Just testing the waters and seeing who else from Idaho may be out here. I know of at least 1 group on FB, but, it seems that there are very few travels/events/ info...at least what I can find on the maps or forums. Maybe this is a good time to start a networkView attachment 67897

Welcome to Overland Bound!
Check the forum calendar and meet-up page for events and trips that might be happening close to you.
There are lots of OLB members in the Boise area a good way to find them is to message on the forum using the map feature for your area.
If you have any questions message me on the forum @Kent R

Welcome to OB. I live in Boise, too. There are a good # of OB members within a 40 mile radius of Boise. We were up in Idaho City last week a stumbled across a Jeep owner with his badge next to the Trail Ready sticker. I'm just a mile south of the BSU campus, off-of Broadway. Gibbs

Hey thanks for the tag and kind words, been out with the kids at the park today.

Welcome to OB! Another Boise resident here, native to Boise even haha. I went rock crawling with a group of guys a week ago, but those were some pretty serious rigs. Would love to get a local group together !

@David C Gibbs

Next time you make an idaho city run give me a shout, always up for lunch and pie at Trudys.

Trudy's has a great Patty-melt, and Onion Rings. We had a late lunch there on Sunday. I spend a lot of time Fly-fishing on the North Fork, and down into the Middle Fork of the Boise. DG
Their prime rib finger steaks are awesome too. I havent done any fly fishing up there. Was further up Thursday by Fir Creek and had an excellent day on the water. Just got my custom fly rod in the mail today so I need to go test it out asap.

Boise here as well. Just joined OVB
Welcome to Overland Bound, @BMA. The Southwest Idaho area has a number of great activities going on, as you have already discovered [link]. There are also members throughout the PNW holding events that might peach your interest, so I recommend continuing to checking out the Overland Bound Northwest Region forum [link] for meetups and to get to know your extended neighbors. You may also want to post an introduction on the main forums "New Members Start Here" thread [link].

Events are also posted on the Rally Point system [link], so you might want to check that out as well.


I look forward to seeing you out there! If you need anything, feel free to hit me up on the forums: @Jedi.

Would anyone be interested in doing a day trip? I've been up into the owyhees a few times, but would love to check out a few more areas. I'm also pretty new to off roading in general, and am definitely not comfortable going alone yet.
