    I'm pretty sure we won't see your plates from up here, but welcome to Idaho. Have a safe trip.

    Well, I made it, obviously.

    I've been a little busy so I haven't gotten around to posting.

    But, I am here. What now?

    Throw some gas in your rig and start exploring. Welcome to Idaho!

    No atv as of right now. I've got a four wheel drive and pete and repeat.

    I'm still trying to learn where I can and can't go. I've picked up some pamphlets from the state dnr as well as been on their website quite a bit. We tried going hiking over there at Tex Creek WMA last week but the roads were pretty messy and I didn't feel like getting stuck and having no one to call.

    Anyone in the Idaho Fall's area got time to show a southerner the ropes around here?

    Realistically many of the Mt trails wont dry up till June; your not going to gret abovre 9000 feet for over a month

    The biggest reason for an ATV other than some great trail access is you wont beat up your truck as much
    Right now the deserts and low ground is accessable lots to explore within 30 minutes

    Im from Minnesota,. flat gound, lots of lakes. Please realize people die from lots of simple mistakes in the mountians

    Yea, I understand that. I've been taking my time, being extra cautious about where I go and how far I explore. It's hard to look at a mountain in the distance and not wonder what it looks like from the top though.

    Go west. Big Butte, Birch creek, Little Lost, big desert, southern desert south west of American Falls & Aberdeen all the lower stuff has little to no snow. Dry roads, pretty good cell service. I have seen a few rock chucks out here & there. Birch creek is open to fishing year round (family fishing stream). Lots of horn shed hunting on the lower benches.
