I think I've narrowed down my July4 ride to Idaho (with a splash of OR and MT). ..Originally was going to do an OR/WA loop, but I think this is a better fit.
[SIZE=12pt]I'd really appreciate some advice, mentoring and coaching on roads.
*most* of these I've been on before, but there are some new roads and areas to me. Primarily, I'm looking for little known roads with great POI's and/or scenery also looking for better routing options. Dirt is OK. Previous Idaho riding has been kinda whirlwind adventures and while hit a lot of roads, never took the time to stay in obscure towns etc. Seemed I always ended up in Boise or near.
Below is my initial rough draft of map/routing. Please let me know what suggestions you have to make it better.

A few comments:
Being this will be about a 5day/(4 or 5 night) run over the fourth of july weekend:
-I've got time to explore wider areas, but also want to have time to enjoy local flavor -if you know what I mean
-Being a lover of the USA, I'd love to visit/stay in some small towns that my be sharing my patriatism over our Independence Day holiday. Oh, plan on moteling but will bring basic dry camp gear to leave options open.
-I'd like to avoid crazy holiday traffic and concerned some of these roads might be jacked up with vacationers???
-Leaving Reno Wednesday ...returning sunday(ish)
Any help/advice very much appreciated. I'd hope to have my likely route done in the next days so that I can start researching some of the areas that I'll be riding through for POI's, history and odd factoids.
thanks in advance ....renojohn [/SIZE]
