On the way back from Alaska last year Nuke65 and I started talking a trip to Newfoundland this year. Spent some time over the winter making plans and working routes, but Newfoundland is closed and some states on the way would require us to quarantine. So on to plan B. MikeLM15 and Old Can Ride have asked to join us which would make me the third oldest Social Security recipient on the trip. Events are trying to interfere, but hopefully they can both make it. Plans are to leave southeast Tennessee on Aug 29 and take 3 weeks on a route that will resemble the map below. Plan to camp as much as possible for easier social distancing. Some of route is to allow Nuke and I to fill in our states ridden too map, and thus the trek across Nevada to clip the corner of Oregon and California. National parks all seem to be open but campgrounds within parks closed. Forest Service and BLM campgrounds seem to mostly be open and we have made reservations to cover Labor Day weekend near Moab, UT. Pikes Peak will not allow riding the last 3 miles to top due to rebuilding the parking lot. One can take a shuttle bus the last few miles. Highlights on our list include Million Dollar Highway, Pikes Peak, Canyonlands, Arches, Capitol Reef, Bryce Canyon, Zion, North Rim Grande Canyon. With this as a general guide we will daily be checking closures and state rule changes and adjust accordingly. We will make reservations a couple days ahead to ensure a place to sleep. That said a number of the campgrounds we have checked are first come first served.
