    That is what I was thinking when I crossed US50. A stretch of road of 20 or 30 miles was taking me about 15 or 20 minutes and that same stretch would take a day or 2 in a wagon. They were tough and patient.

    I think it took something like 6-18 months to cross the country!

    Just imagine how daunting some of the obstacles like canyons, mountains, and deserts must have looked like to them. Today, we cross the country with little more effort than it would have taken them to just go in to town for supplies.

    Is there a lot of firm dirt riding in Montana, or is it more loose dirt that requires more negotiating? I prefer the easy firm dirt than something difficult, like something that you can ride on a KLR without special tires.

    Yeah, there is a bunch of it. I'm sure there is a lot of loose riding too, but most of what I rode on the Continental Divide Route was hard pack forest/fire roads.
