Hi David,
Myself and my partner Nicola loved your blog, almost felt like we were there. We are in the early stages of planning a similar trip next summer. The pictures were also wonderful with such colour, BTW which model of camera did you use? I also agree (having visited myself), that the Grand Canyon shots, whilst beautiful, can never do it justice. Thanks for an enjoyable trip.

Hi Mark
Thanks for your comments. I used a Canon 5D (Mk1) camera with, mostly, the Canon 24-105mm f4L lens.

Hi David,
I’m going to be doing the trip on a M/Cycle like yourselves in April/May 2011. Will probably be renting by Harley from Eagleriders, and doing a self guided tour, using ideas for overnight stops and other things to see from many sources.

I have one question, about your choice of bike: With there being 2 of you, and the 2 panniers being full of your camera gear, where on Earth did you put everything else? You must have travelled incredibly light!!

Anyway, thanks for your blog, it’s made great reading, and given me some new ideas. My blog ( is albout my thought process in planning the trip so far, including almost changing it to an Eastern European trip! Come the start of the big trip, it will beome a daily update on my progress, for myself and family friends to keep tabs on me.

Thanks again, Nigel.

Glad you enjoyed my blog Nigel. I keep meaning to update it with reviews of the equipment I used along with details of the book I have put together using my photos and words from this blog.

My trip was a guided trip (believe me, you’ll stopping frequently to check your map – the signs are often stolen by souvenir hunters and the road isn’t always marked on maps) and we also had the luxury of a support vehicle (a truck) that carried a spare bike as well as all our luggage from one stop to another so we didn’t have that overhead. Some prefer a self-guided tour – they do have their advantages but you should factor in extra time in case you fall behind schedule for some reason. I’ll take a look at your blog too.

Glad you like it Stuart. I keep wondering whether a tour of Oz is on the cards before I get too old. It’s sad that it’s only when you get old and pay off life’s debts that you have some spare cash to do these things…
