Looking at Tuktoyaktuk, with an Alaskan follow-thru.

Plan to make this ride with Randy. Will also make a trip out west or up to the New England states. Then throw in 4 - 6 rally's.

Cool! One of my neighbors did an Alaska fly in and rental ride on 650 Stroms a couple of years ago and loved it.

Take pictures!

I have been heading for retirement and a ride of my life next year for a long time.  I still plan on heading west in late spring and be gone through the COG National rally.   I will miss it but what better reason than a trip like this.  I will wonder NM UT AZ NV CA OR WA ID and maybe head back through Co on the way home.  All on my own time and only if I am enjoying it.

Hope that works out for you and you cover it in detail for all us poor work bound slobs... A couple of us were texting the other night and we got into a wild discussion going about a westward trip from Georgia to the Pacific in 2019. That's on my list and has been since college (1979). I'd sit in class and dream about riding coast to coast starting with the back wheel starting in the Atlantic and the front wheel touching the Pacific at the end. If I'd paid attention in class, maybe I could've retired and done it already.   :))

It's not too late, but time is growing shorter.. Hope it works out for you. Take lots of pictures and tell us lots of stories! ;)  I'll hope to look you up in Texas.

I am leaving winter camp the 4th week of March (2018) to go to Melrose WI. Doing a workamping gig at an RV resort. Its the first time I ever did a work camping gig, so I'll find out if I like it or not.

If anyone happens to be in the Melrose area (I think its near La Crosse) from April-October (minus Sturgis week because thats where I'll be) please stop by and say hello. If you want to camp, I'll have plenty of room for that too.

Planning a big ride at least by my standards around Lake Superior the first week in August with a couple friends.
Hoping to hit Moonshine and another rally or two as well.
It sounds like the Barber Fall Festival is a lot of fun, thinking about that as well.

You need to come to Barber's. We can't even try to explain how good it is. Food, beer, vintage and classic motorcycles, thousands and thousands of motorcycles, Barber Museum, racing, massive flea market, slow races, nightly fire ring, and of course Camp SECOG.

For Barber, you need to decide around July as Lot B Camping Passes will sell out. But what Randy said, definitely a good time.

We are doing the Horseshoe Mountain Rendezvous, SE Spring Rally in April, taking a week and spending 4 nights in Louisville and 4 nights in KC in June, taking over a week and heading up to the NE (Harrisburg/Hershey PA, Burlington VT, Lake Placid NY & Niagara Falls CA) in July. the SE Beat the Heat Rally in July, I have the Very Boring Rally 4 on the agenda in August, RWTW in September, maybe a week trip some where 3rd week of September for my wife's Fall break and then the Barber Vintage Festival in October.

That's about all I can fit it, maybe swing down to Daytona for the weekend for bike week.
Barber Vintage Festival - Oct 4-7

If it's not fun, why do it?

Plans are tightening up a bit.

HMR#5, then up to MN for some fabrication work on the Roadtrek at my brother's place(40x60 well equipped shop  :great: ), with the 3rd Resurrection of The Johnston Brother Annual Fishing, Drinking, and Now Off Road Vehicle Extravaganza in early May. 

Sometime in May will be leaving there for either the Southwest/Cali area or north to Alaska. Maybe the Bun Cooler on the way.

If coming back from Alaska will likely hit the VBR4.

All the above trailering either the KLR(Alaska) or the Versys(SW/Cali) behind the Roadtrek.

After Labor Day I plan on hopping on the Versys with a tent riding pillion for the RWTW, followed by the Spider and then on to the Arkansas rally near Mountain View.

Tentative for October is either Barber or the wifey and I will cruise the Danube and/or Rhine.

Gonna be busy, the goal is no more than one week in Flowriduh this summer.

Yeehaw!

Edit to add: Newfoundland has just come into play.

Thanks. And do check out The Mindoro Cut on 108. Pretty good ride through there. Also check out the highway going to Wildcat Mountain, south of you a bit. Some really fine riding in that area on usually almost deserted roads. I spent quite a bit of time playing in the area when I lived up there.

Thanks. Will do those two for sure. Should have lots of time for riding at times.

The resort has all the RV sites isolated, so if you park your RV in a site, you can't see another RV usually. Lots of meadow and grass. So my mowing job will be fairly continuous, I think. Few hours a day they said.

This thread was started last year for this year and you just did that, so you've already done next year, already this year. Got it?    :))

Glad you had fun! Maybe I can go next time in next year, because I already missed this next year already.  :truce:
