So true! There are lots of great places in the world, Idaho is definitely one of them.

We're in eastern Idaho, right next to Yellowstone and Teton national parks, this is snow country for sure.  But not all of Idaho gets such heavy winter. Diverse weather around the state for sure.  That's Sheep Falls on the Fall River, I've posted pics from there before, one of my favorite places.

Since Terry and I had so much fun yesterday wheeling his property, we decided to take a look at my dad's timber with the leaves down as suggested earlier in this thread:

https://www.thecj2apage.com/forums/life-is-good_topic11129_post385422.html#385422









There are also hill climbs of various degree, mild, moderate, difficult, impossible. The neighbors adjoining woods have some very long steep climbs. I see him running around on a sxs so maybe he would be up to sharing some trails. IDK. Terry seems to think it would be a lot of work to clean up.

I just watched your video. Your place doesn't look that bad. Some pretty good potential there. A chainsaw and a winch would get things going. Wish I loved closer.

"Impossible"??  I find that hard to believe.  (not a challenge, I just can't believe you'd say that!)  Big smile

I.e. 90 degree slope.... or lack of slope.

Okay, now I have to find out where to find one of those FCs!  I'll probably never have the real thing, so I'll take what I can get...  Big smile

Good times on the north 40 today. The temperatures have been warmer so the ground is getting really soft.   I spent the day chasing after Dylan:











They sure grow up fast don’t they.

FYI, these flattys don’t go anywhere:

Aspen report:



“Starwood”, the most famous Rocky Mountain aspen in southern Illinois is looking good this spring. For perspective, my wife is 5’ 7” tall. Life Is Good!

Spent the day at Duke’s Off-road Ranch. :





Very wet and muddy. You can’t tell from the shots but these are tall hill climbs in mud.







Yup, Life Is Good!
