Vstrom a few years back, but she's now moved on to a nice little CB500X of her own (and I've moved up to a nice little Africa Twin of my own). Sharing this passion of mine with my best friend and partner has been such a thrill! I don't really even like riding solo anymore, even if that means I end up on more paved twistys than BDRs. Seeing her take up this sport on her own has been amazing. Now she's the one pouring over Butler maps! What a dream. Hope we can meet up someday. I might have a few hidden Inland NW gems to share...

    Sounds good!! Glad you liked the RR. I checked out your route you are proposing and will review it more tomorrow. Think I can help after last years BOM ride. Will definately keep in touch for a meet up! Cheers! ERIC

    And I’m back!! Wuuuhoooo!! We’re gonna finish this BOM yes we are!! Ok....so the next segment was from Big Springs to Elkhorn hotsprings! Schwing!!! Why that? Cause we were going to be riding through the GRAVELLY MOUNTAIN range! When I was looking at past BOM pictures of this section I couldnt believe what I saw. Just overwhelming vast rolling hills and roads that seemed endless! Yeah well we got our money’s worth and then some!! More on the “then some” in a bit. Ok here we go!
