Really looking forward to meeting you all and desperately need an outing like this. Taking the 640 for this and probably the 950 for the Quien Sabe. Hoping my wrist heals for the San Juan as I had a blow out of the rear tire on a corner last weekend and it took me for a heck of a ride. All is good though as it could have been a lot worse than a swollen sprained wrist.

Look forward to meeting you all!!!!

I opted for a smaller top box......the Pelican 1450. I love it, but it wasn't tall enough for the wife as a backrest to make her feel safe......so I mounted a 1 gallon Rotopax to the lid. It is perfect.

I'm really looking forward to this ride. I will have my RV in site 7 starting on Saturday. I plan on just leaving it there for the whole week. Is there any chance of gps file for this ride?

I sent out the GPS tracks for this ride to everyone going on the ride, but i don't track any ADV usernames.

Send me an email and I'll see why I missed you.

My friend John forwarded the email. The address for me in the header looks correct so I must have inadvertently deleted it. Anyhow, I'm getting ready to load the route into the Zumo now.

Thanks!

Had a great time on this ride. My favorite part was Bolam Pass. What a hoot! Here's a quick vid of Matt doing a water crossing at the bottom of the pass.
