I will be moving to Rock Springs in August, I don't know when I will get my bike there. The first few months of work I am in training and don't have a place to stay and will be on the road a lot for about 6 months. After that though I will have my bike in WY with me.
Well that's my luck! I left Wyoming some time ago. Just when another KLR rider is getting close enough to go riding with. I'm down in Texas right now, but I may be coming back that way soon (I hope).
Nevertheless; you will have some great riding terrain, maybe the best you have ever seen so be sure to get you a GOOD csmera to put in your waist pack....you will need it.
Who are you going to work for up there????
I will be working for Schlumberger as a wireline field engineer. I graduate in May this year as an Aero. Engineer, go figure to jump ship at the end of school. I'm from MT originally, but have been in AZ the last 5 years for school. Im looking forward to getting back north a ways and away from the crowds and such and just ride the hills.
Let me know if you here of any jobs for a "Certified Plant and Welding Inspector". I prefer working pipelines but I will do Compressor Stations, Meter Stations etc.
When are you supposed to start? Have you googled for housing? You might be able to get into something fair decent and cost efficient right now, a month from now the price gougers will be going at full tilt.
Hope to see you up there and ride together. Jim
P.S. I know quite a few beautiful places to ride up there
P.P.S. I'll send you some pictures by email.
I will keep my eyes and ears open for those positions. I am supposed to start August 3. I have a 2 week safety and driving training session, so I should be in WY around August 20 I would assume. A buddy of mine was supposed to start mid February and his date was bumped to April 6 so who knows when I will actually start. Ive looked for housing some, I cant seem to find much yet. The company puts me up somewhere until I finish my training, 6-9 months, then I have a week to find a place and move. My brother lives in Cheyenne and Ive spent some time there exploring but I have yet to go to Rock Springs. I would love to see some pictures of the area and places to ride.
"Tanker & jrsinclar" send me an email and I'll send you some pictures I took off the seat of my KLR. And try to tell you where some of the beautiful off road trails are to be found in the Flaming Gorge area. I did most of my riding around Green River and after 6 months I still hadn't see it all.

Hello all! I'm new to the forum, but I've had my Black 09 KLR 650 (aka the Dirt Ninja) for a couple of years as well as the big bike - an 06 Honda VTX 1800 S. I live in Rock Springs. When I'm not working, dealing with the honey-do list, or running the kids around I like to think I might be able to find time to ride...
Hello All, First post but been a member since Aug. Live in Casper, WY, former flat tracker, motocrosser and drag racer. Bought a new 09 Black KLR last Aug. Great fun to ride, like dirt mostly. This site has a great bunch of people.
