Trail 1516 maintenance was completed!
Larry May
Published on: 7/25/2021
Thanks to Larry Southard, Ted Trude, Joe and Glenda Winters, Steve Powers, and myself, we got the brush cut on trail 1516. It is now in very good shape.

We put in three hard days with the six of us broke up in two crews, separated a good distance apart. Had four Hedge Trimmers going full time, one pole saw most of the time, a fifth Hedge Trimmer and Chain Saw a few times.

We had no problems with the fires and very little smoke at the campsite, some days totally clear. The temperature was not to hot and it got down to the mid 40’s in the early mornings. The river road was open all the time. All in all, the weather was great!

Idaho recreation council
Dennis Falconer
Published on: 4/8/2021
The Idaho Senate held a late session in to the evening last night. The result was overwhelming success for two of our initiatives. H86, which simplifies the sticker and registration process through IDPR, passed 35-0. It has now passed both chambers without a single no vote. H129, which allows expanded use of OHVs on public roads (including numbered state highways), passed 32-2. It has now passed both chambers, receiving only 2 no votes (in the Senate; nobody opposed in the House). I fully expect Governor Little will sign both bills inasmuch as they received such tremendous Legislative support. Thank you to each of you for the support you provided to ISATVA and IRC as we moved these bills forward on your behalf.
Best wishes,
David P. Claiborne, President

Backcountry
Dennis Falconer
Published on: 12/27/2020
Travel Advisory!!!!
As a result of the recent snowfall, the Backcountry is now closed to wheeled vehicles. Barricades have been put up at the local trailheads, to include Fernan Saddel, Bunco Trailhead and 4th of July Trailhead. The trails are not only open to tracked vehicles. Hayden creek at the intersection of FS Road 206 and FS Road 437 is also closed to wheeled vehicles, however barricades have yet to be placed at that location.
It is also important to know that all the remaining roads in the backcountry are impassable by vehicles. If someone does decide to venture out into the backcountry you should make sure to let someone know where you are going and when you plan to return. Pack plenty of extra food and water and dry clothing. A rescue could take several hours so it is important to be prepared.

The Low-Light-Limbo night ride was a success....kind of.
Joe Sh
Published on: 8/16/2020
We started off with 17 machines. 4 miles in we lost 6 of them to mechanical issues. At Gold Creek Lodge 3 of those returned and one straggler joined the group. An hour or so after dinner we were down 4 more due to time constraints and driver choice to take a different route. The remaining 10 of us (my mathmatacising ain't so good or my memory is fading...probably both) completed the trip without any issues while occasionally stopping to marvel at the stars and give out the remaining prizes for trivia and scavenger hunt items. Two 5 point bucks, a moose, a skunk, multiple bats and more rabbits and field mice than could be counted were spotted throughout the trip...it pays to lead. :)
Thanks to all who attended and a huge thank you to Kaleb and Suzanne Bleeker for picking up cones for us.

It would appear people are reporting WA license plates found in ID recreation areas and law enforcement is taking action....don't shoot the messenger.

A number of folks have asked me if the ride this Saturday will be cancelled due to weather. At this time I have had no word from the Ride Leader that implies that will happen. In short...It's on like Donkey Kong!!! Dress warm and bring your cameras for the the Fall colors.
