Just outside of here.
This is the trail that washed out just north of Mass City. It was right after the tressels.
Yes, so we started a day before you guys. We rode five days, only 1025 miles. We followed the original CCC UPDSS gps routes. Starting at the Model Towne Inn in Gwinn. Picked up your fresh tracks outside Newberry! Thanks for finding the lines over all those downed trees. See you next year!
Has anyone heard from Cowboy, and how he's healing?
Cowboy, are you out there? How are your ribs healing?
What kind of range is needed up there? Say for a ride like CT III. I can do about 90 miles before I hit reserve. Are there enough gas stations around?
Also I beleive Sept is a good month to go, less bugs?
I've got the gas stops and distances between on a handout. The longest gap is 76 miles. If that is a problem, there is a potential gas stop a little off route that can fill the gap.
But, in the UP there are sometimes little problems like gas stops that don't have gas available or that are closed down unexpectedly so an MSR fuel bottle is handy.
September is fine. Keep in mind that we got caught with 36 degree temps one morning in August. Early in the season bugs can be troublesome in some areas, but you never know.
I am hosting two iterations next season in June. If you are interested in joining one of the groups, PM. Nineteen riders is a hoot on this thing!
....:huh..... looked at the pics.... you guys are MENTAL!!!!!!
Talk to me in June.
This season I am planning to offer two iterations. Looks like some of your fellow countrymen from Ontario are making the trip.

Looks like fun, :eek1
I going to have to do this route,
but at my much slower pace
Hey Uneasy Rider! Great Video! Thanks for posting! How are you? I've had a rough go of it this summer- a 16yr old kid pulled out in front of me and the bike stopped and I kept going over the hood. By only the grace of God was I ok, but the bike is dead. I ended up getting a replacement KLR. Dirthammer hit a deer this year, too, (at midnight, 53mph was the gps recorded speed), and again, only by the grace of God did he walk away from that- the deer wasn't so lucky. Again, he has a replacement bike too- a 1200 GS-adventure. Whoo hoo! We hope to join all of the Cannontrek folks in the next year or so!!
Keep the rubber side down! (more than I did in CTIII! :huh)
