18 July 2009 marks the beginning of a journey that will span 2700 plus miles. This journey is not your normal journey, it is rather an epic journey. Traveling from Salt Lake City, UT to Watertown, SD on a Can-Am ATV will take me through the 12,000' peaks of Utah, the flat Plateaus of Wyoming, and finally through the Black Hills of South Dakota. Continuing on, I will make my journey to Watertown for a few days rest, and enjoy the wedding of Dan and Julie in Colman, South Dakota.
I realize the trip is still two months away, but I find it necessary to get something posted. I am still in the logistical planning stages, and will continue to be for some time.
Switching out ATV rims/tires with new 205/75 R14 tires has been slow going, but a necessary evil. There will be a fair amount of hard surface travel and normal ATV tires won't last long. I am waiting for two more rims from Rocky Mountain ATV, and when I receive them I will mount them as well. I will post a few pictures when that task is completed.
Here is a cleaned up version of my license...scanned copy isn't very clean so I had to do some handy-work.
On the far right side you will see a list of Emotional Sponsors. I have sent several email contacts requesting support from additional / local businesses as well, and perhaps you will follow up with my request and send your stickers as well.
That's it for today, and will keep you posted on my planning.
For those who have sacrificed for it, freedom has a flavor the protected will never know. De Oppresso Liber!
