Damn! Reading these updates sometimes gets me more tensed up than the evening news. And between the crime rate down here and the political hoopla, that's some kind of tense.

But its worth it to watch Doug meet the challenges.

map

The Cannonbal website sucks, the map is not a link so it is impossible to figure out where the riders might be. There is a Yellowstone Lodge in West Yellowstone. At Yellowstone Lake it is Lake Hotel. From Lake or Grant it is not even 100 miles to Jackson, so have NO idea where they are staying. Cool ride, piss poor orginization from the spectators point of view.

From what I have gathered; they are staying at Yellowstone Lodge.They will be riding around it the park and lunch will be at Old Faithful Inn. My wife and I will be there before lunch. We are in Rexburg, Id. now. Our long ride of the year will be including a viewing of all those old but very beautiful bike, plus chatting with Doug and the other rider if possible.

tomorrow is a 4k foot climb up the big horns. luckily, they have given us a pass if we want, we can haul the bikes to the top. Wont get points for the miles missed, but no penalties either

with a new fresh topend, I didnt figure that would be a good way to break it in, so I will catch a ride to the top.

Then, hopefully the bike will do good, as we pass thru yellowstone.

Im really looking forward to that

Doug

FULL POINTS AGAIN! 229 miles for the Indian 101 riders Josh Jeff and Ian and also Steven Rinker went full distance according to his report, but the stats must have a missing number there not 29 but 229 miles. Doug started at the top of the hill and got 133, and Marcin starts tomorrow.

Today

Cold this morning, 28 degrees in West Yellowstone, 26 degrees at Lake. Foggy from the light rain yesterday, should clear fast with the rising sun. The cabins at Lake Lodge aren't much but expensive, and it is only about 80 miles from Lake to Jackson South, so the route must go around the Grand Loop, which makes sense if Lunch is in fact at Faithful. Question is is it over Dunraven Pass and through Mammoth or over Blanding Hill to by way of Norris and Canyon?
Anybody know the actual route? The rain should settle the smoke, Jackson will be smokey, a human caused fire right South of town. http://inciweb.org/incident/3241/ Tetons have been mostly clear each day depending on the prevailing winds.

From what I've read, the actual routes are not made public and the riders are unaware of the days route until the morning of each departure.

Be on the look out for Old Ozzy as well....all the way from the land of the banned...way down under. He's on a red KLR and hopes to meet the Cannonballers at Ol Faithful.

Dude,
You've got some fans here. And, I'm glad to say I'm one of 'em. Maybe you need a brass hammer to go with your bras cajones? Tap, tap! You do know that all you'd have to do is ask and most of us would give you a hand. Really. Good luck.

The riders don't find out until they receive their maps for the next days run, many don't get the map until a few hours before they take off.

Looks like it's been a good day in Jellystone! ...the tracker made steady progress anyway and it's showing Doug down on the South end of the Tetons now, not far from the finish.

I wonder if there will be any buffalo stories?
