First time with Flicker. Hopefully the link works. This was a little 650 mile trip we took this Wednesday through Thursday night. Ignore the stupid video. I was bored.

No time for fishing this time. We were in the saddle the majority of the time. Would have been nice though.

I don't know.....
As much as I love fishing, getting in some good road time would rank right up there.

Yep, that's a great trip. I had rain last year the whole way up and over, but still a great ride through the country. I was very careful about not riding at night and dawn / dusk because those Moose are bigger than me. The beat up truck guards will substantiate the need when night driving.

The road surface in MN was interesting too, as in what road?

Heading for the sun set and checking the boxes along the way.
