Day trippin…That sounds about right.


As others have said, I don’t know how your rode that 1150 through South Pass in its current condition, in the dark, let alone in a wind storm that was blowing so hard my tent was practically flattened. With all of the background wind noise, I didn’t even hear your bike roll into camp that night. You were only a few spots from me.
