Sorry to hear that.

Maybe next year. I am hopefully planning a trip near Elko NV or Black Rock area next year.

Too funny, I just went out on a trip with a guy from Post Falls. Best to meet up then in Fields? Or you could meet up with us here near Boise if you like.

Probably meet up in Fields. I plan on leaving Wednesday after work and spending the night in Pasco or Hermiston. What time on Thursday are we meeting up?

Have You Steen It?
October 4-7
Time: Boise Group 7:00am. Fields Group 12-1pm.
Meet Place:
(Boise Area Group) Chevron 5644 Buntrock Rd,
Marsing, ID 83639 Hwy 95-55 Junction.
(Other Groups) Fields General Store Motel & Gas 22276
Fields Dr, Fields, OR 97710
Destination: South Central Oregon
Estimated Duration: 4 days 3 nights
Estimated Distance: 850 miles (Boise to Boise)

This trip is 1 1/2 weeks out.

Those who want to convoy to Fields from the Boise area can meet at the Chevron at 5644 Buntrock Rd, Marsing, ID 83639, at the Hwy 95-55 Junction at 7:00am.

Fields, Oregon is our destination and others can meet us there. I am hoping to be there between 12pm and 1pm if all goes well.

So plan on lunch at Fields. I have had their milkshakes years ago so I hope they are the same. I also hear they make a mean burger.

Bring some firewood if you can. Between all of us we should have enough for the whole trip.

Would like to do a Spring/Early Summer bigger trip to include some Oregon folks too. Maybe Goose Lake/New Pine Creek on the CA/OR Border. Something to digest ;)

Sounds good. Just started to peel away the layers in the Black Rock area. Plenty of cool places to see out there for sure.
