Welcome to Overland Bound Darby, we're in Boise too. David
Hello David

Looking to do some southern exploring while the snow is north. By chance could you point me to some possible map site for southern Idaho/northern Nevada? Remote roads/camp sites, etc.

Thanks

Hi Darby,
There are places to travel in Southern Idaho, Northern Nevada, Eastern Oregon. A great day trip is to Succor Creek, and Leslie Gulch. If your are a Fly Fisherman, the Browns on the Owyhee River down river from the Dam at Lake Owyhee is a full day. Jordan Valley, to Danner, North to Clark Butte WSA, Jordon Craters. You can get into Jarbridge, NV and either take the roads to Salmon falls Dam, or go north into Glenns Ferry. Just to name a few routes.
David

Hello Darby, Welcome to Overland Bound.
I am the Northwest Director. @David H is your closest member representative.
To help navigate through the forums, here are some links that can be filtered by “Region” prefix. We are in the Overland Bound North America US Northwest Region (US Northwest for short).
Overland Bound Meetups- is where all member generated rally points are posted in forum format for discussion of Rally Point and other types of Meetups. A meetup can be as simple as a group getting together for coffee, a trail ride, or a full in expedition with other Overland Bound Members.
Overland Bound Trip Planning- is a great place to talk about planning a trip wether by your self or as a group.
Overland Bound Routs: Downloadable- is exactly what it sounds like. Search, or share your GPX files here with a description of the route and POIs.
Share your Overland Routes- is similar time the downloadable posted above, but doesn’t require you to share the actual GPX file.
Overland Bound By Region < North America < US Northwest- is where you can find regional members discussing local events, Overland News, and general topics. It’s a great recourse to mete others in the regions.
Member Maps- a great trip planning tool. It can also be used to send out messages to members near your location, or a location you plan to visit.
Rally Point- a tool used to creat Meetups or send out an SOS.
Any questions, don’t hesitate to ask myself or your member representative team. Again welcome and hope to see you on the trails.

Hey Darby - Welcome to Overland Bound. Everyday I'm amazed to see how much getting out is so helpful to our physical and mental health. If you don't mind me asking, what type of overlanding/camping experience do you have? What are you looking forward to for this next 9 months? What questions do you have for me/us here at the OB forum???
Please feel free to drop me a line anytime.

We used to go to Silver city (ghost town) to go camping when I was stationed at MtHome back in the 90s. Stanley area has some nice primitive camping too.
