    Oooooh

    Sounds fun, I am going to try to work this out since I've never ridden out that way yet, but have been wanting to..9am would work better for me if I can go.

    Do I need to have a kevlar vest or helmet to stop all the stray buckshot out there?

    I rode out there from 5-6:30pm yesterday and suprisingly I heard ZERO gunshots. Lot of ATV/dirt bike noise though, but they were pretty far away. Saw an older Jeep and Toyota driving around on the roads. Good clumps of horse poop. Frozen dirt. Bad RP3 shock.

    And if you guys are out there Saturday...can you tell me if those wild horses that I've seen the past couple of weekends are indeed "wild"? They sure as hell looked well groomed to be wild. There were about a dozen of them in that area where the singletrack takes off from the parking lot that is the first one on your left as soon as the road turns to dirt. It's the singletrack that parallels the dirt road away from the feedlot.

    but definatly not native and are a product of people being unable to care for there horses during the great depression so they let them loose on public lands. Remeber the spanish orginally brought the horse to america.

    From BLM FAQ site:

    Where did wild horses come from?
    The animals ranging through the West are considered mixtures of Spanish mustangs that escaped from early explorers and missions, along with Indian ponies and domestic horses that have strayed or were abandoned by their owners. Only one generation is needed to change a domestic breed to a wild one.

    Wild horses couldn't drag me out of an igloo made out of PBR cans!

    Oh yeah, Owyhees at 9 Saturday sounds like fun.

    Maybe I wasn't clear enough....

    I know that there are wild horses out there. Ran into a number of them last winter. But the ones I have seen the past couple of weekends look very domesticated and nice...like metrosexual horses. They look very well taken care of...they ain't mangy looking. Kinda like the ones you would see at a rodeo or horse race.

    RE: blow and suck on the hydration tube

    Well crap...I never thought of that. Uhhh not that I'm good at blowing and sucking......

    They looked fine to me every time I've seen them. They only look mangy when people leave 'em in corrals and neglect them.

    9am it is

    9 works best for me. Nels, what's that park and ride we meet at, 15th and Bannock? I'll be there at 8am.

    If you suck at blowing and sucking just put the hose and bite valve inside your jersey.

    The wild horses are well groomed they take good care of themselves. But if you look close some have a lot of scars.

    I'm an almost definite. I'm out of town right now, but it I'm back in town in time (which I should be) I'm in.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    We will park at the first parking lot on the right after you pass the feed lot.

    Would be a lot of fun I am sure. About how long/many miles is this ride and will the kevlar jacket breathe well?

    My pretty bike will be incognito for a couple of weeks. Ian and the gang at Reed's is sending back my RP3 to Fox.

    So it's running, skate skiing, road/Greenbelt, and SS'ing for me!!!

    From the perspective of one who has ridden the Owyhees on a fully rigid singlespeed more than once, I can attest to the fact that gears and suspension, while not absolutely necessary, are nice to have in the Owyhees!

    frozen horse hoves for about a half mile, might want to check to make sure you have all your teeth after that rattle fest. Skip the rigid or you will suffer and embrace technology.
