Fantastic; I love reading these ride reports, and hope to one day post one of my own!
I pulled up Google Maps and followed you along on your adventure.
You rode thru Lakeview, Or, where my in-laws have lived their whole lives. :-)
In Fairbanks, you stayed 3 miles from some of my best friends, who own and operate Bucko's Coffee!
Which tires did you use, and did you make it on a single set?
