This was a Kifaru Sawtooth with a medium stove. It was perfect and packs as small as my 2 man tent... I will be discussing this and the rest of my gear and upgrades after I get the rest of my pics sorted and loaded and finish the report... my cable is hiding from me...

No, the images are still in my camera thanks to a lost proprietary cable.

And, I have been dealing with some health issues.

If you have specific questions ask away and I will answer them.

Hi Ray

I just found your RR. Good job.

I see you have a hitch carrier on your mh. How do you like it? I'm looking at getting one for my 33' Aerbus.

Hi Ron, Thanks for the kind words.

It is a Hitch Hauler and I like it fine. The KLR was too heavy for it but the little WR works fine. There are others with a higher weight rating. Do yourself a favor and opt for the kind that snugs to the receiver so it doesn't squeak and shake so much.

Yes, very cool ride report. I'm thinking that trailer should be in my future!! Would you happen to have any GPS track that you can send from the riding adventure. Looks like a ton-O-fun!!

Just had another small bout of gout myself. I know what to do. The doctor recommended the little "blue and white pills". You know the ones. Lights are on but nobody home....? I decided that wouldn't do.

Googled homeopathic gout remedy.....celery seed!!!! One teaspoonful with a full glass (16oz.) of water. Repeat 2X/day and within 2-3 days....no gout!!!

Best of luck with the WR2.5 and M-Mule.......ride on

Just had a short bout with gout myself. I'm a stubborn SOB. I toughed it out. Not the smartest idea.

fishermannnnnn!! Im always late to things like this. Finally read it all, in one sitting. What an adventure!

Best line of the whole report: "this is an adventure not a field trip!"


Putting that into my signature. I hope one day I can tag along and ride with you on a trip. I can't wait for next summer and for more miles and mayhem.
