Here is the "Plan B" route for this year's ride. The original plan would have taken me from Santa Fe across Texas and Oklahoma and into Arkansas and the Ozarks. From there I was going to go up the Missouri River to Pierce, SD and then west to Montana and south through Yellowstone, Wyoming, and Colorado back to New Mexico. However this year's active tornado season in Tornado Alley caused me to rethink that trip; maybe I'll plan it for the fall season some year.
