Rather than continue posting separate threads on my various dirt biking adventures, I thought I would start a single thread that contains all of my moto-camping trip reports. So, if you are interested in following along, please 'watch' this thread. If you are interested in following along on all of my adventures (river trips, day dirt biking rides, family vacations, equipment reviews, technology reports, etc.), then subscribe to my family blog. I also have a video channel on both Vimeo and YouTube, which are usually referenced from my blog. First, a little about me. I am an old man. But I still love to ride dirt bikes - especially with my family (hence, "Gardiner Family Adventures"). As a teenager, my family had a couple of small Yamaha dirt bikes that we would often take on our camping trips. Here is a short video of my brother and I riding the Slickrock trail near Moab back in 1970, shortly after the trail was created. When my oldest son turned 14, I determined it was time to get back into dirt biking and share this experience with my family. All of my children have enjoyed dirt biking, and my wife sometimes tags along on her ATV. For the most part, it is now just me and my two youngest children on most of the adventures. For years we did day trips - mostly around Utah. We would also do an extended trip to southern Utah during spring break when our kids were out of school. We took the easy way and stayed in motels where the kids could swim and the parents could take a shower. Eventually, we decided it was time to try dual sport riding, so we made our bikes street legal and the kids all got their motorcycle license. To test this out, my daughter and I did a one-day dual sport ride up Big Cottonwood Canyon and returned via American Fork Canyon. My featherweight daughter did really well on our old, heavy DR-Z400. My intent is to provide a short summary of my adventures in this thread. If you are interested in the 'long version', take a look at my blog. Here is a link to our dual sport ride report, complete with photos and videos.
