Back in early July I took on the COBDR solo on my 690 Enduro. I wanted to get this thread started now as I'm getting videos from that trip completed and I can update this as I finish them. The trip down to Cortez, CO was pretty uneventful, because of COVID the Four Corners area was closed so I planned to start the trip from Cortez directly. One thing I had done which was slightly unusual was I planned on navigating using road books I created on Rally Navigator. I had wanted to do this on my AZBDR trip in May but hadn't gotten the controller in time for my tablet. I won't really speak to this much more as it worked perfectly and created no problems. Day One: Cortez to Browns Gulch This was originally planned to be just the first stage of the COBDR with a campsite at Mary E Campground just outside of Telluride. The riding was pretty mellow, Boggy Draw was very dry and dusty resulting in my first fall of the trip after I got cross rutted in a sand filled rut. Otherwise beautiful riding and easy progress until just outside of Telluride when I caught up to a rainstorm. Muddy conditions made it fairly challenging to the road and I ate lunch at the gas station near Telluride and waited for the storm to pass. After an hour or so I headed back to the Mary E campground and found it had been closed and locked due to COVID (somebody explain how closing a distributed campsite helps with social distancing?). So instead I continued towards Ophir hoping to find a stealth campsite for the night. Unfortunately basically everything in that stretch is private property with regular signs reminding you NO CAMPING. Eventually I just decided to continue up and over Ophir, knowing it goes into national forest and dispersed camping after the summit. Ophir was challenging but fun, I had to stop three or four times on the west face to wait for 4x4's and traffic was overall fairly heavy considering it was 4th of July. The loose rock didn't disappoint but I was able to make the summit without any trouble. I hung out there for thirty minutes or so and then prompted by ominous clouds moving in behind me headed down to try and find a campsite. Thankfully I found a nice pullout near the trailhead at the base of Ophir and set up camp just as the rain/hail started. That storm moved through before too long and I spent the afternoon chatting with other campers and enjoying the scenery. We even had a juvenile moose run through camp after being spooked by a fisherman near the creek.
