Wanna go again next week....

 The Smith River corridor is such a rad place.  

Rock Creek beach camp.  

 This pic says it all.  

 Evening magic.  

 Rob Robinson day in full effect.  

 Making the river crowded!  

 Shading up.

It starts with a permit.....

 Hard to believe, but it had been three summers since we had secured a permit for the Smith River up in Montana.  What starts out as a bunch of good buds applying for a river permit in January, turns into what you see in this and other blog posts to come.  Utter awesomeness.  

Packing up and getting ready to head north.  

 Always a mandatory dinner and beverage stop in WSS.  

 Love this lil town.  

 And boom!  Paradise for 5 days.  

 We maxed out our permit this year at 15 guys and 7 boats.  It was as always, truly amazing.

Passing through

 Some buds from New Zealand came through the other day on a trip up to the top of Alaska on their motos.  To say I wish I could have jumped on the trip with them would be an understatement!

Work wanderings

 Another quick work trip blast to Alabama last week.  Always amazed at how cool the whole JH Airport experience is.  

 and Cathy's garden had bloomed!

During and after....

 Dash and I built a horseshoe pit last weekend.  Well, a shoe pit for me, a fun pit for Dash.  

 Snack break.  

 Starting the other side.

 Weekends have been filled with outdoor projects with Dash building things.  

Last weekend we made a horse shoe pit.  

It was  just high grass.  

 And so it begins.  

You can never be too safe.  Way to have your helmet on Dash.

My bud Tucker came by the other day after snagging hundreds of dollars worth of Morel mushrooms in the hills near us.  These things come in thick post fires and are a delicacy.

 Pretty amazing what you can accomplish in a half day of work with the help of a two year old!  Dash and I built a new path last weekend.  



 And after.

The best....

 Life gets too hectic sometimes I tell ya.  It had been all together too long since I had been out with the moto crew tearing it up in the hills.  
That all changed yesterday over in Swan Valley, ID.  

Tucker, about ready to lose his bike in a no fall zone.  

 Evening goodness.  

The sport.....the passion.

The best.....

 Someday Dash......., you realize how amazingly cool and unique this hike was!  

Tramping around in the hills with his grandparents.  

 Dash wasn't taking no for an answer on the summit (not in the backpack) push.
