I am looking to do the Boise Front again. This coming Thursday the weather forecast looks great. I want to find the Daggett Creek trail as I have not ridden it in about 15 years. This should be another mello ride with stops for photos. I welcome anyone who would like to go along. Time to be determined. Ron 859-7909

I'll give this some thought Ron if you think this will not be too "challenging." Thursday could work for me I think. I will give you a call.

Hi Boise Front Riders;



Our Oregon friend Stubby is coming over for this ride. He and I are planning on leaving from my home at 10:00am and riding across town to 8th St.; then heading to the hills from there. The rest of you give me a call and we can arrange to hook up on the way.

Hi All;



I agree that a good time was had by all. We all left from the West Boise Bench area in front of my house at about 10:00am.
We stopped and gas up going through town and off to 8th St. this little gang went. We progressed up to the Ridge Road and had a strong wind to keep the dust down. We headed North to the Crooked Summit trail and down the mountain we went. I must inject here that despite Truelight's assertions that he lacked experience on trails, I think he was just sand bagging us cause he road like he was an old hand at this back country stuff.

We headed north on the Clear-creek road (I had not been on it in 20 years) I was searching for the bottom end of Daggett Creek Trail. It has completely desovled and could not be found. The first thing we found that completely impeded our adventure was a very large tree totally across and blocking the road. Now this tree would be fire wood for a whole season. Seeing no way around it, we just went through it as the main beam was off the road about 6 1/2 feet and there were conveniently spaced branches that we could weave our bikes between. ( I believe Truelight has a video of this) So off we went again. We came upon 2 volunteer firemen from the Clear-creek rural fire station. They told us of the terrific micro-burst storm that had hit 2 days ago and knocked power out in the entire area. We inquired about the Kennedy Sawmill Trail and they told us that it has totally washed out a couple of years ago.

We then asked about hooking up to the Bogus Basin Ridge Road. They gave very succinct directions which proved to be very accurate. We turned on Grimes Creek and went up to The North Fork of Pine Creek which brought us right up to the ridge road. Piece of cake. We headed south and found another down tree. I thought we should just lift the bikes over but Dan found another way around. We dropped of the road, went around the top of the tree and blasted back up on the road through a narrow slot through the trees. This is where Truelight let the cat out of the bag a little more as I think he made the blast with a little more ease that any of the rest of us. I am just going to have to find some trails with a little more challenge to keep his interest.

From here it was just any easy ride down Bogus Basin Road; off to our separate abodes went. No wrecks, no regrets and as Dan has already stated, a good time was had by all and little if any need for Tylenon.

See Rick, you can trailride. I'll agree with Ron, you must be sandbagging the whole trail riding thing! But I can relate! I was smiling the whole time watching you guys going around the tree. Wish I could have been there, boo hoo!Glad you could make another ride Stubby. Looks like it was worth the ride over from Union.

It's nice to go riding with someone who knows the territory as Ron did. I couldn't write a ride report that would explain in much detail where we went, cuz I really don't know the backroads and trails anything like he does so I was happy to follow along and enjoy the ride. And that I did. I was a bit apprehensive at first having heard tales of the "adventures" these guys had gone on previously, but I have to say though I was challenged a few times, I kept the rubber side down the entire trip and didn't have to lag too far behind. Of course I don't think I'll ever be able to ride like Ron. He's been riding since...well...I think he must've jumped off his tricycle and onto a a motorcycle as a wee lad. All the guys were great riding partners and I had a great time. Here's some more photos...



I had to "gear-up" of course this morning before setting out and that meant putting on my "TDub Club" shirt. (You have seen the survey to decide if we should go for a second round of orders yes? Don't worry... the shirt will look better on you than on this guy
)







The gang stops for a little roadside consultation...







My three amigos - L-R Stubby, Boise Ron, A-1 Dan







Did I mention the T-Dub Club shirts?







What's that funny yellow licence plate? Stubby came over from Oregon to join us.







Here's another video. Sometimes you can't go over a fallen tree, or around it. You don't want to have to turn back. So whatdaya do....??? Ron knows !! (and I used to know how to embed a YouTube video, but it's not working for me so I guess you'll have to click the link below.

Thanks again guys! This was a great ride!



I made one more stop on the way home to Meridian. I'd never been to the Idaho Veterans Cemetary and it was on the way home so I turned up the road and stopped for a photo...

Awesome times shared there team. Photos make me wonder if the majority of TW runners are gray haired and wear glasses? I too resemble that remark!

I like "through the tree".
