This is a close representation of the route I’ve taken so far, and only about 200 miles of that was freeway!
I have a ton of pictures to upload which are here in the slide show
It all started with a send off from the PNWSTOG at Sherlys Tippy Canoe then I headed south to Eugene via Silver Falls State park. It was great meeting Drea, Jason and West from the group in Eugene! Then on to one of my favorite places, Summer Lake Hot Springs, It was a little hot but I just couldn’t pass up a sunset and sunrise from the hot spring. I had my first boondocking experience outside Lee Vining just off US 395, it was great!
I stayed with Sherry Weiss down in Banning for another few days while my custom hitch carrier was being built at Joe Hauler just north of San Diego. Joe did a wonderful job building the extra heavy duty carrier for my Tenere.
Sherry was able to be my tour guide around the Saltan Sea, Salvation Mountain, Slab City and the sculptures in Borrego Springs. It was a great day! Thank you Sherry! She also helped me place a cross at the place our friend from the PNWSTOG Murray Newton was killed at last October.Murray was heading up Big Bear and then Vegas for his 50th birthday. Murray will be missed.
Parts of Route 66, the Grand Canyon, 4 Corners park and Durango Colorado were my next stops on my way. The landscape of Colorado quickly changed from desert to mountains pretty quickly.
I’m currently outside Denver for the next 4-5 weeks while the van interior is being built into a class B RV/motorcycle hauler by Cole Ford at Cavevan.
Here are even more pics…..
