Dingweeds just sold all his work tools so he can't work---so I guess he's retired to !!!!!!

We are going to do both the Utah and Colorado backcountry discovery routes also around the first of September----the date won't be set in stone for awhile. Bill will probably just do Colorado with us----but were all excited to do this

We'll try not to run into each other O2RideMore.
Lot's of WR's are going to be on the trail.
Dingweeds has almost 50,000 miles on his---we'll see if it will make it

wr250 party UTbdr CObdr

Not sure of routes yet, but we may ride out, recover, then head south west on the cobdr, and do UTbdr south to north. Have a possible mountain cabin/condo near park city, so may try to get there on time for a shower. :) Camping all along the way, and hoping to do all in 2 weeks. Gonna be a blast. Love the videos online.

Mark, let us know if you figure out that northern connector. Maps looked like a slab connection out of way. We will wait for you to try it first

swinging bridges and credit card woes...

I was just wondering if anyone beside me has had their credit card hacked after staying at the best western on the bridges ride?
When I checked in, I was told that my card was declined. I then used my debit card. It was accepted. Shortly afterwards, my debit card was being used freely across Georgia.
This may be a longshot, but I did overhear several peaple in the parking lot stating that their card was declined. Any other peaple with this problem? Or was I just (Lucky)

Yes-----------I not only figured out a route-----------I figured out an awesome route that probably is going to be as interesting as the rest of the ride.
It goes over some awesome mountains and mesas--mostly offroad. Even gets on the immigrant trail a bit.
And goes thru the town of "Ding"--------wait till Dingweeds see's that !!!!!!
I'll get out my big Marker and deface their town sign.

Check you PM's Oh2RideMore

BigDog, it was a long, long day. Among several. Ha.. I was awake early, so I took off. We were staying in the Univ of Alaska dorms. It was 90 degrees in the room. No sleep,might as well ride.
The bike made it too.. (From the top of Atigun Pass)
Went over to Hyder yesterday.

Down near Banff tonight. I'll have to do a RR. It's been a heck of a trip.

Awesome Jeff---------those glaciers was one of my favorite things up North,

Glad you had a great trip-----a trip of a lifetime.
I can't believe they didn't have AC in those dorms-----I couldn't have slept either. It was nice in there when I was there---and it was pretty warm outside.
Can't wait to hear about it all.

We split up. Actually, I split off. I'm a weird old bird, just too set in my ways. I wanted to keep us together, but couldn't. Rusty got sick after I left, I believe he flew back, and is shipping his bike. Gary and Shelby are still out riding. Long story..
