I thought about that when I went out to pee at night
It was a perfect evening-------the temps were just right for camping and there was no wind.

Places like this..especially getting to camp there, are so beautiful to me that's it's almost surreal.

Nice RR. Thanks for taking us along!

Happy Riding!

Hope the weather was as good for you.
I was totally ignorant about this place---and called somebody at the Forest service and they told me I had to have a permit to camp there.
Then I called the BLM and she said no problem to camp there.
She did ask me to do a few things.
Don't camp in a new spot---don't get off the main road-----pack it in---pack it out---leave no trace.
And we did.
There are no facilities there whatsoever.

I'm in for this one!!! I've done Valley of the Gods & Moki a couple of times on the VFR. We usually camp at Goosenecks--also primitive--and WINDY....

Our daughter Heather & her boyfriend have lived in Cortez for years. They both work in the Sheriff's dept & they ride. Stop in & say Hey next time you are there.

Now back to the report. Your pix are way better than mine....

I feel like such a riding woosie----after reading your guys stuff.

I'm not handy with the videos like you Wan---but I've got one coming up what will tickle your belly.
I had to pause it 8 times when my wife watched it as her gut was killing her.

BigDog
Aw, BigDog - thanks for the kind words!
We're just really, really dumb.
Matt says "hi", we're looking forward to that video!

Nice campsite on the Mesa. Guess I'd have to stretch my hammock between two bikes.

Thanks Mark!

First off, I'd like to thank Mark, Scott and Bill for the ride of a lifetime. Even "Biblical flooding" couldn't dampen the great time that we had. Incredible scenery, great company, no major crashes or mechanical issues (not even a flat tire) and a ton of laughs. Mark (with Dingweed's help) had planned a perfect route and only the weather and some terrain issues (on the first day) required us to change the route slightly. Big Dog and Dingweed have this GPS thing down pat which is a good thing as I wasn't much of a help. It was sure nice to just have to follow along and not worry about making a wrong turn and being left for the buzzards. We got into some deep silt on day one that lasted for about a mile but everyone made it through and the camp at Mulely Point was something special. I'd also like to add my thanks to Jeff and his family for their wonderful hospitality, it was very much appreciated. Bud

Another great BigDog/Dingweed RR!! Can't wait, especially since it's in my favorite ride country. Doesn't get any better than Utah?Colorado!! Kind of picked up 10 years of living in unpredictable Colorado high country weather-- glad I'm not the weatherman making the impossible forecasts for that region.

Planning on traveling part of the route soon (if weather permits).

Looking forward to another Big Dog adventure.
