    Need to get out there, but having trouble finding rallies close to home to commit to for next year.

    Trying to line up 4-5 for next summer. I am in Edmonton Alberta Canada, but will drive 12-18h if necessary.

    See this article. This is exactly my wheelhouse...these type of events....except wrong continent.

    Suggestions of good ones? Or, are there even that many of this type round where I am?

    Cheers

    Have you heard of HUMM? There is one in Nakusp every year. Not quite what you're looking for but close. Google HUMM Monashees.

    This looks awesome! Not quite a roadbook nav rally, but close enough considering there are none around looks like. I will try to go to this.

    Just did the KTM Adventure Rally at Silver Star, I have done the Humm a few times as well.

    The KTM event was awesome, The "R" class was challenging. very well done event.

    I liked the Humm as well, you could choose the level of difficulty you wanted to ride.

    The Wanduro guys (From Calgary) sound like they will have an event next year as well, I'm pretty sure it will be a fairly challenging ride as well.
