Moving to the Boise, Idaho area......

I just heard word on a job offer today. So looks like I will be moving to the Boise, ID area soon. I'm looking forward to exploring that area. Looking forward to meeting Gary (Mavic19). Maybe he can show me around, and maybe he will even include me on some of those big camping trip/rides of his....

I love Idaho ... very conservative thinkers there ['cept Boise the more liberal part of the state / collage town and capitol ]... as to hunting and fishing some of the best !!!!
as far as trails thousands X many of miles of trails to enjoy and a very good trail marking system also .. go to the local forest service offices [by area] and get a trail map free for that local area ... I have many maps from all over the state

in my old area Coeur d'Alene alone I have thousands of trail miles in and most / much on a different trail each time .. my hunting buddy is a life long resident of a little town a half hour east of my old place and we put on +/- 5K miles in his Rhino before I got my A/C and I have 5K + miles on it now most in that area +a few long trips into central Idaho back country.

check out the Magruder trail [central Idaho ] a very cool ride and very near world class river fishing
