Once used the 4 litre wine bag you get in those el'cheapo French Cross boxes to float gear across a river then filled it with fuel for backup.

VBR : keep the photos coming.
You'll enjoy the trials, its a few notches below the FIM World Rounds that were held there on Spirit Mountain, but far above what us mere mortals can do on two wheels. I really wish I was able to be there for the rally, I was looking at the booklet from the VBR 5 years ago, and it really made me wish I was there again.

Hey Gumby

Hey Gumby how are things.
North road to the mine is not too bad, grader works it reasonably regular. From Mine turn off to Windigo is not bad but has some wash board spots but nothing too serious.
Distance from the Frontier Store to the end of the dock is 240 kilometres.
Good old KLR can do it, I went ups nd back with no issues but I also have an IMS tank.
PM with your plans, if your going solo and looking for company I may consider going for the ride, I only did it 19 times last winter. hahaha
Take care.

I am thinking I will fill up somewhere around the half way to the end of the road stash the gas somewhere and fill up/pick up the container on the way back to save carrying some fuel
Thanks
Northeast Minnesota thread, http://advrider.com/forums/showthrea...81492&page=179 page 179 -180. Rode up there with Arrowhead Rider. It was 165 miles from Pickle Lake to the fish processing plant on Windigo Lake. AR's KLR almost made the whole round trip on the stock tank. He filled about 50 miles north of Pickle Lake on the return. It was good high speed gravel most/all the way.

I must get great mileage. I made that trip, return, and never even hit reserve!
