    Boise gear stash?

    Looking for a place to securely stash some gear/bags while on a 10-14 day bike trip that starts and ends at the Boise airport.
    I canít find anything about bag storage at the airport and therefore assume it isnít an available service.
    Any ideas appreciated, bizarre ideas really appreciated.

    go to the nearest post office and mail the shit to yourself at the same post office care of general delivery. they will hold the shit under your name for 90-120 days.... if I remember correctly.


    learned bout that general delivery stuff at the waitsfield post office. worked sweet fer me for bout 5 years or so.... much cheaper than an actual box.

    Nice objective. Our trip started as a bikepacking concept and evolved into the rented van with mountain bikes ticking off rides on a road trip. Probably end up drinking more beers than your ride.

    I've got a college buddy that lives in Boise who I'll see when we get there, I'll ask about storage for you.

    Apparently not all PO's accept general delivery, as I was told by one PO when I tried to mail something to a friend via general delivery. So check first if that's your plan. Won't be worth it if you have a lot of stuff or bike bags. Maybe a bike shop could help?

    I'm in Boise and would be happy to stash your stuff for you. Hell, buy me a drink and I might even be able to give you a ride from the airport.
    I also manage a bike shop in town so if you need anything bike related, I can hook it up.
    The hot springs route is a real treat. It's practically the perfect dirt touring route if you're into that sort of thing.
