Here are my quirks I sent to the guys today. This is what I have found to keep expectations in check on long distance group tours.


Quirks



  1. 5 over speed limit, except dirt and fun twisties
  2. 100 miles before breakfast
  3. Lunch: eat sandwiches in pretty or remote places, not gas station or restaurant. I will usually go about 30 minutes ahead of restaurant group and wait there.
  4. Camp 2 or 3 nights, motel/ air bnb /or cabin 4th night. I prefer established camp sites.
  5. Wash clothes every 3, 4 or 5 days
  6. Everybody ride their own ride
  7. No one gets left behind, buddy system
  8. Get supplies for evening around 2 or 3pm
  9. Camp within 30 minutes of hotel group.
  10. Ride about 7 hours per day. Actual riding time, not counting breaks.
  11. Calm, positive attitude and respect for others in group.
  12. Have the time of your life!
  13. Place others needs above my agenda, routes and schedule.

Yep, not working yet. Interesting. I thought that since SPOT was acquired by Garmin that it would all be consolidated into one system. Not so I see. One caveat with the Inreach tracker if there is nothing current you have to click a little "View All Tracks" button in the upper right. I looked for it on your SPOT tracker. Nothing like that.
Just for comparison https://share.garmin.com/EdHess

Looking forward to following the adventure from the confinements of my desk and workdays.

Camped out in Yampa valley at black tail BLM camp. About 20 miles east of Kremmling Colorado.

Scored a campsite. Shared a camp fire with a gsa dude that works with my buddy back home.

Tonight we made it to sinks canyon state park. Scored the last two walk in camp sites on the river.

I’m always amazed at what I can learn from a ride report.

Today I learned there is a show about Dutton Ranch and a character named Beth who is crazy. Thanks to your clues and google. I’ll crawl back under my rock now until you guys stump me again and I have to hit google to find out what’s going on.

Lookin in on the Magnificent 7. Hmmm, kinda quiet. Tracker appears the adventurers had forgotten something and backtracked a good ways.

Oh wait. No, upon closer inspection, they must have just been really thirsty. Thirty some miles out and back to visit Ten Sleep Brewing Co. Adventure indeed! :rider:
