Trailering

OK, who is planning on trailering and are you willing to haul bikes/passengers?

Good for now on the dates.

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?

If you drag the trailer to NM, what about seeing if you can store it on Kirtland AFB?

Data point for the crew. My buddy has a cabin just south of Taylor Park CO. Last year, he was not able to get into his property Memorial day. He had to wait another two weeks and then there was still a foot of snow on the ground. That was at 10.2K feet. Cottonwood pass was closed for almost another month.

Check the passes before you head north.

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!

We are all really in just tentatively but you see no major problems with the dates and your job right? This really is all about you....
