Those pics beg the question: how often are there restaurants/food stops along the route? Thinking one good warm meal a day could go a long way, and then just live on power bars and jerky the rest of the time.

Last year we had 3 warm meals a day. You aren't quite in a waste land, just a sparsely populated paradise. If you stop for gas and food when you are passing gas and food you will have it, if you drive by it you may not see it again for a while.

I think there's a law against "passing gas" here.

T-50 Days!

Only 50 days left till the chaos begins.

Here is the lastest update of the Riders List. 27 riders who signed up but haven't confirmed...if you're one of those 27 or one of your riding buddies is, it would be helpful to let us know if you're still attending as space is limited.
