Ride Description:

Anyone is welcome but please keep in mind this is a "stop and smell the wildflowers" adventure so I'm going to be zig sagging around, and stopping at all of the things I've wanted to see in these here parts. I wouldn't mind a cabin rental every 3rd day, but would like to keep costs down if possible. Would like to ride the Lolo Motorway and Magruder too. I'll work on a route rough draft soon.

July 22, Saturday Day 1:
So far the plan is to ride Boise, MEET IN HORSESHOE BEND, Ola, Cambridge, Joseph, Boggans Oasis (best milkshakes ever?), Ride Rattlesnake grade, tent camp at Fields Spring State Park/WA the first day.
----280 miles, 8.5hours travel time (aprox, I expect less)

July 23rd, Sunday Day 2:
Lewiston, Post Falls to pick up a 2017 Checkpoint(2017CC) Falls Park, continue north for another 2017CC Torrelle Falls, then maybe up to Sandpoint for a technology visit at Solar Roadways (heard of them? Their test bed is up and running v3.1)
I've tent camped at Blue Lake RV Park(showers, cold beer) in Napels, ID and its a nice spot, but its near the RR tracks and there could be train traffic late at night. But its cheap. ($10 per tent + $6 per person) Other option is to follow the map and use the alternate route to Roman Nose Lakes to camp.
----260 miles, 5.5hours travel (aprox)

July 24th, Monday Day 3: 1st half 2nd half
Monday, ride up to Porthill, snap a start picture and make our way southbound on the IDBDR. If you would like to join up with the group, be at Porthill Mercantile by 10am. Run over to Copper Creek Falls (2017 Checkpoint). Wind our way up to Lunch Peak Lookout, then down to camp at Porcupine Lake CG.
----192 miles

July 25th, Tuesday Day 4: Clark Fork to Wallace
Breakfast? Clark Fork pantry Fuel: Chevron 4th/Main ClarkFork Visit Fern and Shadow Falls (2017CC). I would like to spend some time in Wallace, see some stuff, visit the Wallace Brewing Company later in the day. I'll be making a reservation at the Stardust hotel, parking seems to be off the road and it has decent reviews.
----110 miles
