    About 8weeks till I take off, the trip got two extra days, and I'll be taking off June 10-28th.

    Been kinda slacking on my planning, such like where to eat,sleep.. Etc.

    So ima just wing this trip. And good ole time maps.

    Vegas was in the picture, but might be skipping that now, don't want to go to Vegas for my first time and be by myself.

    L.A will probably be the southern point of this trip.

    its too bad you dont have more time, i would meet you in LA and drag you across country to Boston with me. it would be great to have a partner. have you thought about looking for someone on the return trip? im sure there will be plenty of other people headed up north that same time. You may be able to share a hotel every few days and get a warm shower.

    If I do have enough time, I will make it to LA,

    And as far as the way back, I haven't really contact anyone. .

    If I meet other riders or they meet me. & were heading the same way. That works with me .

    :)

    Ps...23 days...
    Which is going by quick.

    Departing soon, supposedly depart date is set for June 8th next Saturday , but I may take off Friday after getting off work and head down to Tok to get a head start.
    Thompson eagle campground sound great.


    Everything's loaded but the tank bag.

    Last time I went that way I took highway 99 that goes past Whistler. So going south in Canada on 97 take 99 west. That was the best road of the whole trip. Nice windy road for miles and miles and scenic too. Trust me you will not regret taking that road.
