A red plastic jerry can costs twenty bucks

I'll confirm the mileage later this summer once the route has been finalized.

Fuckthatshit you can't scare me off that easy. Worst case scenario we can all ride like Daan did this year: with a gallon-n-a-half tank strapped to the back.

Did you guys pick a date for this yet? If so, not to be a wise ass, but it helps to update the original post with the important stuff so folks don't have to hunt for info. Just saying....and I want to put it on my calendar.

June 29th to July 1st.

July first is a holiday for Canadians and I believe the fourth is for folks south of us ?

This will allow things to dry up a bit and provide warmer temperatures. It also removes conflicts with the Memorial Day weekend and other local dual sport events that take place that weekend.

One week until Jimmy and myself begin pre riding, we'll keep ya posted on progress and hopefully have a few pics to share.
