Tom mentioned to me you guys were looking at some travel. Good luck to you. You should check out the place at Big Mountain before you head out or at least drop in for a powder day in the winter if you guys are back for a stint then. Thanks for the fun routes and multi-day dirt tracks you scouted out. I also have a mover I have used who was excellent.

Bob, we will be back periodically. Renting the house out August 1 for two to three years. New home will be a 31' fifth wheel with my old XR on the back. Wife is quitting her job, and we will have more free time. I will be in the Sonoran desert for the next couple winters, exploring on the old moto and hanging in the sun. Pacific NW for summers, spring in Utah, fall in Midwest. Love to make some turns on your land this winter.

Wow...you are getting after the next chapter in true Trackhead fashion...all in. Tom and I will have to come down to the desert sometime and rally the motos with you as I'm sure you'll piece together some amazing routes there like you did in Utah.

You are welcome to come stay anytime up at the property anytime you are passing through here as we have a few great spots for trailers. Definitely hope you get time to make some turns next winter too. Best of luck to you and Nick and Alex.

Hmmm... Surprised we didn't see you. Or maybe we did. I seem to remember a TW in Monticello. Walrus n I camped on the beach at Mexican Hat on Tuesday nite the 25th after blasting down from SLC. We hit Mtclo on the nite of 26. Really enjoyed that section ( at least "I" did). With the heat going up fast we avoided Lockhart & did the LaSal loop. We bailed out at Wellington with the rain in the mountains.
You definitely get points for the TW effort.

Just thought I'd share some pics of the Epic riding that can be done in the Torrey / Hanksville area

This looks like the ride out of the Capitol Reef Visitors Center up to Lower Bowns area. Great riding for sure!

ok guys don't hate me as I don't have any tracks or gpx files of the route. my usually trusty lowrance xog must have restarted 100 times on the trip . think its time to retire that little guy unfortunately.

ok so I can try to give you the general route we took.

we road pavment down from Layton and caught I-70, once on 70 we caught the Temple mount road (dirt) turn off. we took temple mnt into goblin valley st park, while in goblin valley wee took the road out to Wild horse road, which is really a sand wash, we take the main section of wild horse all the way to hwy 24 and turn east to spend the night in hanksville.

day 2 found us riding a short bit of pavment into fruita which is maybe 15 miles west of hanksville on 24 and its a geourgous twisty ride. once in fruita turn into the capitol reef national park. ride that out to the end and pickup sulpher creek trail / spring gulch out towards the lower bowns reservoir. the rest of the time we picked trails that just looked interesting so I wish I could tell you which ones specifically but it was truly whichever way the wind blew.

we eventually started making tracks back later the 2nd night from this area to spend the 2nd night in torrey Utah. torreys a cool little town with plenty of great places to eat, café Diablo at the west end of town was awesome but.......its expensive.

after a chillaxing the night at the best western which is on the south end of town (hot tub and pool) we picked up the great western trail 1 mile outside of torrey. the GWT is great but be prepared for rocks, rocks and more rocks. you can pick up a free map of the trail from the visitors center in torrey. the map shows caution areas of the trail, usally theres work arounds on these sections but , we were men so we rode them and its great just be ready for some clutch work.

we rode the gwt for 30 miles, but then had to peel off just before cathedral valley and pickup the highway to makes tracks towards Layton to be home before dark.

I hope this helps you guys out, I know its not as good as gpx tracks but there's a ton of stuff to explore down there.

ride safe!
