Is there anyone who has done this that may have a rough guess on what this would cost? I know there are a lot of variables, just wanting a ballpark.

This sounds like an awesome adventure! Wish I could go.

I noticed you have a Rick-Rak mount... I just returned mine after trying it out during a ride with a GoPro. The vibration and bounce in the video was just too much to watch for any length of time. I've had a GoPro mounted on the engine guards and that was much better than the Rick-Rak. I've ordered the Dog-Collar mount as it has very good reviews and hopefully that will work better.

I only mention this because for a trip like yours, I would hate for your videos to be almost unwatchable due to heavy bounce and vibration that will result with the Rick-Rak - not to knock them, it's a great idea and POV, but unfortunately, I think because it's attached to the fairing, it just vibrates way too much. Of course, having the GoPro mounted on your helmet would make the smoothest video, but it's tiring (due to wind) and not very practical.

Congrats on making your trip, and I am very sorry about your nephew.

From the FB page it showed OK. Looks like he is going up through Wyoming/Montana/ then up to Canada. Looks like a great journey, not sure if I am ready for it though..

C'mon, it's Czechoslovakia. We zip in, we pick 'em up, we zip right out again. We're not going to Moscow. It's Czechoslovakia. It's like going into Wisconsin.

Bleachey, there is a guy on here " Shrug" that has made the trip and a good video. I'm not sure what the cost will be but I'm saving $5000.

Here is a link to Shrug's video and blog. Check it out.

Lots (understatement) of planning went into this trip.
