Better known as ImNoSaint on Expedition Portal and other forums, Eric Young writes and shoots for UTADV. He and his companion Mindy have been adventuring since they met in 2004, on kayaks, cruisers and superbikes, sports cars, and special-built SUVs for overland travel.
Young is a Professor Emeritus of Media Studies and has produced and directed in motion picture production since 1990.
To stave off the boredom of slabbing I-15 for his weekly commute to St. George and to hedge against fuel costs, Eric procured a Kawasaki KLR650 and more recently, and then a Triumph Tiger 800 XC and now a Triumph Tiger Explorer 1200XC and is building it to explore Utah’s backcountry – Highways 12, 24 and 89, the Grand Staircase, Moab to Capitol Reef, Skutumpah Road, dozens of BLM trails, and of course, Bryce and Zion National Parks.
This is the chronicle of those commutes; the trails, the moto-camping, the land and the Utah ADVenture.
