Many ADV travelers discovered Heart of the West Adventure Route
through the legendary Dockingpilot's
epic ride report
on this grand non-technical travel loop,
previously titled “Forever West.”
Dockingpilot led the first riders to travel the entire route -- and to do it in one trip. (It’s now called Heart of the West Adventure Route
to better reflect the scope of the experience.)
Since that bar-raising 2010 ride, not just the name has changed. The journey itself has been upgraded, rerouted and revised -- even roughed up in places that were, well, just too darned civilized
for our sort.
So in 2014, duly adjudicated inmates will find:
More mountain ranges
More two tracks
More of everything ADV!
(One of several more current, 2013 H.o.W. ride reports -- this one about an international team's apparent attempt at an ADV land-speed record -- can be found here

In the elite world of North American ADV travel, select adventurers who are at the pinnacle of their overlanding careers are asking: How can I achieve a "trip of a lifetime"
... a non-technical (i.e., no single-track trails) 2,800-mile, two-week odyssey through the wildlands of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah and Nevada.
Don't fret over the length; it can be scaled down for shorter itineraries, too
But there's no secret. Just read on ...
We developed the route for Dockingpilot and his crew's landmark 2010 Western journey in a process that drew on years of research for adventure-motoring guidebooks, magazine articles, domestic and international corporate clients, and explorations undertaken specifically for their trip.
Yet the work didn't end there!
Heart of the West ADV Route
is dynamic. It continues to evolve as we evaluate feedback from each season's travelers, and as we do further field research to improve the experience for each upcoming season. So this convenient loop
is now better than ever ... just in time for your 2014 trip planning
If you're ready, dodge the anxiety, cost and frustration
of doing all that research yourself -- and get that ADV vacation of a lifetime rolling the easy way.
