Heart of the West Adventure Route
Brothers and sisters:
If you're fretting about planning your next ADV ride ... finding time to do the research ... tracking down resources ... stocking up on maps, atlases and guidebooks ... posting queries ... getting the answers you need when you need them ... Ugh!
How 'bout this: Do it the easy way!
Let Backcountry Byways LLC do the work ... so you can live the dream!
Choose the option that suits you:
-- Draw on our decades of on-the-ground experience chronicling the wildland roads of the American West, and have us develop a route tailored to your requirements and interests.
-- Choose our acclaimed Heart of the West Adventure Route, a plug-and-play, thoroughly researched and ready-to-ride "blueprint" that is adaptable to just about any itinerary -- even as you ride!
Many ADV travelers discovered Heart of the West Adventure Route through the legendary Dockingpilot's epic ride report on this grand non-technical travel loop, previously titled “Forever West.” Dockingpilot led the first riders to travel the route as it was at the time. The route has changed substantially since that first draft, and is better than ever.
And it’s now called Heart of the West Adventure Route, which better reflects the scope of what many call the ride of their lives.
Yet far more than the name has changed, for our research, development and revision has continued almost daily since the route's early draft.
The journey is being upgraded, rerouted, revisited, corrected and revised continually -- even roughed up in places that were, well, just too darned civilized. That means it's always new! And because it's always new, we see that H.o.W. clients always have the latest data, even as you travel.
-- Hundreds of new waypoints pinpoint additional campsites and campgrounds, lodgings and fuel stops.
-- Stretches of highway, paved roads and graveled county roads that existed in the original draft have been replaced with wildland two-track trails and other rudimentary yet scenic backroads.
-- Private-property issues are no more, and accuracy is assured through continual on-the-ground verification.
-- Supplementary tracks have been added -- and continue to be added -- to help travelers tailor their trip to their personal interests and itineraries.
One 2013 H.o.W. ride report that reflects these changes -- inmate Tragic Overlander's fast-paced tale of an international team's apparent attempt at an ADV land-speed record -- can be found here. Just be ready for a lot of
You also can read reports by inmates DolphinJohn, Zeegman, Bigdon, and CaseyB.
As those ride reports illustrate, duly adjudicated inmates will find:
More mountain ranges
More two tracks
More of everything ADV!
In the elite world of North American ADV travel, select adventurers who are at the pinnacle of their overlanding careers and newcomers alike are asking: How can I achieve a "trip of a lifetime" ... a non-technical (i.e., no single-track trails) 2,800-mile, two-week odyssey through the wildlands of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and Nevada.
(Note: Don't fret over the length; it can be scaled down for shorter itineraries, too.)
We developed the route for Dockingpilot and his crew's 2010 Western journey after years of research for adventure-motoring guidebooks, magazine articles, domestic and international corporate clients, and explorations undertaken specifically for their trip.
Yet the work didn't end there!
Heart of the West ADV Route is always new. That's because it evolves continually as we evaluate feedback from each season's travelers, and as we do further field research to improve the experience for each upcoming season.
Today ... and every day ... this convenient loop is better than ever!
If you're ready, spare yourself the anxiety, cost and frustration of doing all that research yourself -- and get that ADV vacation of a lifetime rolling the easy way. Join the growing number of inmates who are experiencing an authentic American West adventure ... riders who don't want to do all that work, who don't want to risk their precious vacations, who refuse to pay thousands of $$$ to be led on a 20-bike forced march with ... strangers.
