Official UN-IX Sierra Adventures Announcement!!!

Recommended Posts

Bob Palin
I will overnight in Torrey on Saturday, July 10th on the way to the UN. If you have similar plans on the way out to Nevada, drop me a line and we can go grab a meal together on Sat. night.

Cheers!

This was directed at anyone that may be in Torrey that Saturday--not just my old friend and spelling bee champion.

 

Cheers!

Oh good, I'm planning on being Torrey that day too!

Excellent! I wasn't sure you still had the house in Torrey Bob.

 

SWMcKinley is riding out with me and we are booked at the Chuckwagon.

I'm signed up! Will meet you all there. Looking forward to it.

 

(Now, if only I can get my butt in gear to get to Torrey; one of the most beautiful places on this planet, IMHO.) Maybe September...

And I mean Torrey XIX, not the stop on the way to UN-IX. A bit too far off my route...

sIRrODNEY & Tim/Lori & I will also be in Torrey on Saturday (*Chuckwagon??) We then head to Ely, NV for the Sunday night stay.

Then on in to Topaz on Monday.

 

tOPAZ ON mONDAY still the call - but we will not be heading to Ely, NV on Sunday.

 

We'll actually leave Torrey and jump down to Zion and camp.

 

Then Zion to Topaz via coming in from the south of Calif.

 

should be an interesting trip.

 

See ya in Torrey, Lime & Steven.!!

See ya in Torrey, Lime & Steven.!!

 

Same to ya Bone.

 

BTW, I've been watching the long range NOAA forecasts and right now the West is looking at hotter than normal temps May - July. Camel backs and evaporative vests, along with Gerbings for the mountain passes will be in order.

 

Looking forward to seeing y'all.

On the west side of the Sierra, August and September are usually the hottest months, when places like Fresno and Merced can see 110 degrees. June is pretty mild, kind of an extension of May. Early July is the start of summer, with temps in the 90's throughout the San Joaquin Valley. It gets hot in the mountains too. Look for mid 80's in Yosemite Valley and along Hwy 41 to Mariposa Grove, where the big trees are. Kings Canyon and Sequoia will be hotter. Summer traffic in Yosemite and Sequoia can be brutal. On a weekend expect to be in queue at 35 mph.

 

Ditto what Greg said. Carry water, and drink it. Even if it's cool at 8,000 feet, it's an arid place and your body will dehydrate faster then you expect.

I'll be two days behind you. I try not to think about it, because if I do I can't think of anything else -and some times I should...

Got 18 Canadians signed up by my count. LesterV looks like he's bringing a the whole town of Grand Forks, BC!

 

Going to be a direct ride for me since I can't leave until Friday after work. Sixteen hours of daylight will help for the first 500 miles south.

Looking forward to seeing you again too, but please bring the Duc. I'm sure I'm not the only one who wants to try it out. Here I am still puttering along with the same old RT and I'm sure you've had a dozen bikes since we first met in 2003.

The surgeons aren't going to let my wife use her broken ankle for another 6 weeks so Ive had to cancel my UN plans. I just canceled my room reservation so there might be one available if anyone is waiting for one.

Michael, my schedule just freed up so I will be joining the group. Reservations made at Topaz lodge, and fee will gladly be paid if possible, even though registration is closed. Let me know how much trouble I am in! Also, I have a bed available if anyone is looking for a roomie, or if someone else is looking, let me know and I'll free up my room. Thanks

Add one more to the Torrey/Ely route. I'm booked at the Chuck Wagon as well, and at the Bristle Cone in Ely. Silver RT en route from Colorado. We've not me, even though you are just down the road, and I've missed your hill country rides so far, but now that I'm retired.... Would love to see Bob again as the last time we met was over green chile in Ouray (sad story, that). Hope to catch you guys in UT.
