      Hey South Coasters, here is the preliminary route for our 2021 Great Falls Montana MOA Rally trip.

      We’ll be visiting at least six national parks, so you should probably purchase an annual pass beforehand. 

      https://store.usgs.gov/pass

      You can pre-register for a $20 discount here

      https://bmwmoaf.regfox.com/2020rally

      Many stops will have a hotel option. I’ll provide a list later. 

      If you hotel-ers want to camp at the rally site to avoid post beer garden riding, the Sherpa Packer offers a cool option. I used them in Billings, and it worked out fine. Not cheap, but very comfortable and convenient.

      http://www.sherpapackers.com/bmw-moa.html

      Saturday 6/19 Day 1, Flo’s Chino – Hurricane UT 375 miles of slabbing.

      Sunday 6/20 Day 2, Hurricane UT – Torrey UT via Zion, Bryce, Escalante 215 miles.

      Monday 6/21 Day 3 Torrey UT -Logan UT via Capitol Reef and Fishlake 342 miles.

      Tuesday 6/22 Day 4 Logan UT – Yellowstone National Park WY via Bear Lake and Jackson 288 miles. I’ll need a camper headcount ASAP so that I can reserve enough campsites.

      Wednesday 6/23 Day 5 Yellowstone WY – Bozeman MT via Beartooth Hwy and Red Lodge.

      Thursday 6/24 Bozeman – Great Falls (The Rally) 190 miles. We’ll get an early start for an afternoon Rally arrival.

      Friday -Saturday 6/25-26 – Rally fun!

      Sunday 6/27 Great Falls MT – Whitefish MT via Going To The Sun Road/Glacier Nat Park, traveling East to West.

      Monday 6/28 Whitefish MT – Kooskia ID (or somewhere nearby)  via Lolo Pass 280 miles.

      Tuesday 6/29 Kooskia ID – Burns OR 324 miles.

      Wednesday 6/30 Burns OR – Reno NV 364 miles.

      Thursday 7/1Reno NV – Confidence CA, home of the Tripp’s country estate and club campground via Sonora Pass.

      Friday – 7/2 Confidence CA – Home  450 miles.

      This is just a draft. We’ll have a riders meeting before we finalize the route. We’ll be riding some of the best roads in the western states, so if you can’t do all of it, do some, and meet up – split off when your schedule permits.

      More to follow. I’m already packing!!

      Yes, a pre-ride meeting is a great idea. Maybe we can do that following the May General Meeting.
      And, I’m in for the camping.
      Thanks, Dave!

      Camping update – Yellowstone is sold out 6/22-23! Yikes.
      There’s a campground between Tetons and Yellowstone called Lewis Lake that is first come, first served. I’ve stayed there before and it’s nice. That’s probably our best bet. The revised itinerary is;

      Tuesday 6/22 Day 4 Logan UT – Lewis Lake WY via Bear Lake and Jackson 275 miles.

      Wednesday 6/23 Day 5 Lewis Lake WY – Bozeman MT via Yellowstone NP, Beartooth Hwy and Red Lodge.
