Great read. Learned a lot from it. I'm interested in any groups in Minnesota who would want to do some short trips, once we come up for air under all the snow.

Good Job!!!

Loved the RR and all of the great pics! Thanks for working so hard to post up your trip. It's nice to hear a woman's voice here in the little boy's playground. dd

Excellent ride and report!! Bravo!!

I really enjoyed the photos, and the commentary was top-notch...I enjoyed every word. Thanks!

And I'm so glad your wrist waited to break until the trip was over. I've been many states away from home and had body parts break and it is never any fun. You did it right

Probably the best photos I've seen in a ride report. Very nice report. We really have it made out here in the west don't we?

Edit: Thanks for listing the road numbers. I've been following your route in my Benchmark Maps.

Thanks for all the nice comments! It was the best time we've ever had. I'm glad you enjoyed coming along!

We will be posting a RR for this upcoming summer's trip. We plan on cutting east across Nevada this time towards Great Basin National Park then east some more back to the high plateaus of Utah and the fantastic Paiute trail system. I think we'll then keep going east to check out some of the canyonland areas then on into Colorado. After that, who knows? We're open to suggestions.

Oh, and one of these days we'll post a report on our summer '09 trip.
