On the Eighth Day: A Solo Idaho BDR Adventure

Imagine a place with endless dirt roads piercing though some of the least populated regions in the lower 48 states. 

A place where Indians and outlaws once roamed. A place with no cities, but rather, outposts dotting a lonesome trail that starts in Canada and ends in the Nevada desert. 

Travel to a land that provides an opportunity to ride through the largest contiguous Wilderness in the lower 48 states. 

A land with ghost towns, abandoned homesteads and mines. 

A place where one can truly still get lost I found this all and more in Idaho. While the riding is not particularly challenging, unless remoteness scares you, the roads however, well… they are stupendous and seem to go on and on through a backbone of endless mountains. 

For me, this is my thing. A chance to ride solo, taste history and enjoy splendid scenery. Although I only managed to ride about half of the Back Country Discover Route, it only whetted my appetite to return. 

Hang on tight and enjoy the ride. ~GrizzLee
