For you guys wondering, we fowarded our airplane travel clothes and the gear bags holding our riding gear on the bikes as they were trucked, to the last motel in Portland Oregon. They would be waiting on us there. We would not carry them across thankfully. We only had the nessecities, which wasn't much
"Light is Right"
Also, I learned from Tony that we were riding:
The Colorado Platue (Utah)
The Great Basin (Nevada), where water does not flow to either ocean, it just sinks. It was also a giant inland sea a very long time ago, its borders running from the Rockies to the Cascades.
And finally the Cascade Ranges.
Cool ha ?
