    I have most all our lodging secured including Lochsa Lodge (because it is Labor Day Weekend they have a two night minimum which is fine with me but maybe Mike Olson needs a room on Friday?) The one place I have not been able to reach is The Wilderness Inn... Any advice?

          It is apparent that we are encouraged to support and buy food/supplies/bike maintenance items from vendors along the way. My question is whether T1 riders are allowed to hire vendors to perform services to their machines along the way? Specifically, if we coordinate a tire swap at Les Schwab, are we allowed to hire them to install the tire too? Thanks for all the help and helping us sort out the logistical details!

            D-Knight, it’s my understanding that we are allowed to utilize all public businesses and help from strangers as long as it Is available to anyone and everyone. So all public businesses are Allowed. You just can’t call your buddy in challis Or wherever and have him put your tires on in his garage, because I don’t have that available to me.... 👍

            That will be a big help for us as it will allow us to consider running mousse for our tires. I wouldnt plan to carry the tools necessary to do a mousse swap and will gladly pay to take that burden off our shoulders! Thanks Mike.

ID:	814 I had them install mine last summer and it was typical Les Schwab service. They came running out and grabbed my bike, taking it back to install a new Golden Tyre rear while I sat in the AC and ate popcorn. They came out and asked what tire pressure I wanted and 30 minutes later I was rolling out the door with a big smile. Josh and his team rock!

            Great to hear they jumped to help get you back and rolling in no time, we are planning on AT81 RC or GT333. Regarding your GL mojavi bags in the picture, did you use them to carry fuel bladders primarily? I will be riding a 500xcw and plan to have up to a gallon and a half in each side of my mojavi bags for the big days, rather than strapping them to the top of the fender. Did fuel carry create any complications for you or your teammate?

            D-Knight, I think you're going to find that unless you carry an enormous backpack, that you're going to need the space in your Mojavi bags for various items. I pack incredibly light, and I wear a ZacSpeed Dakar pack, and still find that 2/3 of the space in my Mojavi bags is taken up with various items. Your mileage may vary. Also, the GL fuel bags are amazingly secure on your bike if you attach them correctly.

          I'm curious how you plan to get a gallon and a half in one side of the Mojave, which is 6L and a funny shape.

            D-Knight I did not carry bladders in mojavi full. I did carry them in one side empty and had the rescue kit in the other side, I also had my spare tube and chain lube and 2T oil in the mojavi. there are cross strap loops on the saddle of the mojavi that work with the gas bladders when full. You can cinch them down so they do not move easily. I use camlock river running straps. I agree with Pundy that you will need to go ultra light and load the mojavi tight.

          Several have asked where to stay in Pocatello. Hans and I were there last week and spent two nights. We liked the Center Street Cottage and will stay there again in August. Good location for tour purposes in our opinion and will be good for 2 nights in Pocatello. Lynda is great to work with and let us wash bikes in her parking lot next to the house. Call Lynda at 208-252-1900 or 208-251-1556. You will probably have to leave a message but she will call back.
          FYI we also spent a night at the Thunderbird Motel where the clerk not only allowed us to put bikes in the rooms but encouraged it strongly. Ok for the night with the bike in the room but not a nice place to hang out if you are spending a day in town. The Rodeway didn't' look much better and harder to get the bike in a room I suspect.

            Day 7 Falls ck road 443 appears to still be closed 6/22/2020. How should we proceed in this area. Should we continue on the nominal route out of elk city to waypoint 7Dxyz89 and take the 7Dco back over Ohara to Iron mt alternative and connect in at waypoint 7Db9. down to the selway.... Or do we head straight out of elk city on the alternative 7Db0. and skip 7dxyz75 thru 7Dxyz89. ???
