We had a super cool camp host, Steve who was one of us- owned a VStrom and before that goldwings … He gave us a biker friend super discount and gave us access to the pavilion for parking out bikes and hanging out

Steve told us about a group he gets together with and just recently hosted – the International Brotherhood of Motorcycle Campers- http://www.ibmc.org… Our campsite for the night… Much welcome when we pulled in around 9pm- it doesn’t get dark until like 10pm and we we’re off like a herd of turtles around noon that morning…

From there we headed on down i20 east towards Idaho, following along the Malheur River where we stopped for a much need dip in the cool water

We drove off the road a little to get to the river… A little off-road adventure…

From there we made it into Idaho and stopped for the night in Givens Hot Springs… A public hot spring pool with room for camping … The pool sits at about 100 degrees- super relaxing
