Wow!

I'll try to catch up at least when you are in my area (Polaris, Bannack, Lemhi Pass). I don't know how you could improve this part of the route!

I got a NR Adventure Dry bag a couple of weeks ago. Looks like a great bag; everything needed to strap to bike, heavy duty and should be water / dust proof.

Thanks for your work on this!

Would it be possible to show/describe the "route in general"? Might help inmates (including me) provide suggestions if will touch an area we are familiar with?

Correction

I hate to quote me above, but I should correct. I was involved in planning the 2010 and 2011 rides; nothing to do with 2012, FWIW. Brain fart, I guess.
