Nothing, a 100 miles less and more of a main path route. That bit of road your taking down from Northport has a two or three mile stretch of gravel on it. And just a bit of caution, it is Forest rat infested most of the way to Tonasket.
Remember half the fun is getting there, and the other half is getting back!

Yes, more of a main route. Although that is a pretty stretch on the west side.

Any locals have feedback on the following routing: Boise north on 55 through McCall, continuing on 95 to Sandpoint, ID. Is a guy dreaming on averaging 50 mph (moving average) on that stretch of road? Thanks for any comments from those who have ridden that route. I've always gone up the Salmon River and have yet to see that part of ID.

+1, Gunny; Richard is right CAJW, except the odds are really good those PNW Mooks are probably stoned, drunk and whacked out of their gourds. Good luck with that!

That is a very nice ride except for the traffic congestion in Boise and Coeur d' Alene. Once you get past the stoplights in those areas, you should be able to have a moving average of 50-55 mph.

Gracias'! That's what I had hoped would be possible. I put down Boise as a landmark and not necessarily our overnight stop. We'll probably find a place on the outskirts of that area with easy access to 55 and head north from there. Thanks.
