MT bound!

So after not being back to my childhood home since my step father passed away in 2006 I am going to make the trek west to visit family for a few days. I am leaving from St Robert MO next Wednesday enroute Missoula MT. It is a little more than 1600 miles one way. I am planning on camping along the way. I have been prepping my gear for a few weeks now and will be changing fluids on Sunday. This is going to be my longest trip on a bike yet and I am stoked to say the least. It will also be my first crack at motorcycle camping. I plan on eating in restaurants but will sleep on the ground in my pup tent. I haven't figured out exactly where I will be staying or the route as of yet. I figure I'll just keep an eye out for camping areas when I start getting tired or my ass gets too sore! I will try to take pics of anything interesting along the way and share them here. Also depending on how the miles feel on my way there I may attempt an iron butt on the way back. I'm really looking forward to the adventure and welcome any input or advise y'all want to give.

Check out Red Lodge, Beartooth Pass, Yellowstone, Glacier National Park if you get a chance. If you get near the West gate of Glacier, Lake 5 Resort is awesome and has camping.

Did that trip in June. Great ride. Put 3200 miles on, had temperatures from 30 degree to 105 degree. It was my first time at Yellowstone & Bear Tooth Pass.

We took 93 from Arco to Whitefish, really was a great ride!!

If you pass through Salmon be sure to stop in the Shady Nook and write your name on the wall and say hi to Marley the owner. A great place!!
