I've completed the first leg of this trip. Arrived at my neices house in Calgary BC. last night July 11th. Rode from central Minnesota about 1300 miles. North Dakota and Southern Saskatchewan are under water. Had to ride through water over the road (1/4 mile) like riding on a lake water in all directions. When the pavement showed up again still 1/2 mile of water on both sides. Grit your teeth and hang on.
Wind was factor but mostly a good run.

Kind of hard to tell where I am no harm intended. I phoned a friend and Alberta is the answer. Thanks.

The man at the visitor center said it would be 6 to 10 inches. It varied. But was an experience for sure. I could see the yellow line but didn't want to look down just try to follow the vehicle in front. Two lanes no room for a do over. Scoot has a few more noises and a new vibration on take off plus a clicking noise when I let off the gas. Runs OK just a little rough in spots. Hums along fine at 70mph.
I spent 4 days on the road I go into small towns and look for local eats and gas takes longer but it's all about the journey. Maple Creek and Moose Jaw breakfast at Herbert all in SK. Now some rest before Revelstoke.

Hi, I arived at Ft Lewis Washington on July 18th for much needed rest 2400 miles out. Passed through Revelstoke BC beautiful camped at Canyon Hot Springs one night most were one night and then go on. The fruit growing reagions of BC and eastern WA are in full bloom. cheeries, blue berries, peaches I pigged out. Dropped down from BC to the Grand Coulee Dam 160,000 gallons of water a second going over it a sight to see.. Crossed the Cascades on hiway 20 put this one on your list it was worth evey curve and mountain pass. Just returned from a great seafood place in Olympia with daughter and son-in-law. To the ocean for a photo shoot tomorrow. Won't be able to load pics til I get back but that is coming so hang on. Nomad
