I'll be following along until we leave for Alaska.
We are leaving in about two weeks. Hope to see you on the road. We hope to be in Deadhorse around the 29th..
I've added a few things to my GSA, but not that much. Four of us (2 GSAs, a Super Tenere, and a 990 Adventure R.
We are planning a pretty aggressive pace. Vacation days are like hen's teeth..
Trip of a lifetime for us.
Ride safe, enjoy.

Well, the doctor says I have an ear infection. I'm on antibiotics and some ear drops. I'm progressing on the move-out of my apartment - I need to be out by the weekend. I plan to leave as soon as I'm moved out...

I'm hoping to be on the road by Monday the 17th. I'll be adjusting the route for the trip north, due to my late start. I will probably just super-slab it (I-5) all the way to Canada and adjust my route from there...

Where are you starting from? I see you are from Missouri, but it doesn't say where. Are you riding up the eastern side of the Canadian Rockies? Since I'm leaving so much later than I had initially planned to, I may see you in Deadhorse... (-:

10 days away from our start.. Whew
We are meeting up in St Joseph Missouri on Fri the 21st, then on to Lusk Wyoming for first night out. Up through Montana. We are going to stay further west on the return. Then cut east after we get down to Idaho. I'd put our pace at "pretty aggressive" as far as miles per day. The Iron Butt ride is more aggressive, but we will be pushing it hard every day.
I'll be looking for you.

Postponed indefinitely... I still have the X Challenge and may be putting it for sale...

Ya - I hate the word Indefinite - it's usually associated with a negative. Hope to hear from you soon Mac.

Well maybe you'll finally have time to ship back that Jetboil I loaned you 18 months ago and have been asking for repeatedly.
