I will probably take the quick way to Castlegar. I-5 from Calif to 97 into Oregon and 395 most of the rest of the way.

Quick there, but more time after. Considering Alaska (Hyder-Stewart), up the Cassiar into Watson Lake and back down the Alcan. Maybe ride Beartooth pass and some of that country again and work my way back to Minkler in time to rest up and get ready for the SW-FOG.

The question is can my old body rise to the occasion and once more "on to the road."

Be careful on 395 North of Kettle Falls, that is where one of the PNW crew and his wife hit a deer and went into the lake, they where told that part of 395 has the highest deer strikes in the US.

There are rooms at Chez Chorel (i.e. - my place) in Calgary prior to the rally and we plan on a "Prep Day" on the weekend prior. Oil changes, Tire changes, new farkle installs, etc...
Feel free to stop by if you can work it into your schedule.

Now that I have a job, my plan is to head out on the direct route bright and early Thursday AM. Lucky for me, all roads to Castlegar are fun! :D
Registration will start sometime after I get there! Posted Image

I general plan from Seattle will be comming over on the N Cascade Hwy 20 to Kettle Falls then take 25 up into BC.


Pretty much this, though maybe not at the same time or pace... ;)

I'm sorry, but I actually ride a Super Tenere now... ;)

I'm going to ride west and then turn right. I'd like to go up through Michigan and pick up route 2 but I won't do it if snow is likely. I'll just have to wait until we get close to the day of departure before making my plans.

I thought I'd get up early, ride for a couple of hours. Have lunch, ride for a couple more hours and then check in to the hotel. Wish it was a little farther away. ;)

Well, roughly, our trip will go like this...VA, KY, MO, OK, NM, AZ, UT, CO, ID, MT, BC. The return trip will take us down through the Dakotas. Not sure exactly where from there to home.

No fancy signature line. Too many meets to try and keep up with the icons.

I wouldn't change a fucking thing; I've lived hard, played hard, and I ain't done yet. I've paid some severe penalties along the way, but the rewards have been so much greater; even if for just have participating in the game of life with utmost abandon. It's not who rides the furthest in a day, but rather in a lifetime. CBA member #1, IBA #31845 and very proud of both.
