I wanted to chime in my great enthusiasm for Greg Morgan helping or leading a good, chunky data effort in OSM like this.  Greg took on the USBR 90 effort in Arizona, hundreds and hundreds of miles of bicycle route, now very well entered in OSM and AASHTO-approved.  It took him weeks, but it would take anybody weeks or months, and he did a fantastic job.

Greg was like a co-pilot, taking his responsibilities very seriously, using Mapillary to super effect, asking excellent questions, taking the small amount of direction required very well and just being all-around a top-notch communicator and team member.  If you have any interest in this Idaho project, notice that below, Greg offers to lead the effort!  So, listen up and throw your shoulder in with him and watch wonderful things happen in OSM with Greg at the helm.  Collaborating with him is like an enjoyable adventure!
