Hey,

I'm also in Boise. I'm a weekend warrior / long three day weekend guy. I'm always looking for new guys to connect with to do some weekend / 24 hr hikes.

Just wanted to throw my name out there as well, I'm getting short on time this summer but I will be watching this Post regularly now. BTW just got back from a 30 miler yesterday. We hiked from Landmark to Lola Creek Campground following the Main Fork of the Salmon most of the way. Great Trip.

I am in Mt Home but grew up in Boise. I have a few plans for this summer up not totally set for every trip this year. And I am fairly flexible with my schedule.

Awesome to see some more folks available for trips! Brian and I are looking to get out on July 8th, and come back on the 12th. Anyone available, PM us and lets go! We were looking to go into the Sawtooths, or anywhere else that sounded good!

Dang, I think I am taking the family camping up at Sage hen the 8 and 9th and then have a maybe trip for 1-2 nights on the 13, 14 or 15th up above McCall. That's just a short hike into a lake or two for some fishing, guy from Indiana might be coming but any and all are welcome on that trip. Just have to get him to give me a solid date as to when he would be here for sure.

idaho 24 hr trip on 07/16/2010 16:35:14 MDT Print View

Hey, wanted to throw this out... is there anyone interested in doing a 24 hour trip, this Sun (18th)& Mon (19th) to a lake in the Sawtooths for some ice out fishing. This is an adventuresome trip, pretty straight forward, and I'll share a secret lake with big fish... let me know asap!

My plan is to leave after church Sun, drive up, hike in, fish the evening, sleep, fish the morning, and hike out and be back by the same time we left the valley... hence, a 24hr trip...

let me know asap with a pm
Steve

Glad to see others are getting out with ultralight gear in the Sawtooths. When I first starting going lightweight last year I thought that UL gear was only for the AT thru-hikers.

Keep me in the loop on outings. I am pretty booked for most of the summer already but I will probably be open for at least one or two trips in September or early October. A friend and I will be hiking from Hell Roaring Lake to Grandjean via Cramer and Baron lakes in late August. Should be an epic hike.

Boise UL'ers update on 07/22/2010 18:20:52 MDT Print View

Well, Brian and I have now done two trips; one 3 day hike where we covered about 39 miles before running out of trail, and our first 24 hr trip, which was in the Sawtooths. Both were a blast, and we really enjoyed talking about gear, trying out techniques, and just plain enjoying how easily it is to move in the mountains with light loads!
Here's hoping that we can get more folks to join us and have some really epic trips this season!
early season trout
Be sure and drop me a pm as I'm in construction, and my schedule is always changing. I'm always trying to get out! Here are a couple of pics from our 24hr trip, and a fish from the high lake high lakes still have snow

Idaho trip scheduled on 07/28/2010 15:52:03 MDT Print View

We are planning another trip, and are hoping some other Idahoans would be able to make it. Brian and I are thinking of doing a multi day, possibly up to 6 days long, into the Sawtooths, or White Clouds. We are looking at possibly Aug 12-18.
If you are interested in joining in, let us know! There is also the possibility of just coming along for part of the days mentioned as well.
Thanks!

Hey Steve and all Idaho area on 08/29/2010 09:50:35 MDT Print View

I have a trip coming up that has been in the works for the past year. I have a few guys coming in from PA and OK to do the Toxaway/Alice lake loop starting on the 9th. We are going to meet up on the 8th for a meet and meat and greet then hike the loop over 4 days. It is going to be a few crazy hammock guys but any one and every one is welcome. Right now the group looks like just 4 of us so still small enough to get to know folks and hang out. I am planning to fish most of the lakes and if time allows may climb Snowyside. We are going to be keeping the daily mileage down as the elevation we have here will be a big change for the out of state guys. Give me a holler if anyone is interested in joining us.
