Hey Trevor, welcome back. Sounds like you are heading to MOAB for a little soul revival..... your are going to shit when you get into the Cnayon Lands. We only touched on a few of the spots. (buy the local maps, they have great details when it comes to the degree challenge for trail you are contemplating)

ICe breaker update

More wrenches thrown into plan. I will not be going out to cottage this week. Turns out not many people could make it this week anyway. I am now looking at the 18th and 19th of this month. Hope that work better for more people anyway, and I'll be fighting to keep those days clear.

I can't wait to get back there again. I'm going with a rental Wing from Vegas in May. Here's a couple of teezers of the White Rim Trail from my trip last November with Greg on the KLR's.

This is looking down and east at the White Rim Trail




This is at the top of the White Rim Trail. We basically road west along the trail below from as far as the eye can see and a bunch further. The pics don't do it justice. It will blow your mind!

KLR Tech day

I have gotten full management approval to host a KLR Tech day. Tuesday May 1st fits into my schedule. I would leave work around 1, make all the preparations at home and be ready to receive visitors by 2 or 3. Let me know if that works for you folks. I live just South of Winnipeg in Grande Pointe.......lots of parking available (although the driveway is gravel) and a double garage to work in. Not sure If any other repairs are performed at these events but I do have a good selection of tools. More details to follow once I get your feedback!
