    • Day 84

      Missoula-Condon

      July 25, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

      Wollte früher los, hatte aber Footprint von gestern vergessen und alles fein säuberlich einpacken musste ich auch noch. Kurz nach 8 Uhr war ich auf der Straße. Meine Route ging eigentlich teilweise abseits der Straße entlang. Ich bin aber immer auf der Straße geblieben, um etwas schneller zu sein. Mein Host James aus Rapid City kam mir auf seiner Tour entgegen. Wir haben uns zum Mittag getroffen. War wieder sehr nett. Danach habe ich meinen ersten Waldbrand gesehen. Gestern war noch wesentlich mehr Rauch, heute habe ich nur ganz wenig gerochen.
      Mein heutiger Host Joost kommt aus den Niederlanden und wohnt mit seiner Familie mitten im Wald. Sehr ruhig und schön hier. Es gab Kartoffeln, endlich mal wieder.
      Ich habe sein letztes Kölsch getrunken und wir haben mit einem Kleinkalibergewehr auf Dosen geschossen.

      We had a ‘zero-mile’ day today. We visited Adventure Cycling Association HQ where we revised our route based on the knowledgeable staff advise. We picked up supplies, including a box of goodies from Bonnie.
      And, I got a haircut

      Lolo Pass Adventures

      June 14, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

      We made it up and over Lolo Pass yesterday.
      The territory in eastern Idaho has no cell reception. For about 65 miles, so we were unexpectedly out of range in an area with few campsites and no services; no convenience stores, no restaurants, just about nuthin! We made it through with a pile of days of climbing, so enough about that.
      The Lochsa River is Spectacular! Class 4 rapids are made by streams that sun as they joyfully join the river. We ate on a sandbar one day. We camped 50 feet from the river once. Biking is a great way to see this territory because I can hear crickets and birds on the shore side in one ear, and the river in the other.
      It’s GLORIOUS!
      On our way down from Lolo, we got nailed by an hour long rainstorm, including a half hour of driving hail coming in at about a 30 degree angle from the ground. Whew! Glad to be out of that. Thunder and lightning continued on and off through the night, but we stayed dry in our tents. This morning it’s mixed clouds and blue skies.
      We visited with the other riders last night in Missoula. We will see if we can keep up. Today we resupply. Thank you Bonnie for sending me a package of supplies that I will pick up at Adventure Cycling HQ.
      Once we restock, we’ll head onward.

      Swiftcurrent Pass and Lookout

      September 21, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 17 °C

      Wed 21st Sept. A very chilly start to the day, -2.4°C when we got up, with the thermometer registering the minimum overnight as -3.9°C. However, the sky was blue and clear and sunny so when we left for our hike to the Swiftcurrent Pass it was already -1°C so lots of frost along the way. It was another trail that went up a valley past lots of small lakes, easy walking with not much elevation gain until after the last lake - Bullhead Lake. It was at this lake we stopped to take some photos at the bottom of the lake, then went back on the trail up alongside it. We stopped to admire the lake again, when an Aussie guy pointed to where we had just come from, and along the bottom of the lake shore was a coyote moving rather quickly through, so another new animal to tick of our list, however he was too fast for us and we didn't get a chance to get a photo (I did get a unfocused one which you can just make out, of him slinking behind the trees). So after the lake which was 3.5 miles in (all the maps are in miles and feet which is annoying) we had 3.4 miles with 1928 ft elevation gain up to the Pass. This wasn't to bad, and there was great views down the valley overlooking the lakes as we climbed. Also there was a note at the ranger station saying there had been a lot of bear activity on the trail so we were searching hopefully for a sighting. Once reaching the Pass, there was a track going up to Swiftcurrent lookout on top of a peak - only another 1.3 miles but this was a fairly relentless climb and very open with a cold wind blowing. We got up there, but Doug who is like the energizer bunny and just can keep going and going when climbing up, compared to me who has to stop quite often, is not enjoying climbing up exposed mountain tops he informed me when I finally got up to join him, so we might have to avoid them for a while - with the weather turning we might not have a choice anyway. So once we admired the views and found a sheltered spot for lunch, it was time to head back, still looking for bears but no luck today. Our longest hike so far - stats: 28.02 km, active time 6 hrs 22, elevation gain 1277 m, highest altitude 2585 m. Steps D 40049 / V 44962Read more

      Drummond-Missoula

      July 23, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 35 °C

      Ich bin extra 6:30 Uhr aufgestanden und habe mich beeilt, dass ich mit Christian und Frank aus Hamburg starten kann. Sie hatten heute mehr geplant als ich, aber der Weg war der selbe bis Missoula. Wir mussten wieder auf die Interstate und haben zweimal versucht auf kleinere Straßen auszuweichen, waren aber immer Sackgassen.
      Mit fast 23 km/h Durchschnitt aber sehr gut vorangekommen. Einen kurzen Trial in die Stadt rein und direkt zur „Bayern Brewery“ von meinen zwei letzten Hosts empfohlen bekommen. Ich hatte mir schon im Voraus die Spätzle von der Karte ausgesucht. Leider leider leider gibt es sonntags keine richtige Küche und ich habe nur eine Brezel bekommen. Die beiden anderen hatten eine Bratwurst. Also muss ich morgen wohl nochmal hin.
      Beim Essen haben die beiden entschieden doch hier zu bleiben. Da morgen früh 8 Uhr die „Adventure Cycling Association“ öffnet, die veröffentlichen die meisten Routen und Karten für Bikers hier in Nordamerika.
      Also meine Gastgeberin gefragt ob die beiden auch noch Platz finden könnten. Ethel ist 79 Jahre alt und hat Platz für uns alle in ihrem einfach ausgebauten Keller. Sie ist viel gereist und hat bei über 250 Hosts übernachtet und hat selbst über 350 Leute aufgenommen.
      Sie hat ein paar Blumen von uns bekommen. Ich habe uns allen Nudeln mit Sahnesoße gekocht.

      Pintler Scenic Drive

      September 23, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

      Was jetzt folgt, ist ein wahres Vergnügen. Wir genießen den Pintler Scenic Drive von Anaconda nach Drummond. Er führt vorbei am Silver Lake, George Town Lake und Philipsburg. Immer wieder genießen wir in vollen Zügen diese Einsamkeit in einer phantastischen Umgebung👍👍
      Und immer wieder die schneebedeckten Berge der Rocky Mountains am Horizont👍👍
      Diese gigantischen Weiten und Naturwunder kann man fühlen, aber kaum begreifen. Wir fühlen uns wie im siebten Himmel 👍🥰

    • Day 101

      Garnet Ghost Town, MT

      July 19, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

      Visite étrange d’une ville fantôme qui a été totalement abandonnées dans les années 60. Fondée dans les années 1890, sa croissance et ses abandons ont été rythmés par les découvertes de filons d’or et leur épuisement. La conservation est assez impressionnante. Il s’agit de la ville fantôme la mieux conservée du Montana.

      ————

      Strange visit of a good town totally abandoned in the 60s. Founded in the 1890s, its growth, and decay has been punctuated by discovery of gold-ore and its exhaustion. Preservation status is awesome. It’s the best-preserved ghost town of Montana.

      Day 9-10. Whitefish to Seeley Lake

      July 22, 2023 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 32 °C

      Wild forest fires and all the best plans! So the original plan was to go off grid for three days, Whitefish to Swan Lake, then to Holland Lake then finally out of the mountains at Seeley Lake. However, the wild forest fires had other plans for us. We set off from Whitefish and had a beautiful cycle to Swan lake, climbing up through the Swan mountain range. Stopping at Big Fork on route for some brunch. The temperature reaching over 100 degrees by midday making the afternoon cycle petty difficult and very sweaty. We eventually arrived at Swan lake in time to enjoy the water in the late afternoon evening sunshine. So many families enjoying the lake it was beautiful to see. Heading back to camp to make my dried backpackers dinner of mushroom risotto and eat it by the stream, then fall onto my tent as the sun set. Up early at 5am in the dark, putting down tents and packing bikes with head torches, we wanted to head out before the heat of the day. Good job we did, it turned out that wild fires south of us in Holland Lake were spreading fast and causing evacuations. We had to come off the GDMBR route and our plan to stop in Holland lake was not possible. The only option was to head to the highway and try to cycle south fast, to out run the fires . A trail angel Dale who we met at a local store offered to give us a lift in his truck south ensuring that we would be south of the fires before they closed off the main route 83.
      Arriving is Seeley lake we found a campsite and a laundromat where of course you can also take a shower! Ahead of the fires and ahead of schedule, today could have been very different. The universe certainly looked out for us today. A welcome beer in the local “town” then back to the camp site to reflect on the last couple of days and plan tomorrow (or try to).
