I had what he was going to do, but the snow delayed him, so for the first two days he is going to slab it, then get off and cruise the back roads. I know that he is planning on going south and hitting Socorro and taking 60 west through Pie town towards show low and then head north to Vegas and into DV from there. He talked about hitting OKC then getting off the super slab. Waiting to see how he does on the road to OK.

Do you know how long his trip is? I was thinking we might be able to link up on the way back. I'll be in Lexington KY Kingsport TN and Radford VA April 3rd-8th

I just know that I will see him until Easter Sunday, his plans are fluid from there. I was recommending that he go through monument valley and southern CO on the way home. But I have no idea what he is doing.

If I had known, 6 and muffin could have bunked here overnight. It is cold out there. I know because I rode in to work today, return trip home at 6:30 temp was only 30

His plan was to leave earlier today and he got held up leaving the house, and that put him way behind.

It's definitely possible Lance. I'll head back Easter Sunday and like Bob said - my plans are fluid, but weather dependent. I'll be in touch and maybe we can get together.

And to everyone else, many thanks for the well wishes. We were delayed first by snow and then, just as I was locking the front door to leave a heavy gust of wind (like 35 to 40 knots heavy), knocked the bike over. By the time I unloaded, picked it up and then re-packed it was 1500. So, we made it to Roanoke and stopped for the night. If the weather holds (it's been cold, but dry) we'll make OK tomorrow night. Friday we're off the slab and on back roads.

I'll try to remember to turn the Spot on tomorrow.

Stay warm, dry, and head west. If we can make it work... How cool is that.

Oh and watch out for these guys... Squirrel



I've killed three so far on this trip...
