Richard, that day three boarder crossing is a limited hour type of crossing, so beware.
On your day two route from Baker City route yourself thru Sumpter and Ukiah great stuff. When I went to the first NAFO with escapefjrtist and MCRider007 they took me thru there, a great ride.
Remember half the fun is getting there, and the other half is getting back!

Thanks, Matt. Bookmarked! Looks like my planned entry and exit ports are 24 hour -- purely luck in the routing.

May see you along the way, Richard... here is a first round, very rough draft of my plan for the trip up:

Day 1 - Redding
Day 2 - Bend (Klamath Falls / Crater Lake visit)
Day 3 - Spokane
Day 4 - into Castlegar

I may add a day or two in there to sightsee a bit, etc. and am always open to adjustments for better roads. B)

We are just south of Bend and would be glad to put you up and perhaps follow you on the way north. I would be glad to show you around the fossil beds on the way

Here's what it's looking like so far: Leaving Saturday morning, June 16. Saturday night in Caldwell, ID. Sunday night in Missoula, MT. Monday night in Radium Hot Springs, BC. Tuesday night in Jasper, AB. Wednesday night in Revelstoke, BC. Three days in Castlegar. Followed by three days molesting WA mountain passes on the way south, one day down the OR coast, and then home from northwest Cali.

So, kinda PUI, BWTFO...

In best scenario, I have $$ to make this happen..
Truck, camper, trailer to LP, OreyGone to a certain fellows la casa with el Grande shop.
Drop off one KZ1300, park the rig, then head north on??

Oh jeesh - now it gets strange. Is KrZy8 down and out for the count? If so, then heading to Cgar financially not so good. Ride the Harley? Wabs? Drop the trailer and just truck/camper up to Cgar? Should know more about KrZy8 next weekend.

Jeesh, and in the other thread I gave King Richard crap about driving his Audi to the East coast.. :blink:
