    Hey Kevin & company! I've been waiting a while for this RR, and its definitely off to a great start. Looking forward to more photos and stories from the trip!

    Hosting you guys (and gal!) was a treat... you definitely hold the record for the most ADV'ers in our yard at one time! Our lawn has never been as crowded as this before:

    he went the extra mile to help us. He even went and got wood in his truck and delivered it to us for a campfire.

    This morning we awoke, packed up, and all of a sudden my water proof bag&#8230;.well&#8230;.it&#8217;s no longer water proof. Quick fix with gorilla tape (kindly lent from Tracy&#8230;so shout out to Big Jim for the great gift! Thank you!) and a plastic bag and we&#8217;re off on the days adventure.

    We start off and immediately it starts to poor. Going down the freeway at 75mph with the rain pelting your helmet; not so easy to see (Oh well, what are you going to do?).

    On the days plan was a nice dirt road that would have taken us to our desired camp spot, but because of the rain the nice trail turned into a muddy massacre. We gathered up and began the treacherous trail. It became worse and worse as we rode along. The group stopped for a discussion and because of the conditions (and Brian&#8217;s whining) we unanimously decided the streets were the desired way to go. Our new route had a lunch stop in Pink Mountain where we could warm up and eat, so that also swayed our decision quite a bit. After the break and the luscious steak sandwich specials, we were back on the road.

    More and more riding until we came to a small camp ground in the middle of nowhere.

    Andy Bailey Campground

    This was a beautiful little camp situated right on a lake. So of course, being the only girl on the trip, I need my showers at a more rapid pace than these other folks, and I decided I was going to check out the lake to see if it was clean enough to bathe in. Kevin and I walked down to the water&#8217;s edge and felt the water, which to our surprise was quite warm.

    I scream up to the boys excited of my finding and Brian and Jeff offer to do the same and shower with me. We all three put on our suits and the group then follows to watch as we freeze in the lake (It was chilly, but surprisingly warm for the north of British Columbia).

    The shower was very refreshing and it is always nice to meet locals who were fishing and swimming on the lake.

    After our nice bath, we head on back to camp for yet another gourmet camping dinner. Dinner cooking is always a blast with lots of laughs, as Brian and Jeff try to decide who&#8217;s making their meal for two, Kevin and Jeffrey bicker over who had a certain utensil last, I and Tracy of course cook our own meals, and Trailboss (Steve) just mooches off whoever will give him any of their extra food. Just classic as this takes place about every day. We clean up and do our dishes. Some of us head to bed after the long day and others stay at the fire drinking brandy (which Steve loved) and whiskey (Jeff and Brian shared&#8230;.of course) chatting it up.

    The following did happen but I was not a witness, I only observed the actions through my tent by listening to all the drama. But as I understand it, two local boys off the reservation (who looked like reservation gang bangers) came over drunk off their asses. Jeff steps right up and offers them some of the booze that they have lying all over. These boys gladly take him up on his offer. They end up taking pictures with Tracy as Jeff sneaks off to bed and leaves Tracy to deal with the two drunkards. Meanwhile, a girl that is supposed to pick them up comes along and yells from the car (that is blaring music) that they need to get in immediately because she is mad and will leave them there if they don&#8217;t. Apparently the other cousin had gotten even more drunk than the other boys and had ruined her night. It was something to hear. Crazy day with all the rain but it turned out to be a great night with not much hassle due to the wetness.

    Day 4 the story from Steve
    The adventure continues! Day 4 completed and 1200 miles in-headed for the bowels of the Arctic. We are in are final day of BC headed for the Yukon tomorrow. Our group is sure missing Dave and hoping he is able to hook up with us around Friday or Saturday-we will see. So many stories to tell. How about the Mission Statement by Kevin , about hearing the Wolf! Will Kevin got his wishes last night around our campfire when our beloved Jeff Conner suddenly bolted and started howling at the moon! Problem is, there is no moon to be seen that night in this part of the world! Jeff is having a grand time with all this!
    Last night we had the best possible camp situation. Camp manager upgraded us to a big group camp with a 30&#8221; X 40&#8217; covered picnic area. With rain in the forecast some of us put our tents up under the covered area, not Missy! Our Missy elected to set her tent up outside & put her M/C under the cover! It poured that night! Missy survived and her bike was dry! Missy is a stud and fits in perfectly with the boys. Little brother Jeffrey is turning into quite the chef. Him & dad are the stir fry experts!
    Loving my PP mighty 690! The BIG blue bag is hanging on. Tomorrow it&#8217;s the hot springs-every day is an adventure with this group!
    Ok time to enjoy the camp fire. Missing family & friends-someones got to do this! Please watch over my little Dana girl-I get worried about this girl-she just has no friends! On with the adventure-Steve in Blue loves Orange!

    We started off early in the morning and stopped in Fort Nelson for breakfast. The waitress could not understand that Tracy wanted an omelet without eggs and cheese, so basically just sautéed vegetables (he is a vegan). The service was terrible and wow&#8230;. one of the worst stops on the trip. After breakfast, it was on the road again. The rest of the day was absolutely fabulous, compared to our morning fiasco. As we rode along today, we saw some spectacular animals that we had hoped to see on this ride. The first animal we came across was a big horned sheep.

    It was sitting on the mountain top, chewing his cud, and just watching us. As we rode along a mountain goat and her baby crossed the road in front of us. The little goat was so cute! Our first gas stop was a little down the road. I had seen a baby caribou but no one believed me. We went back and yes indeed it was a caribou. A real live caribou with thought antlers and everything. He was gorgeous.

    The water was 100 degrees and 107 right next to the output. They had done up the hot spring so it was pretty fancy (with my father, I was expecting and dirty hole in the ground with naked old men), but it turned out to be a great detour in our day. Very refreshing. So we suited back on up and hit the road again. We had passed bison signs earlier but hadn&#8217;t seen anything and were a little skeptical. After we left the hot springs, we immediately understood the herd signs that we had seen earlier. All over the road were tons on bison. Herds and herds of them grazing and doing their thang.

    They were in the middle of the road and after we had watched them awhile, we needed to get back on the road. I proceeded to honk the air horn on the motorcycle and the whole herd began to run across the street. It was a cool sight to see; the huge bison following each other and grazing together.

    Silly Brian got off his bike and took pictures (we hassled him after for being stupe). It was something to see. I had hoped to see a grizzly last year on our trip but wasn&#8217;t that lucky. This was a dream of mine and I&#8217;m so glad that we saw the bears.

    We came to our motel; the Air force Hotel. This hotel was another down side to the ride. We were greeted by a chunky Nazi with a long gray ponytail who answered the door and barked at us to take off our shoes. We were not allowed to wear our shoes in the motel at all (even though the idiot was wearing his shoes as he explained this to us). They had group showers (boys and girls were separate) but still no shoes. Totally nasty! No shoes in the shower or the bathroom. Gross! The owner was crazy, his internet password was welovecanada. Just an interesting experience. And to make the night worse, Jeff and I went to the local laundry mat and did everyone&#8217;s laundry. Some locals came in to see who we were. They were totally wasted. The guy went over to Jeff and the girl came over to me and immediately grabs my hair and goes gaga over it. Creeped me out.

    The guy, Floyd, kept trying to get with me, but I could never understand what he was saying because of his lack of teeth (he had none at all). Good thing I had Jeff there to protect me. Thanks again Jeff! After we had cleaned the laundry and Jeff had fluffed and folded Brian&#8217;s underwear we rode back to the hotel. As we got there the owner was mad at us because it was quiet time, after 10:30. What a crazy day, with lots of good animals to see. More later.

    What a fantastic trip!
    Thanks for the heads up, I will be sure to avoid the Air Force hotel
    when I get up that way. Whose in the mood for some militant weirdo
    after a longs days ride.

    Looking forward to the rest of this trip.:lurk

    Another long day ahead and another early start. I woke up today after using the campground outhouse last night with not one, not two but eight bug bites on my butt. Not a good sign at the beginning of the trip. Today we were taking the Campbell Highway to a small town called Ross River. It was a dirt highway nicely maintained the whole way there.

    As we began early in the morning the dust was up. We had decided, because of the long distances, that we were going to ride as a group of seven today. We took off but, the dust kept us pretty far apart. The rule of thumb, when you ride with a big group is that when you don’t see the guy behind you, you stop and wait, and if he doesn’t come you turn around and figure out what happened. Brian followed me and as usual was being really slow. I stopped to wait and make sure he was okay, but as soon as he was in sight, he immediately came to a halt and turned around. In the back of my mind, I was like oh great….now what? He looked over and stared for a while. As soon as he was done, he turned back around and came riding on up, all excited! As we rode up to the group he was ecstatic. Apparently he had seen a mountain lion. We were all very jealous of his find.

    (not the real picture from Brian, but what he thinks he saw)
    After the commotion subsided, we were back on our way. We stopped at a small lookout for a hot lunch. Everyone got out their stoves and cooked up a warm meal.

    (Steve's bike at the gas station, big ole blue)
    And guess who we met at the gas station (you are not going to believe it). ELVIS PRESLEY! He had also built Graceland II, where he lived with his wife. He instantly fell in love with Tracy’s enthusiasm and Tracy was now stuck. Elvis ran back to Graceland II and brought Tracy a free CD of his. Elvis really wanted us to come and check out the artwork he had done in his house and Tracy told him we were in a hurry and we’d have to stop by on the way back through town (Oh my was he a character!). Off we went, to get on the barge and cross the Mackenzie River.

    We had about 60 miles to go to our camp for the night, Dragon Camp. This was the beginning of the famous Canol Road. It was a spectacular road with amazing views. As we were riding along, we encountered a sudden problem. Because of the recent lightning storms, we were in the middle of a giant forest fire (no joke!). Tracy, Brian, and Steve (the firemen of the group) discussed the situation and Tracy went up ahead to see if it was safe (if not this was the end of the road for us).

    He was gone for a while as we got off our bikes and watched the fire transfer from tree to tree around us. He came back safe and we discussed it once more with the group. The consensus was to ride through it because it would be safe once at our camp, and the fire would no longer be a threat to us there. So, that’s exactly what we did.

    Steve prepared the wood and lit a huge fire. It was great! Best fire so far. Not many animal sightings today, only the mountain lion and a porcupine. Still pretty cool though. Crazy that we were in a natural forest fire. Our camp was safe and by the morning there was no sign of the fire still burning. The nightly rain had probably put it out, which was good for us. Anyways we are all safe and the trip is going great. Everyone is getting along and we long the company of each other and the endless laughs we have each day. Missing the families at home. More to come.

    Map from today, we are still on track
    Tomorrow we make our push north on the Canol Road. We will see how far we can get, we are carrying gas for up to 200 miles north (400 round trip) Wow lot of gas, there have been heavy rains, so it could be hard.

    We started the trip on 6/21/2012, We were unable to get internet connection almost everywhere we went, so we are telling the story live right now. Ok you know what I mean. When we finish the ride, I will give everyone the complete GPS files, all the ride planning documents and maps. So stay tuned, and I hope we can finish the ride.

    Tracy Update Day7,
    We woke up to cloudy skies and cool. Everyone slept great! For the first time during the trip Missy beat Brian to bed. The time of slumber for Missy was 8:00 P.M. Although, Brian did not get the first to bed award this night he still is the reigning champ. Six nights in a row. He was however only 5 minutes behind her for his slumber. The fire we encountered had laid down due to high humidity and no wind. Steve started another great camp fire and we cooked breakfast. We were lucky to find an improvised “Out house” . Excitement soon wore off as we quickly discovered the “Out House” was a front for a mosquito ambush zone.

    We did our best to defend our exposed derriere but, we were outnumbered and massacred. Now we are counting the butt bites to see who gets to carry the calamine lotion. Currently, we have a three way tie between Missy, Jeffery, and Brian. As we started the days ride, the skies shed its tears and watered the road for us, so no dust! What a benefit. As we rode to roads end, we encountered a huge Grizzly Bear. The bear was more scared of us than we were of him. Good thing for the bear. Kevin keeps his bear spray at his side like a quick draw expert kinda like Dirty Harry.

    As he stared the bear down, he was herd saying “feeling lucky bear”. Saving the group and playing the encounter down, we started moving again. As we kept riding, we came across many junk yards of abandoned trucks that were left along the side of the road. Now part of the landscape of rust and moss.

    The trucks were left here at the start of WW II. Back on the gas and moving, we came across a large porcupine that took also, scampered into the landscape. As we crossed from the Yukon Territory to the Northwest Territory we were met by a washed out bridge and a fast deep flowing river.

    This stopped our continuance to roads end. Back tracking 33 miles we found a beautiful place to camp we a great vista of high peak with small glaciers abiding them. In the foreground, massive pastures of tundra grass.

    Now we wait to see if the Moose and Caribou will come down to graze. Tonight will be our best opportunity to see Wolfs, if at all. Enroute to our camp site we found a bag in the road with two cans of Bear Spray in it. One was empty the other had spray to give. Dirty Harry with the found can of 44 magnum spray proceeded to show why it was the most powerful bear spray can in the world capable of stinging a Grizzly’s eyes for at least 10 seconds. We all just watched with amazing excitement as Missy showed us her skills.

    At this point we are all nervous. Then half the group are heading down to the river that flows past the meadows. Don’t, worry, Moms, Wife’s and Boyfriends, they took their trusty can of “Bear Spray” the only problem is that they left Kevin (Dirty Harry) behind. I can only hope that Jeff and Brian don’t get too excited about a bear encounter and end up spraying each other.

    Missy Update Day 7
    This morning we woke to an easy day of riding. We were going to take the Canol Road as far as we could go. In doing the research on this portion of the ride, there was not much to be found. The last time someone had taken this road was a KLR in 1997 who had had lots of problems with washouts and broken bridges. Our hope was that we would make it to the Mackenzie Pass and see the beautiful landscape on the way. We headed out and the road was unbelievable.

    Canada has done a great job maintaining the landscape and the territory was gorgeous. As we rode through the wonderful forests and mountains, a grizzly ran out in front of my dad. He pulled over to tell me and so we slowly maneuvered on ahead. The bear was scared and doubled back across the road. It was the coolest thing I had ever seen. He was HUGE! As big as Kevin on the motorcycle. Bigger than what you imagine them to be. He was so fat, as he ran his whole body convulsed because of the weight he was carrying. It was amazing and I was so excited. I began to lead the pack and we came across another porcupine. This one I was lucky enough to see. He was waddling on the side of the road, and as soon as we pulled up he scurried into the bushes. I don’t know if I’ve ever seen a porcupine in real life either. He was pretty cute waddling along like he did. We rode along and came to an abandoned house.

    We stopped there and had another hot lunch. It was cold and a little rainy, so it was nice to get off the bikes and warm up. After lunch we had about 15 miles to the Mackenzie Pass. So far so good. We headed on and made it through the pass. Not long after we came to the sign of yet another border. We had officially passed through the Yukon and were entering the Northwest Territories.

    That was a very impressive sign to see. We rode along a little further and our journey down the Canol Road ended with a washed out bridge that had never been repaired. We took pictures and contemplated swimming across the flowing river with our bikes to ride further. We decided that was probably not smart.

    We headed back to the Northwest Territory border and took pictures with the big sign. A pretty cool accomplishment I’d say. As our trail had come to an end, it was time to turn around and head to find a suitable camp for the night.

    Tracy had seen a great camp and led the way to our destination. It was a different abandoned old house that we were to spend the night at. All the firewood we would need. Level tent pitching areas. An outhouse filled with mosquitoes. And a great picnic table for cooking dinner. What more could you ask for? We all unloaded our bikes and the boys started appetizers. They made corn meal patties with spices, and potatoes in the fire. It was great. We all chipped in and had a potluck dinner. I had run out of clean drinking water at lunch, so my father loaned me an extra bottle he had. Unknowingly, I used this “water” to cook my macaroni. The noodles tasted a little sweeter than normal but I had thought that was because it was a new kind of macaroni I was trying. Later Jeffrey pointed out to me, my father had accidently purchased lemon flavored water instead of regular water, and that was why my food tasted so sweet. Silly me. But it was funny! Steve made another big fire, better than the previous nights. It was fabulous.

    Chuck and Larry cooked dinner together as Jeffrey and Kevin fought over how the meal should be cooked. On the road earlier, we had come across a bag that someone must have dropped. It contained two bottles of extra bear spray. We decided to try them out and see what we would have to do if we actually came across a bear. It was crazy how far those things shot. We were very safe and no bears were hurt in the testing of this spray. These boys are so fun to be around. I am having the time of my life. We all oood and awwwd over the spectacular landscape.

    Canol Road: from gpsKevin
    From Ross River north to the Northwest Territories the road is maintained and in good condition, but once you enter the Northwest Territories the road is no longer maintained, the first bridge is washed out and the stream/river can be bad. So if you are really going to ride further, come with small bikes and be prepared to get wet. I am sure that this road will be one of the highlights of our trip

    Kind of confused about the bold part above, the road is somewhat maintained by the Yukon Government (IE the Moose Creek bridge and the Itsi Creek bridge were rebuilt in 2011) and it is pretty well travelled by quads etc. up to Godlin lakes. There is also a big Canol Road thread here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=729638

    These guys made it the whole way to Norman Wells in August (but on the pedal bike variety): http://yukonfrolics.blogspot.ca/2012/08/bikepacking-north-canol-heritage-trail.html

    As we are riding along, Tracy&#8217;s chain falls off and needs a quick tightening. Easy solution and back on the road to do a proper fix up at the house we are staying in tonight. Traveling down the road again, my dad and I see another very large grizzly run across the road. It is amazing how big those animals can get. We make it to the ferry crossing just in time for the last ferry before an hour lunch break. Jeff and Brian are behind and as the ferry starts to leave they show up. The guy was nice enough to pull back up so they could catch a ride with us.

    Another experience at the Ross River gas station, and then a grocery store run at the local convenience store (Jeff and Brain push around a cart for their groceries. Brian pushes the cart as Jeff gets a ride in the cart. Those two&#8230;.hahah). After we had stocked up on the needed food for the next three days, we headed over to Elvis&#8217;s Graceland II as promised.

    What an experience&#8230;.ahahha! He showed us his artwork which was absolutely terrible. It was colored stucco that he had basically splattered all over Graceland II. It was a mess and looked foul. Not to mention the horrifying stench that appeared once you entered the home. That was a funny experience. We got group pictures outside Graceland II but Elvis would not be a part of our fun due to his lack of costume at that current time. Big Jim and Elvis were taking our pictures and we were being really funny (what&#8217;s new?). On the road again, just can&#8217;t wait to get on the road again, going places where I&#8217;ve never been&#8230; oh wait&#8230;.the story (haha); just about an hour drive to Faro. On the way we encounter another bike problem, this one a bit more serious. Jeffrey&#8217;s bike suddenly comes to a screeching halt and will no longer start.

    The group consensus is to tow him to the house and pull it apart there to see what the issue is. We eventually come to Faro and arrive at our stay for the night. It is a beautiful three story home with a game room, tv and endless DVD&#8217;s, and a warm shower. This will be a great night.

    Outside the story is not so great. Jeffrey begins to pull apart the bike and low and behold, a balancer has broken off and is stuck in the head (most of you probably don&#8217;t know what that means&#8230;.well I don&#8217;t really know what that means, they just told me that&#8217;s what happened). This is a really bad sign; the bike is totaled.

    Jeffrey and the rest of the boys are currently discussing options as to what he is going to do, while I write to tell the tale. Send good wishes to Jeffrey, hopefully he gets to continue on. I am leaving now to go out and hear the plan. It&#8217;s not looking promising for Jeffrey. He will probably have to be sent home and not be able to finish the ride. I&#8217;ll keep you updated as the plans unfold.

    Day 8 Update from Kevin

    Wow this is bad, the Kawasaki KLR650 has broken the advance weight off the end of the cam, it got wedged under the cam, then forced the cam up out of its bearings breaking the bearing cap and sending the pieces out the top of the motor

    There will be no fix for this bike without a complete new head. WOW
    There will be no fixing it here in Faro. The nearest next place is Whitehorse 200 miles away. The local owner of the house we are staying in said that we might catch the delivery truck driver in 2 days and ask if we could put the bike in his truck for his return trip to Whitehorse. Wow Wow way bad news for us, this could end our trip. We bought this bike just for this ride because it seemed to have a reputation of being reliable. Maybe some new ideas will come to us as we sleep tonight.
    Evening at the house now has kind of a somber note. But we asked the owner if she could find us some moose sausage, and 15 minutes later she brought us a bunch, so it was a bar-b-que and a bit to drink, maybe it was a bit too much or just out attitude, because missy then talked all the men into Face Packs, yes really!

    Maybe she knew what she was doing, because it was good to put a smile back on our faces.
    At the end of the day she introduced us the the Chubby Bunny game. Wow now we are out of control.

    Ok the morning has arrived and there the dreaming of solutions has yielded nothing, so the only option we can come up with is to TOW the KLR brhind to Yamaha Tenere some 200+ miles to Whitehourse, wow what could go wrong with that idea. Well we are both skilled and we think we can do it. Once in Whitehourse maybe we can find someone to help fix the bike.

    And so we were up early and off we went, just the two of us, the rest of the group would continue on and we would try to join back up with them.
    Towing was not too bad at first, we at times managed to get up to 60mph, then it happened. The thing I had wanted the most, a Wolf revealed himself to me. Yes that is right he ran right in front of me without even giving me a look. I knew this was a good sign, we would be all right.

    From Missy Day 9
    Because of the major troubles we encountered yesterday, Jeffrey and Kevin set off very early in search of a fix. They were headed to White Horse to see if they could rent a truck to drive to Inuvik. That way everyone would still be able to make the ride. So, they began the long tow journey of about 250 miles to White Horse. As for the rest of the group, me and the guys, we had a very relaxing and refreshing day. The house we stayed in had a big breakfast bar and we could make omelets, or whatever we desired. Our riding day was pretty short, so we decided to leave at 9am which was late for our other early starts. We leisurely rode from Faro to Carmacks.

    After our break and snacks it was on the road again. Our next stop was about an hour or so away, where we would get gas and fill up our bikes. We talked to some other riders at the gas station who had ridden from southern Florida. They were very nice. Down the road a little, we had passed a little hot dog stand sort of gig. We got back on the bikes and headed over to lunch there. They had a mess hall where we could eat lunch away from the bugs. It even had wireless Internet. Jeff and I got ice cream once we were done with lunch. It was maple walnut flavor and very delicious.

    Our stay for the night was at the Moose Lodge. We left lunch and were on our way to the camp ground. It was very gloomy and cold at this point and it started to rain. We came along another small coffee stand and we stopped to warm up and drink some hot coffee to prepare us for the finish of the day.

    We finally made it to the Moose Lodge. Tracy and Steve had a small cabin for the night. Jeff, Brian and I were deciding what to do. We asked the owner of the Moose Lodge if we could camp right out front of their cabin. Instead she gave us a much better deal. She offered us this covered area that she had, that would also keep the mosquitoes away. We took the deal because it was just perfect for our tents to be set up. It was great with a usable stove and hot showers. Just as we had figured out our sleeping arrangements, Jeffrey and Kevin pull up in a rental truck with great news. They were able to find a truck in White Horse, and leave the broken motorcycle behind. So, not only would they both be able to continue to Inuvik but they would also have room for some of the bags we had been carrying in the truck. What a great fix to such a huge problem. Brian coined a new name for Tracy and Steve; they are now the golden girls. It was a great night. Jeff, Brian and Jeffrey made dinner for Kevin and I cooked my own macaroni. Another night filled with jokes and laughs. This group fits so well together. We just get along so well together. More later as we start the Dempster Highway to Inuvik tomorrow.

    From Steve:
    Now I need to address some truths about Day 9. Missy had her say about what went on at our Moose Camp Lodging. What do they say?&#8221; never let the truth interfere with a good story&#8221;! Truth is, our leader Kevin was not with us (in Whitehorse with Jeffrey & KLR) to direct the boys on where their camp area would be, this caused major problems for Jeff, Brian, & Missy. Here is the picture-it&#8217;s been raining on us all day, it&#8217;s cold. All of us walk into the lodge office-restaurant, dripping wet. A lady comes out of the kitchen and asked if she can help us, Chuck & Larry (this is what Missy & Jeffrey call Jeff & Brian. Their nicknames come from the Adam Sandler movie about the suito gay NY firefighters. Chuck asks where is the campground area? The lady responds with &#8220;we are not a campground, just cabins & a restaurant. Things started getting real tense-steam was coming off gortex-Kevin&#8217;s name was used in vain a few times. I had made a reservation few months back for a cabin and knew that the actual campground was about a mile down the road. Things really heated up with Miaja the owner came into the room and asked if there was a Steve in our group? I told her that was me. Maija said great! Your cabin is all ready, with the wood stove on and the goose down comforters ready. And then she said&#8221; Prime Rib tonight&#8221;, kitchen closes down in an hour, so hurry with your showers. Now Chuck, Larry, Missy are really spinning! They ask Maija if they could pitch their tents next to our cabin? Maija says OK, but feeling for the wet boys, she offers up a large partially enclosed gazebo for their use. The boys jump all over this, and it even has a kitchen attached. All worked great for groups. Tracy & I even picked up the tap for our gazebo dwellers. My goose down comforter was actually too hot-the chocolate on the pillow was outstanding.

    Great report !!Keep it coming!!

    I am glad you saw a wolf.I love wolves also and hope to see some in the wild .Maybe next year in the Upper Penninsula of Michigan I can spot some.

    Too bad about the KLR.Has any service been done like adjusting the valves in the past?
    Maybe the cam caps did not get tightened properly during a valve adjust.
    It looks like the cam cap bolts loosened and allowed the cam to ride up in the back and allow the decompression mechanism to kiss the valve cover and explode.

    Good luck with the KLR,at least its a simple bike and parts are pretty cheap.
