Looks like i need to find a partner to head down there with, being my wife could not even be tempted with spending time in KS with her best friend.
You've got a few months to work on those Oregon members. It would be a great road trip for sure.

You don't have to limit yourself to 675 members either. you could try the Rat website and see if someone over there wants to go.

I just looked at that on google maps. You're looking at like 33 hours. Thats a MANS road trip. My best solo trip was 22 hours from West Palm Bch Fl to Norman OK, with just a 3 hour rest stop in Gainesville along the way.
You really ought to look for someone around there to go with.
You got doublen675 in Idaho, and MacBandit in Washington.

I still need to figure out trailer or truck or something. We're in the middle of car swapping and I think I'm going to be stuck with the Civic SI for awhile and the wife isn't inclined toward a truck for her, so if I don't sell the civic soon, I'll look for a trailer some more. At least I think I can borrow a tow vehicle now. Son bought a 99 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer with a 5.0 today.

JD _ I just realized you should win the farthest traveled award unless the Austrialian shows up again. Or maybe that just goes to who RODE the furthest to get there.

Tom,
That Civic shouldn't have any problem pulling the Kendon trailer. My last RAV4 only had a 1.8l engine and I pulled a 5x10 utility trailer/ bike with zero issues.

Really? I guess the 2 liter would carry enough power. The 6 speed is geared really low so I guess if the clutch could handle it......hmm. I need to look into this

If people can pull a 5x8 enclosed UHAUL trailer with a Mazda3 then a Civic should be fine.

Have seen plenty of these little cars pulling one bike on a trailer.

TOM you mentioned, the marathon drive/ride... lets put it this way i drove the 12 foot box truck from my MO address to OR in 36 hours! one 2 hour nap, 1 15 minute nap (no monster or redbull)... If the truck could do a bit over 75mph could of shaved another hour, and the ice & snow that was falling in the OR pass did not help. Problem with doing that is your spent for 2 days afterwards.
