We turned nearly every half mile as we zigzagged northeast from Great Plains Salt Lake back to Kansas City.
We took back roads, stumbled across a Kansas Trials riding competition, and there learned how to get back home ADV style. We discovered Teeter Rock and found unexpected great riding trails in Kansas, which we didn't know was even possible.
From Emporia we finally hopped on the pavement and sped home through 45° cold. We are thankful to be home, safe, bikes still running, and with a couple millimeters of tire tread to spare.
In short, the Oklahoma TAT is a different kind of ADV trail, but one we realized that we are glad we didn't miss.
