Eric, Travis, and I planned to attend and we decided to make it a gone fishing adventure. Travis was in charge of creating a dual sport loop that would take us from the Expo in Flagstaff, over to Mormon Lake, then down to Sedona, with a casual return route up the highway through scenic Oak Creek Canyon and back to the Expo. Eric was in charge of finding a fishing spot on Oak Creek while I studied the route for the best photo opportunities.
We had invited some friends that were coming down to the Expo from Washington State, but unfortunately, they could not make it for the ride. However, as with adventures, well laid out plans tend to change and we adapted our trip a bit. Instead of trying to do it all in one day, we decided to take two days and start our ride out of Sedona. On day one we would travel to Sedona and ride, then on day two we would do some fishing and go to the Expo.
