    checking in on your van thread and seeing you'll be taking a enclosed trailer/garage. How long do you plan to be on the road, and will you take the tire changer and or compressor with you.

    BTW, Nice pics..

    I plan on being on the road about 3 months before I head back to FL for a few weeks...then I'll head out again. Not taking the tire changer....but...I bet I could make a fortune if I had it at D2D :-)

    Beer is expensive up there too. Could probably stay drunk with all the requests.

    Looks like I'll be seeing ya down at the 3 step 5/1/19! I'll be in Arches/Moab the two days prior and had an extra day to fill on my itinerary before heading west. Just submitted a request for a tee-pee! Cause why not? This place looks awesome after seeing it in your previous RR. I'm coming down from Seattle on my Super Tenere just to ride southern Utah and surrounding areas for the first two weeks in May next year.

    Not by choice, only by poor decision(s)

    That’s really like 4 whole days effectivly. Even in perfect weather wouldn’t it be 2 days up and 2 days back? Last June I arrived 1/2 day late and lost my spot...if you were to get back from Tuk later than anticipated, they may still not have a spot for your extended time??? I would look into tat with GR CG.

    With the van I can go anywhere and camp before or after D2D....I don't have any schedule or place to be...I can camp on any Crown land in the area if I want also...should not be a problem at all...maybe Uli would let me park in at the Bunkhouse too :)

    Really wish I could triple "like" this. Starting to feel a serious tug.

    Well...we have plenty of time...get a van....then throw your bike in the back and we can caravan up to Dawson City together....will be really comfortable putting in the miles back up to the north again with the vans :-)

    Dave,

    You kids need to be nicer to the old people. With luck, you will be old one day also. :-)
