    Enjoyed the article very much. With thoughts of “Been there, done that!” coursing through my mind. Now, at 83 & confined to only a road recumbent in our “mobile-home” life style, my 10″ front wheel would have a good deal of trouble with that back country riding shown and described.
    Keep on Keeping on!

    That’s really cool, and that area looks beautiful.
    I’m based in NW Iowa, where we have tons of very low traffic gravel roads, but not much to see from them. While gravel road races are growing in popularity, I’m trying to think of ways to promote using our gravel roads to average or touring riders. Maybe a weekend(camping?) tour with shorter days? We’ve got RAGBRAI, so people are used to the idea of riding long distances by bike, but you say “gravel” and people turn and run:)

    Interested to hear your thoughts.

    Your article was very complete as to the good and bad about “gravel”. We took what you helped us learn, and it has really helped us select much better routes. Thanks, Mike Cosgrove

    Nice to see John Day in a better light. Working forestry there in the late 90s was scary and grim….major unemployment, major meth problem, raging hostility from hillbilly locals. It’s always been beautiful, vast country…thank goodness it’s coming back around!
