I LEAVE SUNDAY MORNING, JULY 30
I have not been talking about this much because – well – talked it to death last time and then it fell apart four days in.
That won’t happen this time.
My back is in good shape – better than it has been in 6 years.
My leg no longer bothers me when I walk and it is stronger than it has been since I wrecked it 6 years ago.
My spirits are high.
My expectations are much lower and more realistic. I have made no plans other than the first evening camping spot.
Phoenix to Panguitch, UT.
That’s 450 miles and I am getting an early start. I will have some weather to ride through going north, but nothing too bad on the radar.
I plan on taking some photos along the way so I am guessing more like 10 – 11 hours for the trip – not all on the bike of course.
The second day I would like to do about the same mileage which should put me just west of Idaho Falls. Camp grounds may be tough to find so if they are getting full, I may pull up short a bit in order to get a space.
My goal is to do some 400 – 450 mile days in the beginning in order to have some 300 mile days in the Rockies and Yukon.
Prospected second day.
More to come.
I will be updating this blog with travel stories and photographs and videos as long as there is wi-fi. When there isn’t, they will be uploaded as a set.
Thanks for riding along with me.
