It starts Sat the 27th, July. I couldn't bring myself to buy the 55$ weekend package, but I did sigh up for 2 nights camping. I have 3 more days to pack and see what goes where.....packing the DR for the solo ride is where all the indiscision is eating at me now as i'm planning to camp most of the way. Saturday I'll ride up and look at Georgia Pass 50 miles away. If I can make it over the top, I'll drop into Breckenridge and go back thru Alma. https://www.google.com/search?q=geo...=X&ei=6fgKUI_fJo2A2QWF4ZgZ&ved=0CHcQsAQ&biw=1 Then Sunday I'll ride down to ADVrider, LD's place near Westcliffe, (less than a 100 miles), and leave my tow bike, then, leaving Monday morning, I'll ride the DR down to Antelope wells to Start the CDR. By freeways it's over a thousand miles, but by back roads and some dirt it is only like 750. That'll take 2 days no doubt. http://tinyurl.com/cvprq53 On the way north I may take in BigDogs 2012 RMAR weekend in Silverton The following weekend... http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=736276 I might not get there in time for that one.... Then I should be back to Westcliffe to put a new rear tire on the rear. I'll know a lot more about Noodles and tubeless tires at that time. For those that don't know I've converted my spoke rims to Tubeless (the cheap way), and have a pool noodle in the back one....should be interesting. Then it's off to ride the northern part of the continental Divide. If all goes well, I'll be accompanied by LD for a few days. The 10 day forecast only predicts 100* temps at the lower altitudes, and not much chance of rain... Luck beats good. Hopefully I'll be able to keep you all up to date as I ride along. This isn't going to be a speed burner. After all I'm retired, and time doesn't mean squat to me these days.
