Eastern Horde Sleeping en route?

Post by Rench » Tue Sep 08, 2009 11:52 am

It's been thrown out a few times below with no solid answer: for those joining the Eastern Horde, how shall we do overnights while marauding?

I do see a Lake Clinton State Park just outside Lawrence, KS, which would probably be cheap, easy, and well on the way for the night of June 20. Unless anyone really prefers a bed before camping for a week?

-Rench



OP: As long as we're getting input from Baltimore, I figured I'd broaden the scope here. :mrgreen:

If I may be so bold Rev, by my figuring all y'all should be able to make Dayton Ohio by night 1, then meet up with us flyovers for lunch on Day 2, making KC a natural stop for that night (presumably Sunday). Final push Monday, DAG barbecue for dinner.

Of course picking up Bo_9 while there, and the cheeseys coming down with me. Perhaps not the most efficient route for some of us, but better fun in marauding masses.

I am too dumb to figure out how to have multiple starting points, so this is as good as I can do for google maps.

-Rench


Oop:

epicepicepichappygoodness!!!!

Ahem. Anyway, this is what I'm planning, for the sake of collecting Guder down south and catching the East Coast caravan on the way through.

Assuming other flyover support, I'll happily change thread title to include.

Danny? Madison Cell? Solo? Deacon? ANYBODY?!?!?!

    If you can drive the east coast folks all the way to Indianapolis on day the first, you will be dubbed Cat-Herder-Extraordinaire-First-Class. :mrgreen:

    An awesome goal to set. Looking forward to lunch in Effingham.

    We do have Red in Indianapolis, who may finally have his bike issues sorted by then. Depending on sheer bio-mass passing through, maybe he can recommend a place to stay.

    As the timeframe fits with my impending move to the richmond area, I for one, vote to use Chris's route/plan for the peeps from the area. Question: What bikes are y'all considering for this trip? Anyone getting something 'new' for this? Or are you planning on your current ride? Myself, I'm thinking about building something for it. But, there's always the possibility of a prototype or two making the trek, just to prove a point. We'll see. Other than that, I'm deffering to the Devil-Bitch... With luggage....

    If I'm going to dayton, I'm pushing through to Indianapolis at the very least. I don't want to spend any more time in Ohio than I have to. Maybe I'll pick some of you up in central illinois.

    Alternately, I'll take a more southern route through Kentucky. I'll decide that day.

    I'm sure Nate will be looking at maps for this trip soon. However, coming from Philly, we will probably take a more northern route to at least Ohio area (possibly Rt 80 or the PA turnpike?).

    I know it's a solid 14 hours from Philly to Chicago, so I don't know if I'd be able to do that all in one day, though I'd like to. If we were driving the cage out, we could at least take turns and nap - tell me if I'm a wuss for thinking 14 hours in the saddle is too long for one day (I have no idea as the furthest I have ridden in one day is Buena Vista, VA to Philly on the way home from LLG's house)

    I'll be taking the Ninja this time. It's doubleplus fast on the highways - much more so than the Vespa. (shhhh...don't tell Veronica I said that)

    Perhaps we can meet up somewhere along the way with some people. Being that Nate and I are mechanically retarded (me moreso than Nate), it would be nice to ride along with some more mechanically inclined folks.

    I plan to build a frame around a snowmobile engine, bolt on a seat, put it on bicycle wheels, and then ride that.

    Seriously though, as with Priest's route-planning, I'll likely just look at the bikes at my disposal and decide the morning I leave.

    As to route, since 64 runs through Richmond, I'd planned to push that to STL, then grab 70 to Denver. Could meet the more-northerly folks prior to that too, I guess. Just depends, and right now, it's pretty early to call.

    I will find the most direct route and head out saturday morning and cover as much ground as possible, hopefully at least 1000 miles and pick up the rest the next day. My all-time personal best is 1250 in one day but that was when I was 23 and I'm not 23 anymore. Anyone that wants to join my madness is welcome, if weather is decent I want to do at least 16 to 18 hours the first day with stops included and get the rest the next. It's gonna hurt the first day but not as much as the second.

    Dozerone, I stand corrected and proud. :mrgreen:

    As for all the non-commital motherfuckers, I agree. I sympathize and empathize, complete with a bit 'o jealousy. Traveling alone is inevitably easier and faster.

    I think a big-ass group will be more fun though. Personally, this is probably one of the first times I've wanted to travel en masse. Like-minded folks, fuel stop shenanigans, relaxed pace, plus the opportunity to help encourage a few non-high-milers.

    Hopefully we'll run into you out there.

    Buttzilla and I intend to join up with the Eastern group, probably as we cross Central Pennsyltucky.

    Since we are coming out of the East and ravaging everything in our path, I figured we should be the Mongol Horde. But the Mongols are grouchy about other motorcyclists sharing their name, so The Eastern Horde will do, eh?

    As much as I dislike the slab, it is probably the correct course of action for this group/itinerary.

    I figure the Hawk is not the only bike requiring fuel every 100 miles, so there will be a lot of time lost to fluid changes (Add fuel, drain used coffee, top up with fresh coffee). High mile days will be hard to come by.

    Ok, lemme ask this: how many days are folks planning for getting there/back? Looks to me like 3 days each way from DC, doing between 500-600 miles a day (around 8-10 hours saddle time).

    That sound about right?

    More than that is do-able, but realistically with a big group of people, stopping every 100 miles or so for gas/piss/food I don't think it'll be feasible to do more than that safely.

    I'm guessing the following waypoints:

    DC - Indianapolis -- 594mi - about 9 hours 31 mins
    Indianapolis - Kansas City -- 485 mi – about 7 hours 29 mins
    Kansas City - Denver -- 599 mi – about 8 hours 38 mins

    Something like that?

    Jaeger's plan sounds about right. I'd opt for a bit of distance outside of cities for camping purposes.

    The Eastern Horde might converge at wherever our near-Indianapolis first night stop may be.

    Generally speaking, I don't make reservations for roadtrip night stops, but that might be the best plan for this Horde, at least the first night. Posses from different areas don't have to burn daylight waiting for each other. Stragglers and people from farther off the main route can catch up, and we'll all roll out together in the AM of day 2.
