Coast to coast on chemo
« on: Feb 10, 2018, 01:13:34 PM »
I'm too stubborn and too young to die in a hospital bed. Getting ready to embark on a coast to coast journey in my '91 pickup with my dog, looking to hit as many trails as I can on my way. Any trail recommendations I could drive an sas'd third gen to AND from in March/April? My health limits my ability wrench more than I'd like, but I can still manage. I'll be leaving out of Seattle and heading wherever the wind blows me, any recommendations or resources are greatly appreciated.

ALSO to those who've truck camped for long periods of time, tips, tricks and commonly overlooked things?

Disney Oklahoma has some nice trails of you get down here. We've got a lot of good old fashioned kind hearted people & the south east corner of the state has beautiful mountains.

God bless & prayers for your trip & health sir.

Well my advice would be on nice big cast iron skillet.  Keep your cooking arrangement as simple as possible.  Carry plenty of water.  An onboard shower setup would be well worth it for extended tramping excursions.

We are in north-central Montana.  We have an off grid place by the creek.  Fishing is good and you would have an excellent camp spot.  Not a ton of epic wheeling here but if you want to run the "Going to the Sun Road" this summer in Glacier Park and then wheel the Wild Bill/Blacktail trail system over by Kalispell we could probably do that.  Going to the Sun doesn't open until late June most years though.

There is also something in N Idaho called "Compressor Trail"  I have always wanted to hit.  I know how to get to the trail but haven't ran it.
I would rather wake up in the middle of nowhere than in any city on earth.
