2-up FL to AK, looking for tent space, local advice...
Tomorrow is the big day! We are heading out on the Wee, Alaska bound. The loose plan is to do this in a 4-5 month period and take in the sights, plus meet some more of the awesome inmates here. And try to pull off a budget of $60-$80 per day. So tent space would really help us out! Also any suggestions on things to see, or altering our route for the better are welcome. Good MC roads, destinations, places to eat along the way...
This is our second attempt at touring on a bike, we did a test run back in November to see if we could make it work. Here is the link to that RR:
Day 1: Ocala, FL to Helena, GA, or maybe Dublin. Somewhere in that area along the 441 corridor. Can anyone recommend a cheap campground in that area, or offer us some tent space?
Day 2: Helena to Dawsonville or there about. 441 to Athens, the 129 NW. We can camp in the National Forest (going to by a one-year pass for these) but it would be fun to hang out with some local inmates too. I have ridden with a bunch of you guys up there, and have a message out to Flux.
Day 3 TBD.
Then North on 68 and over to Telico Plains to buy more stuff from Mini Mike. We may do the Dragon, or ride 74 over to middle of the Smokies, and go North on 441 through there. Then pick up 321 West. On to 95 and 61 near Norwood and Oliver Springs. Up to Eglin, where we pick up 52 West for a while.
Here is a shot of the bike and my better half, all ready to go.
Tonight, it will be loaded up and ready for an early departure.
