After seeing I will have ~ 6 weeks of vacation in 2013 to use if I want, I am starting to figure out what I want to do for motorcycle trips/camping. Kate has quite a bit less vacation so not all of it will be on trips with her. So I am looking at some more solo adventures this Spring/Summer.
I am entertaining some options like:
- Ship the bike somewhere and go on a ride in some other areas of the country, or up in Canada to Alaska.
- A series of shorter trips around CO, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana.
- Or one big mega trip up to Canada to see a friend up there.
- Go back to Utah to hit up the places I wasn’t able to go this last fall, like The Mokee Dugway, Canyon lands, Moab, Arches NP, Lake Powell, etc… And actually camp this time 🙂
I don’t need to buy much gear for any of this, so the trips are pretty cheap overall… just a question of how much punishment do I want to endure 🙂 (and if I want to invest in some higher end heated upper body gear at some point.)
I am also pondering taking an off-road handling class, and trail riding class at some point this summer.
