Ancient Mariners ride the Continental Divide

This ride report chronicles the continuing misadventures of the Ancient Mariners. Previous rides to Alaska and Labrador can be found in my sig line.

It is intended to be a complement to the SoMD Adventure Riders Continental Divide Ride Report

How this was all put together can be reviewed here

Yet another report from our group

Since there were a lot of folks interested and involved in this ride there are a number of reports and more to come. I will be trying to find them all and attach links.


But i digress. June 28 rolled around and my trusty steed was ready to roll.







I didn't need to do much to get ready for this ride but I did add a mount for the GoPro camera.




Makes the cockpit crowded.




There was one problem - the Waldo Canyon fire in Colorado Springs forced the other half of the Mariners to evacuate his home and hedidn't take a bike with him. This maybe a single Mariner ride.

As is tradition all my availbe family members gathered at a lodal restaurant for a last supper with me before I left. My plan is always to ride about 100 miles the first evening and then start in earnest in the morning.
My grandson checking to see if he can reach the pegs yet.



My new granddaughter (7 days old) deciding she doesn't like motos yet




The younger of the Ancient Mariners ready to roll. First stop Ruther Glen VA.





While this is a CDR report I have to get to Antelope Wells, which entails a ride across country. To keep myself entertained I will be working on an IronButt Association Master Traveler Award. This requires me to visit a minimum of 50 National Parks in 25 states and get stamps at each of the parks visited. Most of the report until I get to New Mexico will be a history lesson.

this ride ended in a face plant chronicled here
