Then slow roasted over an open fire for dinner?

When I was single, my idea of camping was to quickly fill a cooler, grab the
box of junk and head out in the old pickup for as far away as I could easily
get. then hoof it in, or not. Why didn't I think to hire a guide service?

I'm .....almost.....there!

Sounds like a great time. I'm trying to figure out what to do with the
family during all this as they don't or aren't old enough yet to do the
riding. I'd leave them at home but I think that would be suicidel........

Hey, don't forget the eating!!! :)

Adam cooked a mess of eggs and bacon for breakfast; all the treats
everyone brought for lunch; I don't remember what we had for dinner but
it involved ice cream. YUM.

Then they don't belong on a mountain bike in the backcountry at all.

Fer sher. Just to rub it in, I'm headed to the Santa Ana
Mountains(sic) in a few minutes to enjoy the 70 degree weather on my
bike.

JD, you picked a prefect time to come back to SoCal. This has been the best
year for clear skies and green hills. I was in Big Santa Ana Canyon this
weekend on the Gabrielino Trail to Sturtevant Falls...lots of water in the
falls and great riding on Winter Creek Trail.

I figured Santa Anita because of the Gabrielino being named. It is
rather nice to wear a sleeveless jersey in February. I did however,
pick up a tick yesterday on my ride. I rode an out and back to the
Divide on a doubletrack/singletrack mix that was rather fun. Funny,
someone in mtbr called that singletrack "technical", whereas I found it
very a-technical on a rigis singlespeed. Some people's kids...

Ack! Lodging won out among the masses. I'm kinda bummed. The trip is
being planned for the first week in September in Sun Valley. I sure
hope there's good riding there to make up for the lack of remoteness.
It won't be a tour company, so any help would be appreciated.

I'm still trying to see if I could finnagle a way to put one over on the
wife and family for the AMB meet.

Ha! I wish she had a boyfriend, then she would leave me the hell alone!
These business trips are starting to cause problems. Her Mother
thinks I am having an affair. Came right out and asked me. I said, yeh
I am. I ride her every chance I get. She didn't get the joke.

Now you have a couple of 'hers' to ride, what the heck is she going to think
now? I guess you could have a ride in every city you go to. Yes, that's
it!

I just learned my kids will already be in school the first week of August.
That might just get me up to Idaho w/o them (and the added responsibility of
entertaining them).

I wish they were older so they could ride. I suppose it will be here soon
enough!

At the rate our weather is going, you'd better hope the forests are not
closed due to extreme fire hazard. I went riding today in short sleeves. 55
degrees.... on Feb 2. Too freaking weird.

And you're complaining?

I found them some lodging in McCall. At least it's a bit more remote
and less expensive than Sun Valley.

dam strait we'll all be complaining when we are in a major drought
situation. The forests will close, the rivers will be too low to run...
there is only one ski area in all of the state of WA that is open right now.

Would you quit saying remote in reference to towns that have cable TV and
espresso? Now, Warren, Yellow Pine... that's remote.
