    That's a pretty aggressive schedule. It will take you almost a week to get to the Ozarks. To stay on your schedule, you will probably need to cut out some sections in MS and AR. I've got two weeks to go before I head out to Ozarks to continue TAT from last year. Can't wait to get to Colorado and ride the passes and Moab.

    VStromNC, have you considered just starting in Boise city and use the extra time to ride in Moab?

    ButchCoolidge,

    Yeah, I thought about it but our TAT group is set with Mikey Mike starting from Andrews, NC at the end of this week and meeting me near the Ozarks at the end of next week to continue westward and meeting up with a third inmate greentouring99 in Trinidad, CO and continuing TAT.

    Maybe we will see you on the trail.

    Currently enjoying a thunderstorm on Hatteras Island and about to start heading west with the girlfriend on our way-too-big bikes along with a dog. Camping as much as possible looking to eat, drink, and be merry. We're hard to miss. Hope to see some of y'all out there.

    What tracks are you using from Moab to Oregon? Are you going through Nevada? I'm trying to decide if I going through Nevada or up to Idaho. Looks like Sams Idaho route would take longer. I'll be short on time.
