I'll be in Portland Friday and Saturday and my kid's birthday is Sunday, so I won't be riding this weekend. Have a good ride, and stay safe. We still haven't had much/any rain, so plan on it being dusty and deep.

Where is that at?
About 10 miles northeast of Pasco, WA. Here is a google map.

Here's a little video from riding a couple weeks ago, should still be a pretty accurate representation of the conditions out there:

How long does it take you to get there? I know St Anthonys is a 5+ hour drive towing. How is the camping there?

Pasco to Boise is about 5 hours if you drive the speed limit and don't make too many stops.

Juniper is BLM and DNR land, and there are no improved camping facilities. Dry camping is allowed, and there are many "established" camp sites, mainly in Smith Canyon and alongside the road on top of the hill.

Anything special to make it worth going there over going to east idaho if the drive is the same? Going over the blues would be tough towing my 38' trailer.

Never been to east idaho, so I can't compare the two areas. There's a lot of acreage at Juniper, but the actual "dune" areas aren't that big (certainly nothing like the dunes on the oregon coast, for instance). There are distinct dunes that are separated by trails through the sagebrush and grass between them. You can ride there all day and never see the same stretch of trail if you want to. It's pretty whoopy on most of the trails. I'm not much of a dune guy in general but I ride at Juniper quite a bit just because it's close and I can run out there for a few hours if I want to.

I'm working over this week so I tow my trailer along and leave at one of my customers business. Pick it up on Friday and go riding. Makes for a long drive home on Sunday though.
