Ever since reading George Wyman's epic first person account of the first vehicular crossing of the United States, I've wanted to do something similar. Unfortunately, the first hassle today, really, is legality of the vehicle in the states crossed. All of the states neighboring Arizona, for example, require registration and whatnot, some with much more convoluted laws than others. Here at home though, everything is gravy, motorbikes are loved, somehow. Before that's changed in the state legislation, I want to ride more, to more places. Of the 4,000+ miles I put on Tanglebones, there was a very nice almost 400 mile jaunt to Phoenix and back. I'm hoping to take a journey to Tonto National Monument, or Montezuma's Castle (and the Well a few miles north), along with a few other spots here soon. If anyone is interested in meeting up for a ride, let me know, adventures are more fun shared. The Sierra Ancha Wilderness is loosely planned for next spring. There are a number of well preserved pueblos there, notably Devil's Chasm.
