Ride Description:

I'm posting a ride I plan to do next weekend May 18th and 19th on Friday night and Saturday. We'll meet 4pm Friday at the Truck Stop at the junction of hi-way 55 and 95 just West of Marsing Id.  We'll plan to leave by 4:30pm and take the Poison Creek Rd past the Poison Creek Stage Station and then take Sands Basin Rd to Rockville. We'll move on to Birch Creek Ranch and camp. Saturday we will take back roads over to Inskip Station/Charbonneau gravesite, we should be headed home by 2pm, but I'm leaving plenty of time in there for flats, or other repairs and Lunch in Jordan Valley if the group wants to.

We won't be breaking any land speed records on this ride, just taking it easy and enjoying the sights, I believe all the roads will be level 2 if dry. Of course in this country, if it rains hard just before our ride, the roads will turn to gumbo. So I will cancel the ride if there are heavy rains on Thursday or Friday... I'm not anxious to rebuild my clutch just now... ;o) 

let me know if you have questions,   thanks ...  silverspurs
