The Strip.
Lots of history there too.

And most of that history left interesting roads to explore... so great dualsporting. It is absolutely criss-crossed with roads, and the several times I've traversed the area, I've never seen another soul (once off the main way).

Wilderness???

National Geographic did a map in the mag in past year or so showing/telling where you can go in N. America and I think this is correct"be more than 20 miles from a road" and there are damned few places anwhere that it is actually possible! I think I live in the booinies in rural eastern KY but from the air it is actually more tame than it seems out hoofing it in the woods.

Uranium City Saskatchewan. We used to haul yellowcake (un-processed uranium) out of there. I hope you enjoy your own company.

Great Basin NP in East Central Nevada
Big Bend NP in Southern Texas

Those are the two least visited national parks from what I can tell.

The most remote place in the US from my understanding is the Maze area of Canyonlands NP.

K2ride - that's a nice map you posted there. Any way I can get a copy of that with all the waypooints?

Oldrice-
I may be interested, Oldrice. I just booked the time with the wife, so hopefully I'll be heading that way this summer as well.
