2017 Adventure

Well, I'm about halfway into the plans for next summer's journey across this large piece of real-estate called Canada and the US. I'm leaving here on the 5th of July and heading east to Niagara Falls. Solo ride there, Cindy is flying to Toronto and meeting me at our hotel on the Saturday, 8th. Spending Sunday seeing the sites and then riding down to PA to visit Fossil, and hopefully see some of the eastern crew wherever we can fit it in. She's flying back on the 16th and I'm trekking back across the Northern States. Going to try and see as much as I can in a week; dunno if I can fit in the Beartooth or not though but it's in the want list. Have to stop in Iowa to look up some of Dad's family history and would like to roll through the Black Hills and Wyoming (Devil's Tower, Crazy Horse, Yellowstone) depending on time and such.
So far I have the eastern legs mapped and accommodations reservations made. Working on routing and stops for the return journey now. Rumor has it it's going to be a long cold winter so I don't want to get too much done too early. Might be lots of nights to sit and plan/re-plan.

That will be very cool. Like you said don't get in a hurry on the planning.

Devil's Tower is still in my bucket but be sure you ride the Black Hills.

Iowa; if you are a Star Trek fan you may want to visit Riverside. It's the future birthplace of James T Kirk.

That would be great Will!
Mark, I'm looking that up now, pretty sure I can run through there on the way to Spencer. I think Jim only grew up there, wasn't he actually born on a Starship?

Yes, we stopped by the Indy Speedway in the summer of 2014 on our way to Niagara Falls. It was very impressive. We actually persuaded a nice security man to allow us to see the inside the of the track.

If by chance your route brings you through Lebanon, Missouri, please stop by for a cold beverage. It would be an honor to meet you in person.

Shouldn't be too hard to work it in. I've printed off more google maps in the last week than you can shake a stick at.
