Hey, big fella (shut up, Rimmer - and don't get to excited - it's just
a figure of speech. Same for you, Sorni.)

You said, somewhere, that the route for next year's AMB-ID was picked.
I cannot, for the life of me, find any reference to either your
mention or the trail that was picked. All I can remember is "2 miles
uphill, 14 miles downhill, more technical than 2003 AMB-ID." Does
this ring ANY bells at all? [fscking memory - see what happens when
you get old?]

Anyway, could you shed some light on this for a poor soul? And when
you say "more technical", please compare it to some partion of the
Loon Lake Death March for comparison.

Thanks, man - I appreciate it.

Spider

P.S. Next summer, if you need a guy to be up at 0500 to move vehicles
around for shuttling bikes, I'm your guy. No more 0900 (scheduled)
1200 (actual) start times, hmmm?

Twenty mile Creek- Duck lake. It starts pretty high, 6500'?

from what I have heard, the first two miles are "interesting" ;-)

ay yup, On this one the ideal thing would be to have a non rider pick us up
with a truck or two. us at the end of the day as the exit is very close to
town. Or, put the early risers to work, I don't mind.

Any ideas of a nearby town? My map software currently shows this as a
12.5-hour drive (one-way). Yikes!

McCall... the trail head is just about 1.5 miles S of Duck lake, about 17.5
miles from town on the Lick Summit road.

Spider, I had to drive by the trailhead on my way to retrieve Mr Adventure
from his epic ride.

It's in the Idaho Gazetter if you have it. Key locators are Lick Summit, and
Upper Payette Lake.

( so smack me for posting it....)

Penny nailed it. Here's a write-up of a ride Adam and I did early
last summer, approaching it from the other side:

ff%26scoring%3Dd%26selm%3Db9df8744.0209230843.6308 5cc5%2540posting.google.com%26rnum%3D5

Here's a write-up description of sorts on the Twenty-Mile Creek
section which will be all downhill, taken off mtbr:

Trail Info
The trail is undulating with many minor ups and downs. It begins in a
5+/- year old burned section of forest then quickly enters some thick
wooded sections. It continues in and out of burned forest that is
recovering very well from the fire. There are numerous small stream
crossings, some on small bridges, lots of roots, water bars, loose and
fixed rocks that can make this very technical for first-timers and
delightfully exciting for experts. Beginners will need coaching and
basic skills before tackling this one. There are some very short
sections you will want to walk your bike over the rocks but not many.
You will also find a tree across the trail now and then. It can be
very fast through the meadows and smooth sections. There is a surprise
around every corner.

I think I remember a couple walk spots, or at least a few dabs. I
plan to be on a boing-boing for this one, though, for sure.

A riding buddy did the whole thing up to Duck Lake, then on down
20-Mile Creek. He said its a ride to respect and take your time on.
Don't we always??? he he he.

Excellent. McC's about my limit for weekend road trips.

12 1/2 hours? What is that, "Your Father's Oldsmobile" Map software?

Death March? That was a lovely ride.

well.

We sure take our time at lunch.
