    Let the Journey begin !
    We have been packing, making house sitting arrangements, installed drip systems on all the planters and we are heading out! The first week will start very slow as I need to spend several days in Bend Oregon helping my late mentors wife, sort and organize his tools as she wants to have a garage sale and clean out his man cave and she does not know the value of them. It will be a little bitter sweet as I go through them as he taught me how to earn a living and provide for my family with these tools. One of them I'm keeping is a Winchester Hand Saw that was one of his favorites.We actually rode down to Newport OR. last week when it wasn't raining to get a photo of the sign and I'm glad that we did as today is a rainy day and we will pick up our ride in Lebanon OR. and leave for Bend in the morning. Thank goodness for heated gear as there is still a lot of snow on the mountain passes and my bride does not like the cold, but with heated pants, jacket, and gloves she stays warm as toast.

    Butler maps are a great option to have in the saddlebag. If you can swing it, the Custer Battlefield is hallowed ground..... There are hundreds of really great places to see and visit, you might get pushed for time with only 3 months...... LOL

    The first time I was at Custers battle field was in the late 60s but as my OP said we are staying on Hwy. 20 . I have a number of Butler maps and have been in every state but two, as a construction superintendent. This time around I get to share the country with my bride.

    We made it to Bend OR. We’re we will spend several days visiting some friends. It was misting on top of the passes when we crossed the Cascades. The spiders and trailers are behaving nicely . Will head out Wednesday morning aim or shine, looks like mostly light rain ahead for the next week. DFACA6C8-0C1B-401D-9659-8C4C73357F15.jpg

    Default Coast to Coast, Idaho

    Continued our journey today after spending 4 days in Bend OR helping my mentors wife sort his tools and getting ready for a sale, we made it across central and eastern Oregon and into Idaho where we will meet up with IdahoMtnSpyder and tour Old Fort Boise museum. The Oregon desert is greener than I have ever seen it before. We hope to be in Yellowstone in two days and it may snow.C44116B3-978A-4BFC-AE7F-B837CFC9D3E3.jpg4780E173-D490-4518-8CB3-B9ADE8415DE1.jpg

    Default Coast to Coast Yellowstone

    Made it through Yellowstone yesterday and spent the night in Cody. The rain has held off with only a few showers, just enough to keep the Frog Togs on. The ride through Yellowstone stone was great no matter how many times Ive been there. We have ridden through 4 times now and when I was a kid we went through every year on our annual trip to my grandparents. We hope to make Casper tonight but may take a detour off of 20 to stop at Independence Rock, Ive been there but my bride hasnt. And its a great piece of history for us adventurers.

    Safe travels as you continue on you journey.
    I suggest you stop in Lewiston NY, near Niagara Falls. Very beautiful town, nice resturants and an area you can stop along the Lower Niagara River. I go there a few times a year to fish.

    I did version of this a few years ago. Took Route 30 - the Lincoln Highway - from Michigan to New York. On the way back, from Boston, I took Route 20. Fun until the heavens opened with a deluge.
    Enjoy yourself and take your time!

    This is awesome, exactly what my wife and I are planning when we retire in 6-7 years. We didn't realize route 20 spans the whole country E->W, that is so cool!
    Have a safe trip, take it all in and take a ton of pictures and post them here!

    Default Coast to Coast , Wyoming

    We had breakfast in Cody WY. At the Irma Hotel and Bar that Buffalo Bill Cody built in 1901, the bar was a gift from Queen Elisabeth in appreciation for a command performance he gave he while he was touring Europe with his troupe. It cost $100,000 back then and was made in France, sniped to NewYork, shiped by Train to Red Lodge MT. Freighted by wagon to Cody. The Hotel has survived because he built it out of Stone. I chased the little yellow trailer across Wyoming down along the Big Horn Mt. through the Wind River Canyon, I have a photo of my dad on his Harley there in 1938 on his big ride. We stayed the night in Douglas Wy.

    Followed the little yellow trailer the rest of the way across Nebraska, the Sandhills were beautiful with lots of historical sites. The rain has held off, or we have been lucky. It’s been just enough showers to keep the Frog Togs on. We made it into Iowa yesterday. We have logged a little over 2000 miles and we are averaging 36 mpg. We are out of the mountains now so it may improve. Ellie gets better mpg as I’m pulling the heavier trailer and hers is more streamlined.3881F56B-5737-42A4-B988-7D3B0DAA1B61.jpgFA4A303B-D616-48CE-B8EF-65B454109F16.jpgDFB9BE13-35DC-440B-BCF6-ABAB4D1B2EC3.jpg

    Not much to see in Iowa on Hwy 20 as it’s all 4 lane and fairly new, took about 4 hours to cross then into Illinois. We decided to spen the night in Galena as it’s a great place to shop,eat and see the sites.

    We made to Elkhart Indiana yesterday after crossing Illinois which is very beautiful. The town of Galena is a great place to visit, the history is a little sad on the Indians point of view but again the history books are mostly written by the winner. We are making better time than I thought as we are chasing storms and not stopping as much as planned but when the weather gets nicer we will slow down. I thought I had the photo thing figured out but still have a hard time posting right side up photos.

    Super, if these are coming from your phone, I have found that if you go into the photo and "edit" it, and save, it will post right side up! You don't really have to change anything, just edit and save. Be safe...but have fun!

    Thanks Pirate, I’ll try that, I could post photos from my PC, but I bought a new IPad for the trip and it’s giving me fits.
