Idarex Posted June 24, 2020 Share Posted June 24, 2020 This weekend I did 773 miles, 500+ miles on dirt roads. I now have 2025 miles on the T7. I only had a plan for day 1. Day 2 and 3 were going to be take it as it came. The plan was to explore routes I’ve never taken/seen. Friday: First leg, Poky to Jarbidge NV. From Jarbidge travel all dirt to Featherville. This meant crossing the Inside Desert and Bruneau Desert to Glenns Ferry. I crossed the Bruneau canyon at Clover Crossing. Only sighted one person on the desert crossing, an Airforce jet over the Bruneau canyon. I crossed the Snake River outside Hemmet. Took a break at the Y-Not Winery (formerly Carmella) in Glenn’s Ferry. Had a Shandy and a Hummus platter at the bar. I took Kings Hill and Barret Mountain Rd to Anderson Ranch Dam then up to Featherville where I spent the night. Saturday: I decided to leave my pack in Featherville and do a loop into Boise and back. I traveled the North side of Anderson Res and followed the South Fork of the Boise River into Boise. This is an epic ride. The dirt road is beginner but the scenery is expert level. This is a must do if any of you Hooligans are in the area. I met my Brother in Law at Boise Fry Company/Bier Thirty and had a wonderful Hazy Pale Ale. On the return trip I did the north side of Lucky Peak Res and Arrowrock Res. I followed the Middle Fork of the Boise River to about 20 miles from Atlanta and crossed over through Rocky Bar to Featherville. On this day I saw lots of people drifting rafting rounding up cattle and camping. Sunday: I got the kickstand up at 9 am for the trip home carrying my full camp again. I rode pavement from Featherville to Carey ID. At Carey I decided to cross the lava fields/desert of the Craters of the Moon Monument to American Falls. This is a remote lava field desert and I saw zero people when I crossed it. I crossed the Snake at American Falls and got home in time to have a Margarita on the deck. I have not unpacked and cleaned my gear yet. The T7 was the perfect ride for this trip. The T7 is giving me access to a lot of country I have never seen before. 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
