I hope I'll have time soon. I haven't been out in weeks myself to be honest.

I want to try the Owyhee Backcountry byway soon, like probably next weekend. As soon as have a date, I'll post up.
Do you know if it's clear all the way yet?

TW got info from Owyhee Co. that the road is open (correct me if I'm wrong Don). There are a lot of dirtbike reports coming in from north of us that the trails are clear so I'm thinking this road should be also since it's further south and most of the higher elevation is facing south. Who knows, maybe this weekend is too ambitious, still haven't cleared the date yet anyway.

Silver City is pretty cool and I've heard Miner's Grave is a decent place but I've never been there.

Right, I might try a little bit of it Sunday if my luck is right. If you're out there you might see a stock LJ stuck in the mud .

Lol of course you show up with that haha. Yeah I should have her fixed up in the a.m. I will be adding a gallon of coolant to my trail supplies though

Part of the fun of owning a 20 year old jeep.

Had a good time today though. That was a nice drive.

You could go up to Custer by Stanley, lots of back country dirt roads to take and a way cool ghost town that has been restored.( better than silver city because you can walk through the houses.

Miner's Grave is a nice little drive. I didn't actually find the grave because of my buddies cruddy GPS, but we were very close. I'm going to head up there again this summer. It's probably nice right now.

Owhee Upland Byway run

I'm going to take a stab at this road on Sunday, May 4th. We'll probably be stopping at Dan's Ferry at about 10:00 am. First time for us on this road, hopefully the snow will be gone and most of the mud dry. Plan on a nice day, picnic and good scenery.

I'm so game for this! About how long will the run take. I have a friend wanting to but he has to be back in Boise by 8pm.

My phone number is 761-9886. Give me jingle if that's easier.

Cheers
