Hi Guys,

Mission complete. Started at the Mexican border and I reached the Canadian border yesterday at noon after 10 1/2 days. 2800 miles one way; 85% dirt roads and trails, 75% above 7K feet and 27 crossings of the continental divide. Did it on a DRZ 400 with soft bags and camping gear. I had two partners but one crashed and broke his collar bone near Yellowstone and flew home. Wow what an adventure. I'll send a link to a write-up and pics when I get it done. Cheers,
