trust me, it can be done on a fully loaded bike if you have the proper set up.

finally, i found someone to drive my truck and carry 3 coolers with food and refreshment for 8 people, 30 gals of gasoline, 25 gals of water, 6 bundles of firewoods, etc. the plan is meet in mesquite and leave saturday morning. we broke the group into 2. the easier route is 125 miles (20 miles of pavement) and the shorter but challenging is 105 miles of pure dirt.

our objective is get to and camp at TOROWEAP on the north edge of the Grand Canyon

saturday morning - may 28th, 2011
