Idaho Backcountry Adventure Ride

with 3 Comments

Monday, Day 5 – Mountain Home, ID to Henderson, NV

We had a quick breakfast at Wingers next door. Brian displays some rare Smuckers jelly.

Such a sad sight, bikes on a trailer and heading home. Our adventure was over.

We stopped in Twin Falls to check out the Perrine Bridge and Shoshone Falls.

Shoshone Falls

The falls were impressive. Standing at 212 feet tall, they are 45 feet taller than Niagara Falls!

Do more with less! That is my motto lately. I love getting outdoors and exploring new places, usually on my KTM motorcycle. My wife, Anna, and I recently bought and built out a Sprinter van to do more of the things we love. Traveling and seeing new places is always at the top of our to-do list.

    I want a GPS lesson.. Lol one thing I’ve never been good at. What GPS were you using?

    Been looking to build an XR to do some adventure riding. Where is next years trip?

      I was using a Garmin 62S. It’s very rugged and easy to follow a track. The most time consuming part is putting together a track from scratch. It’s not hard to do, but it takes a little time especially if you’re planning on going somewhere you have never been to. I’m actually going to be putting together an informative guide on how to build a GPS track and plan a trip like this using Google Earth, Google Maps, Garmin Basecamp, and other easy to use software.

      Next trip…good question! It’s been on my mind as soon as we were driving home. I’ve already been thinking alot about that. I’d love to get up into Oregon and Washington, but I feel there are more parts of Colorado that I want to explore first.
