Check-Ins for this Challenge Point

 Nice cold sunny spring ride. From Nampa visited Map Rock, Doyle Cabin, Titan, and Bruneau.

17APR2020 - It was a bright and chilly day...
 
The Stage Stop temp sign registered a brisk 38degrees as BillBart, Cuprum Hermit, and I rode past at 8:20 am heading toward Simco Road to pick up our next two Challenge sites: 03-Titan Missile Base and 04-Bruneau Canyon Overlook. From the Simco exit, we headed southeast following back roads to the CJ Strike reservoir. The parking lot was almost overflowing with pickups and small boat trailers – fishing is apparently a major “social distancing” activity around there.
 
The two big KTMs and my GS made short work of the easy pavement and graded dirt road that get you out to the Missile Base, where toxic substances are now stored deep underground. We got our pictures, and after a minor false start, headed east on Missile Base Road (all the roads out there are called Missile base Road) which was well-maintained gravel and motored toward our next location for the day – the Bruneau Canyon Overlook.

 What a neat area to check out.  I was a little disapointed as what I saw but the real excitement later came with I went on to check it out a little more.   Found some good web info on it.

 Nice easy trip out to the site.  Not much to look at but the history is interesting.  I had the opportunity to tour the inside of the Titan 1 site near the Stage Stop.  The owner doesn't welcome visitors so please don't try to visit the Stage Stop Titan 1 site.

Nice morning for a ride.  I was glad it was still spring and cool.
