Eagle to Moab tomorrow

Anybody riding west? 2005 V-strom 650 loaded up with camping gear, leaving Eagle early afternoon.

I'm thinking Glenwood Canyon
south out of Silt to Colbran
Grand Junction to Gateway
John Brown Canyon to either Castle Valley or La Sal Loop (recommendations? may be solo, easier may be better).

recommendations? Do you mean for camping or routing?

I meant recommendations for route, either through Castle Valley or around La Sal Loop. Camping should be fine - I'm an experienced dirt bagger with an emphasis in stealth camping.

May scrap the route anyway as plans are evolving. Looks like Goblin Valley is the destination, not Moab. Looks like some freeway pounding in my near future.

Did John Brown to Castle Valley about 1 month ago. Road was in great shape should be lots of fun on the Strom even with a load.
