Day 1. Nampa to Mountain Home.
Iâ€™ll start in Nampa and head south through Melba and end up at the Mountain Home RV Park in Mountain Home. Iâ€™ll end the day with 2,605 feet of elevation gain and 88 miles on the bike. There arenâ€™t many places to get water, so I am going to bring a CamelBak in addition to my water bottles.
Day 2. Mountain Home to Craters of the Moon. (a.k.a. The Test)
Starting in Mountain Home Iâ€™ll climb toward the heavens for 4,787 feet and by the time the day is done Iâ€™ll have 126 miles under my belt. There is a big flat section in the middle, so that should help. The first part of this day doesnâ€™t have a lot of places to get water, so it will be another day with the CamelBak and I will have Tory drop a gallon of water part way.
Day 3. Craters of the Moon to Rexburg
Hopefully my legs are still working and I can enjoy a 107 mile day with 1,800 feet of elevation loss. Iâ€™ll go through Arco, Mud Lake, and the sand dunes.
