About the time you 4 prairie dogs are in the heart of Mexico the deep freeze will be full on back home. I will swap you temps and snow depth at home (Calgary) for temps where you're at on your travels in case you get homesick. Deal? Ride safe.

Looks great! I see the Reddit alien... is this cross posted elsewhere?

I see you are from Olympia? Send me a private message if your crew is coming this way and needs couchsurfing space. Have fun, I wish I could be doing this right now, and as a young guy, I'm pretty jealous. Next year, next year.

As a KLRista I must subscribe. Shoot me a PM if you guys need any assistance or route recommendations, while in southern Idaho. There are some great unpaved route in these parts, Good Luck! I wish I had had the smarts too do a trip like this before I got saddled with a family.

I'm just saying!

This definitely has the makings of an excellent adventure. Over the coming months I suspect we'll hear tales of smashed cameras, fallen bikes, drunken and hungover friends, and at least one naked hooker with a venereal disease....wait a minute a couple of those things have already happened!

I'm just sayin'

Just razzin' you a bit; having written several RRs while in the midst of a trip, I know exactly what it takes to do it, so do what you can and update when possible, and above all, ENJOY YOURSELVES! )
+1 to that. Subscribed and looking for the updates. sounds fun.

P.S. It might happen again at some point.
Don't sweat it. Stuff like that doesn't matter.

This is shaping up as an epic ride.
