Gettin' Dirty with the Wans: 8400 miles - UTBDR, KLIM rally, Canada, WABDR, OBDR +

Itís that time again - our 15th wedding anniversary and more testing of the marriage vows with some 2up dirt.
BigWan and I survived the Summer of Stupid, and now we wanted more.



53 days on the road
8400+ miles
8 states, plus Canada
4.5 sets of knobbies
3 safety cones abandoned along the trail

along with a couple of flats, some get-offs, and maybe a crash or 2...



I suck at maps, so until I get one together, hereís a laundry list of some of the stuff we did.
It should help you decide if you want to waste time reading this thing or not...



Nevada to Torrey, UT mostly offroad
Capitol Reef/Cathedral Valley
Black Dragon Wash/Eagle Canyon/Cat Canyon
Skyline Drive (utah)
The entire Utah Backcountry Discovery Route (including Lockhart Basin/Hurrah Pass and a stab at the Porcupine Rim trail)
Yellowstone National Park
The KLIM Adventure Summit (including Idaho single track, Jimmy Lewis, the slow challenge, and a whole lot of ADV inmates)
Idaho (including the Magruder Corridor and the Lolo Motorway)
British Columbia backroads (including some KVR/Trans Canada Trail and 2 days of Mad Radekís Canadian Lunacy Tour)
The Washington Backcountry Discovery Route
most of The Oregon Backcountry Discovery Route (including an awesome snow-less ride up Crane Mountain)
finishing up with a small taste of the Pacific Crest Quest (Gold Lake and Sierra Buttes)




hereís a little sample of what to expect...








I took over 6000 photos, plus we have hours of video to pull from.
Whew.
This is going to be a long one...


After almost 8 weeks on the trail, itís a little tough to re-assimilate.
Living in the forest has turned us into savages.
Itís hard enough to get used to all the people and noise, but having to use a hairbrush (no more, ďmy helmet will fix thatĒ),
wear clean clothing, and pay attention to grooming really sucks.


I'll do my best to sit in front of this stupid box and write out the report...
But what I really want to do is get back outside.
