Western Express+TransAm Starting August
« on: July 15, 2008, 07:24:26 am »
In  May this year, I attempted this trip (going West to East) but my bike was not set up correctly and I reluctantly abandoned my adventure in Carson City.

I am thinking about starting again from SF in August this year and would appreciate any advice I could get here.

I am concerned about the heat in Nevada and Utah in August and also the possibility of snow in the Rockies. I should get into the Rockies in September.

The weather stats  show  that snow may start to fall in late September but I would imagine that some of the passes would have snow sooner than this?

I am a 63 old Aussie male.

If I dont do the trip in August 2008, then I will definitely do it in May 2009

Regards,

Roger

I would think that it would be easier to balance the weather in the Rockies with the weather in the desert by going East to West.
