    Russ Rally Northwest - Elk City Idaho

    I'll take the lead on this and hope I'm not offending anyone by doing so. Going with Tinman Tim's suggested location, Elk City, Idaho not to be confused with Elk River, Idaho, which is further north. I'll use this as my main page for general information and keep it updated during the planning process.

    I'm also gonna make this ATV/UTV friendly, so my wife can come along. Keep that in mind if you have a non-motorcyclist who'd like to come too.

    Updated: 23 July 2014

    1. Who is coming? And... a. for sure b. maybe c. alone or with someone else i.e. wife?

    2. Of all who are coming, is anyone bringing an ATV/UTV?

    My wife is coming, and rides an ATV. If no one else is riding an ATV/UTV, then we may not bring it. Reason, possible alternate ride while the TW folks are out riding.

    I'm gonna take my camper up yonder, so I'll start looking for a group campground area near Elk City. We don't have to be right in town. There is some lodging in town, but I'll have to check availability. Gas, grocery, & food are available in town. It's small here so don't expect big city amenities. Grangeville is the next largest town and is a little over 50 miles by paved highway.

    According to my mapping software it's only 989 miles from Kingman, Arizona to Elk City Idaho......count me in.......I too have a little camper, and will bring momma and the dogs. We might need some sort of camp security so the Yorkies will likely come in handy if we are in bear country.......alarm and bait all at the same time.

    I will be there, if I can. Elk City is a fun ride from the Montana side. Go to Darby and ask.

    I've done the Magruder Corridor Road. I'd put this on the list to ride on the E.City RR, but we'd need a month of vacation time

    Hope you can make it. Suggested riding area's are welcome. hint hint. Without doing my homework, I was thinking the Elk City Stage Road, or a ride to Dixie/Mackay Bar, or even head in the O'Hara/Falls Point direction possibly. To many places to ride is such a short time.
