I wanna do this!



MT1000 is on my to do list. I too would like to try it out on a KLR.

All I need is the bike, and some vacation time. Maybe the next year or two.

Thanks for the RR, RC!

Back to the report!

So we head into Lincoln, Mt for some lunch







http://royalcoachman.smugmug.com/Oth...4_JC4jr-XL.jpg




Someone rode a old triumph on the ride
Back on the trail headed to Marysville. This section of the ride was full of great scenery as is to be expected.









These next photos were taken after we made it through Horse Creek Rd at the end of the day. This road was steep, rough and challenging and of coarse I didn't get one pic of it

I was really impressed how John, Tim and Pete rode their overloaded pigs up that hill









When we arrive at the finish of this days route, Rudy a inmate here on ADV
was waiting with refreshments and snacks! Those were the best home made cookies ever! Again I did not get a photo of Rudy and his truck but he was an Angel

On to find a camping spot
We find this neat little spot off of the road, complete with a small creek







Be back soon

As I have stated before, I was elected to lead this group of wayward adventurers on this wonderful ride! Sometimes me and my gps did not see eye to eye and I would have to back track

This is part of the CDT! Whoops, wrong turn









This was a rough trail indeed! Tim rode up to advise me that John and his gps had a bit of apprehension with my route choice

I took their advise and soon I got my act together




About this time a little further down the road I met up with these guys!



It seems that Shawn(Direwolf) had a flat on his XR and needed some help
so I volunteered! A scant 2 miles further after we had Shawn's tire repaired,
Cheryl picked up a souvenir in her rear tire



Cheryl did not have a spare tube, so I gave her my spare and we were back on the road in another 40 minutes. During the down time to fix two flats, Tim,Pete, John and Rick decided to go ahead with John as the navigator.
Ed and Shawn invited me to tag along with them as I was handy with a set of tire Irons

Back on the trail, we made our way to town for some fuel and a bite to eat





After lunch we were back on the route







WE ran into this cowboy and his heard along the way



This would be our camp for the night. WE would have our entertainment for the evening provided by Geek and Viola-tor!
Diek played us some magical music on his awesome carbon fiber Viola, while Geek serenaded us with a wine induced version of the song "Roxane"

Ed, you really made us laugh!!
Thanks for that evening

After a late night and a some what late start the next morning due to the we where headed out again. Today's ride would include a poker run!



Pic of the first stop of the poker run



We came upon the group of KTM riders, one of them having minor difficulties





Some more scenery






This was the next stop on the poker run



Then back on the trail headed for Virginia City











Some of the locals we met





Looks like we are going to get wet!





And finally Virginia City



I think Ed's hang over was about gone by now



The storm was moving in









Virginia city is a neat little town that got its start in the gold mining industry like so many other towns in the west.





The saloon we hung out at during the rain





Me with a diet root beer





Now it was time to get to Ennis for some fuel and supplies for camp



This was to be our camp at Ruby Res. A great place!











What a great couple

Sorry I did not get a pic of Ed And Cheryl together

Ed & Cheryl and Shawn & Beth are some of the nicest people you could ever hope to be with

It was a hot dusty day and some of us needed a bath!





Aaaah, fresh as a daisy

There it is, Chimney Rock in the distance

Know wonder the settlers used this as a landmark! I mean, how the hell could you miss it. It must be the most prominent feature of the landscape for 500 miles in any direction!
Next up, Scott's Bluff

Getting there






These pics were taken on top of Scott's Bluff
The settlers did not actualy pass through here for it was to rugged.
They passed through north of here near Mitchel Neb.
I was told you can still see the wagon ruts near Mitchel but I couldn't find them.
I bet Cannonshot or Big Dog could find them They got a nose for this stuff

Be back tomorrow with more

Glen
