Glad to see you guys made it out there OK. Have a little extra fun for me :cheers: Edit: I'd like to be out there riding with you guys, but it wouldn't be good for business for the Boss to leave when the SHTF. :lol:

Happy trails,
Jaybird

Did Onion Creek, Thompson Canyon, Polar Mesa, to La Sal Mtn Loop Road into Spanish Valley in Moab. All but the south 10 miles has been replaced, with 2 long sections of graded gravel waiting for asphalt. O in creek is always scenic. Thompson Canyon is it too rough but there are 2 or 3 dry short steep road turns, one I had to slip my clutch on some. Upper 70s here today, sunny. About 4 hours trip time.

We're camped out at the end of Willow Springs. Will swing by Archview Sunday evening and check in. If your out to the Willow springs area come on by we're in a Avion trailer at the end the road. Looks like an Airstream

Meanwhile, I can't make Moab this year, but instead, I'm camped where the buffalo roam...

We’ve been meeting up each morning at 9 am outside of cabin A at Archview RV Resort, and then taking it from there. Somehow the Divine Plan is revealed!

WHAT?!?!? No one brought a camera, or a phone, to take some photos for the rest of us poor slobs.

I don't think you guys are really there! No photos... it didn't happen!

OK, a picture. Bonnie at bottom of Schafer Switchbacks today. She is on 2 wheels this trip, but she owns a Ural. Does this count?
