I was thinking of heading out of Reno and going to WestFest '08 in Lake City, CO via the TAT...spend a day there, maybe two, bum all the beer and parts I could, then turn around and head back to Reno. Had a couple concerns pop into my head as I daydreamed about this... Going East on the Tramsam trail would be opposite of Sam's roll charts. I have a 60csx w/ Topo, and plan to make Routes for each state...but I was hoping to hear from some people who have done the trail chime in about how helpful they feel the charts were vs GPS. I was thinking about reverse engineering them for the trip east...but that would be a lot of work and I lazy. Leaving first week of August, probably could not pick a hotter time of the year. Water consumption and survival concerns creep into my head for NV and UT specifically. I currently have no prospective riding partners. This is obviously still in the dreaming mode, but I didnt think it would hurt to get some opinions and maybe see if anyone was thinking about doing something similar.
