Who needs a fancy billboard when an old tank will do ...
A sign for lodging along HoW.
Maybe we’ll see ya on the trail. Starting from Meeker September 19 headed clockwise. Have a great trip!
Yep Yep! I'm doing section 5 of bdr from Gypsom, then hanging a left somewhere to pick up h.o.w., also going clockwise hope to see you guys!
I'm out on the route now. It was smoky in Idaho, but gorgeous today in Montana!
We found that the last week of August '21 alternated between smoky, clear and hazy along HoW's Montana sections. The vague silhouette in the far distance is the Continental Divide ...
At day's end, there were sunsets ...
Followed by clear (and cold!) mornings ...
The message and lesson being: Wildland travel is like a box of chocolates.
The 2021 season for Heart of the West ADV Route will end soon, even though these autumn days are invitingly cool, mostly dry, and bug-free. Despite all that is going on in the world, it has been a good season.
So, we soon will turn our attention to inspecting HoW's exhilarating (and challenging, in places) Southern California Connector, a major GPS-guided wildland journey in its own right ... across the Mojave Desert to the Grand Canyon to Bears Ears to Moab and, finally, to HoW's unparalleled web of interconnected loops.
HoW's Southern California Connector -- like its Northern California Connector -- is one of a number of routes that we've link together to conveniently extend HoW's reach from Canada to Mexico, and (depending on wildfire impacts), from the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Ocean.
I thought some of you guys would like to read the report I put up on Expo Portal. I always wanted to do this when I was riding. But that didn’t work out. So was finally able to put it together this past September. Will probably finish up the rest of it next year.
We met up with Tony while passing through Idaho Falls. What an honestly nice guy! This trip is all,and more,than he says it is.
If I was riding the loop, I’d make sure to bring enough warm clothes, waterproof riding and camping gear. Snow in the high country and a couple wet, cold nights told me it was time bag it for the this year. Guess I’m not as resilient as I once was.
So if you’re sitting on the fence just get off Your butt and do it.
It was a pleasure to at last meet you and your group, Dale. It was a long time in the works, with obstacles to overcome (Covid, wildfires, heat, life ...). It took patience, work, and leadership to pull it off. Congratulations!
Well, 2021, with its unprecedented challenges (Covid, wildfires) for wildland travel, is officially a wrap. All of the cows are home.
What I developed more than a decade ago as "Forever West" -- a network of loops that provided a New Jersey group with a convenient alternative to Adventure Cycling's epic north-south Great Divide Mountain Bike Route (a.k.a., the CDT) -- has evolved substantially in every way. It will evolve further this winter as I incorporate input from 2021's travelers. The old Forever West was, well, an OK beginning, but just that. So stay tuned for more refinement for '22. The journey shall continue, better than ever ...
