Custom rerouting

From time to time we are asked to alter or shorten Heart of the West ADV Route to suit the time constraints that normal people face.

In the last week, clients who will be accessing the route from opposite ends of the country -- both facing seven-day limits on their vacation time -- asked that the route be reduced by half. We did so. Now one group will begin and end in Jackson, Wyoming, the other in Idaho Falls -- HQ of Backcountry Byways LLC, home of ADV luminaries Questor and MotoAdventureGal, launch site for last summer's Mobius chapter and (just up the road), Klim (Yes you can!). It also was the locale where Dockingpilot's crew launched their maiden run of the route.

Among the advantages of Heart of the West Adventure Route is that it is adaptable to your needs.

Below, some late-September images of little-known and even less-traveled Idaho backroads that I added to one of the custom reroutes, making a truncated but no-less-rewarding 1,400-mile loop beginning and ending in Idaho Falls:
