Update - is coming I've been planning a trip for three years and at the last minute my crew was decimated by surgeons and lawyers. I'll be leaving from Bend, Oregon by the end of September and would prefer it not to be solo. Allowing 3 to 4 weeks. It is a 3800 mile loop following the drainage divide of the Great Basin. It is 80% dirt and a number of the legs are over 200 miles between gas. I believe the longest is 275 miles. Longer than any BDR and the CDT. No single track but there is a route waiting to be drawn which could be the ultimate single track. It will be pretty much all primitive camping. Basically from Bend, it follows the mountains up to John Day Or and from there mountains and desert to McDermitt NV. McDermitt to Jarbidge south to near Wells. From there up to Oakley Idaho, across to Downey, Idaho and Montpelier, Idaho (where Butch Cassidy got his start). Over to Wyoming and follow the mountains east of Cokeville due south to the Uinta Mountains. It follows the crest of the Wasatch mountains south to near Zion and cuts across to Ely, Nv. Then south to Las Vegas in a really roundabout way and from there to Death Valley. Then north to Lassen area and into Oregon and north to Bend. I planned this time for leaving because the parts of the trail through Utah get up to almost 11,000 ft. They don't open until the first week in August and winter usually starts in October though you can get snow in August and September. But in August it can be 130 degrees in Death Valley. I have the entire thing broken down into individual tracks in gpx and kmz as well as 500 individual nav points. This is the drainage outline These are the dirt portions (blue) and I've filled in some of the gaps since I made this pic. And as a follow up I made and entirely paved route. This covers the south end of the loop. My offroad routefinding failed in Southern California. It was either going to be riding a road to where you die an agonizing pointless death in a biblical wilderness or you are cruising through endless agribiz, strip malls, gang graffiti, and patio misters, not to mention the largest cesspool in the world. So I made a beeline to Death Valley. There are some things worse than death. Update pics... Modified since I made these.
