Hoping we don't get eaten by a bear tour....actually just hoping to see one

In less than 10 hours I am heading for Salt Lake City from Kansas City. It's only 1100 one problem...

I always seem to start our trips off with an iron butt ride. Needless to say my wife is flying to Salt Lake. She wants nothing to do with a 1000 mile plus day!

We will be visiting Jackson, Wy, Yellowstone, Glacier, Spokane, Seattle, Mt. Rainier, Portland, Redwoods, Lake Tahoe, Moab then home. She will be departing from another airport so that I can almost do another iron butt home.

We have traveled many states and locations on motorcycle and other means where bear are known to frequent. WE HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE IN THE WILD!!!! We are hoping this changes on this trip....from a far of course!

Good friends of ours from Guatemala toured this part of the country on his way to and from Alaska a few years ago. I was a bit jealous after seeing his pictures. Hopefully we can see many of the same sites that they saw but we don't have near the amount of time!

Here is a link to our spot tracker

Let the fun begin!
Have Kegs will travel!

Speaking of bears - I saw them in my backyard when I was living in Mt. Tabor in NJ. Mt. Tabor is right next to Parsippany.

There was just a very small/low fence separating us from them. A few hours later this event was on news.

It is a somewhat scary sight.

Subscribed. Good Luck.
