2 Wheels...... 4 Weeks...... Mountain peaks.......

Well, the initial plan was a ride to Alaska..... however, life and all it brings sometimes gets in the way! Its unfortunate that we didn't get to go. Some friends at work and I had a trip planned since last year. So, I still had the vacation time and decided a trip to the West was the new game plan. The trip started on July 3rd. I left my parents house and slabbed it (~850 miles ) to my uncle Walters house in Pleasant View, just north of Nashville TN.

And so it begins..... Packed up the night before.

I housed his bike for a week in Denver while he jumped in a car with his SO to drive around Wyoming. Headed west towards Moab today (with temps in the upper 90's forecast, 100's here for tomorrow). He mentioned that he had something like 64GB of photos on his laptop...

Update

Well, phew.... what a trip! Sorry for the lack of updates but its been late every night getting in, downloading photos and gps tracks. I am heading back East from here on out, I'm in Limon, CO now. I will try to update the thread Thursday or Friday back at my uncles house in Nashville.

Colorado, South Dakota, Wyoming and Utah were awesome!! The wee has run like a smooth oiled sewing machine the whole time. I only had one problem with her so far, she decided to take a nap on me in Arches National Park!

Well enough for now, I think the laundry should be done.
