Nice, well look forward to your pics. If you feel like staying on the road until August I plan on heading north to Idaho. Probably hit up Yellowstone and Grand Tetons on the way. Keep this thread updated, and learn how to add some pictures. You'll have to make a thread for the main forum later, you're on an epic adventure.

Wyoming

So Wyoming has been awesome. Pretty much made it through Wyoming on back dirt roads. Till i hit Yellowstone obviously. Damn the people suck at driving. Stopping in the middle of the road and getting out of cars to take a picture of a fucking dear. BIG FUCKING DEAL people. Shoot it..eat it..mount the head on your wall. Fuck lol. Boise Idaho is up to bat next. Not much there but family. Then from there ?????? We shall see. I've ran into a lot of adv guys while on the road. Been fun. Dont want it to end. Any one care to sponsor me lol. I want to keep rolling. Through the America's and then some. Need some backing. So lets go people. I accept all major credit cards and checks are accepted :)

Ride hard and safe
