We have been doing WWD for 10 years now and after missing last years trip, I decided to join SnoDragon and Chia this year. Following a formula that has been refined over the years we escaped for 5 days to NorCal October 4 to 8th.
Trailered 1200kms to Anderson, CA. I was solo with a U-Haul trailer and made it door to door in less than 12 hours. Best time for me by at least an hour. Only made 3 stops along the way, for gas/food/coffee, and a piss. Left at 2am and arrived at 1:55pm. The other guys left later and arrived exactly at 4:20pm. Drinking began minutes upon arrival
The next 3 days of riding delivered exactly what we expected and in a few cases actually surprised us as we explored a couple new roads.
Typical day had us depart our motel at 9am and return by 5pm, although the last day we got back after dark due to having to stop for new front tires for a couple of us. SnoDragon's tire was FUBAR
