OK. I am going to digitize some ideas. Please forgive any ramblings or cosmic jive. I'm mapping a route for a minimalist (35lbs of gear), No slab, single track off road, round trip like this: Grand Junction - Gateway - Blanding - Kanab - Grand Staircase - Moab - GJ Experience the essence, and challenge of AdventureEnduro in the mindblowing landscapes and vistas of the SW. Shouldn't be too tough. Endurance, teamwork, intermediate to advance riding skills, and resourcefullness will be key. Could even be completed solo. 5-7 days. Stopping at remote outposts for gas and food...Sleeping in the dirt. Bathing in cold rivers. Primitive camps. etc.. You will loose weight, gain confidence, laugh, cry, curse and be happy to be involved.
