So does June 30 mean that's when people are hitting the road from the East Coast, or that's when we are hitting the trail near Albuquerque?
Leaving MD on the 30th.

I am still undecided. I like the idea of doing the whole trip on bike but bringing a trailer has plenty of advantages. If the majority rides out then I would be inclined to do the same. On the other hand, if need be, I could haul out my bike +1 and four people. EDIT: Me +3

The SMIB family tree is used to having few branches. Have I introduced you to my brother Daryl and my other brother Daryl?

Lemme guess Jax - they have different last names?

Sounds more like Appalachia to me!

Oh that's tough. My trip was Sep 18-28 last month. It was dry and even dusty. I guess it rained hard the two weeks before we got there, though.

Well, pick the days you can go and make the best of it! Worst case is you have to wait out the wet when it comes. Can't be that bad, if you have the time to sit in a tent and wait it out.

Have fun. I loved it. Particularly snooping the Oregon Trail between Farson and Lander. The wildlife!

I'm in. Those dates work for me.... I think. As far as Erik goes, I mean Eric... no, it's Eriq. Maybe. I can vouch for him. Or her. Whoever they are.

I'm good man.

I'm done with school on June 19th. Assuming all things equal I'll be ready to go on the 20th.

Now, who's going to watch my house and puppy dogs?

I think who ever is presently on the "in" list and backs out should have to do it.

You expect your wife to leave you when you tell her of your plans?

Who says I'm telling? Actually tentatively she and I are taking about doing the trip two up. Not sure of the feasibility of that though.
