I'm super stoked headbang. We have the air tickets booked. Iím planning to/from route travel logistics and had a few questions:

1. Will the start and end point be in Story? Weíre having some challenges with transport from Casper and back.
- Bus: There is a bus from Casper to Buffalo (and back). But itís one run per day.
- Car rental: I was thinking of a one-way car rental but it looks like the only way would be Casper to Sheridan (and back)

2. Do you have any suggested ways to get to and from the route from Casper?

The route starts and ends in buffalo, so it sounds like the casper buffalo bus should work.  I know the track starts and ends in story, but since its a loop it doesnt really matter.

Hey Aaron.  The track on Ride with GPS appears to have an error. It looks like you doubleback around miles 68-90.  What would you estimate your completion time to be for this route?  Assuming a race effort with 4-5 hrs sleep daily?

Yes the route mistakenly doubles back but it stays on the exact same track so it won't be an issue when navigating with gps, it just makes it look like the route is 15 miles longer than it actually is.  I think a Jefe Branham, Kurt Refsnider, Chris Plesko, Jesse Jakomait, Neil Beltchenko type mutant rider can probably finish in about 2.5 days.  A bit longer for the rest of us!

Spot signup is up at:  https://form.jotform.com/trackleaders/bighorn19

If you are renting a SPOT, please make sure to register a couple of weeks in advance to make sure the SPOT devices have time to be shipped to Wyoming.

smorris@topofusion is going to help me snip out the duplicated section.

Okay, Scott Morris fixed the track so it now starts and ends in Buffalo (at city park):  .gpx:  https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30848098

I might be able to make a run from Casper to Buffalo the evening of the 5th if you can help out with gas/beer money since iím sidelined this year. Anyone else flying into Casper?

Darn! We just booked a rental car. Turns out we couldnít rely on any transport so we rented it the entire time.
