Ride to Arizona

Just completed our 3500 kilometer ride to Gold Canyon, Arizona. We travelled through eight states in all:  Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona.

We had no problems with the bike or the trailer, however fuel consumption was up because of the trailer, high winds through Oklahoma, Texas and winds and elevations in New Mexico and Arizona. Experienced about 15 minutes of rain along the way. Prior to leaving all we seen on the radar was storms and rain.

We travelled all Interstates: I-69, I-70, I-44, & I-40. Finally we took AZ60 through Show Low / Salt River Canyon / Globe, to our destination.

Fuel costs averaged from $3.16 to $3.65 US a gallon.

We pre-booked our hotels along the way, but picked up the hotel coupon books at travel info centers and they saved us a fair bit.

If anyone needs any information of these areas, I might be able to help out somewhat.
