My friends both got a spot on one trailer the afternoon before the awards banquet. As I recall they took 2.5 days to get back to Kirkland. As we get closer the club will focus on how many support vehicles and trailers.





Meanwhile, Mark and I loaded up and rode back in 3.5 days.



I will say the ride back was very nice. There was no pressure of making stage start times or navigating. We just rode...

Day one started at 6am and ended at Whitehorse and we had to change a tire on the KLR. Day two started with another flat that took awhile, but made it to Ft Nelson about 9pm. Day three ended about 100 mile house I think. We rolled into Kirkland about 2pm. Loaded the trailer and drove straight through to Phoenix. Arrived the following evening.
