1) What is approx expected road/dirt ratio? I'm guessing will have to go far some days to get to hotels.
2) Fuel capacity needed? Only have stock 9L tank. A little over 100mi range?

I think the paved road is as much as 40%. Most of it is pretty good twisty backroad. The rest is needed for going into/out of towns for fuel/food/hotels.
Most of the dirt is relatively easy. But sometimes is just a short section that takes a long time.

100 mile range should be fine.

just a little over 3 weeks to go! Just called Miss Kathy at HM Inn and confirmed my days. Good to go! I asked if we needed masks to come into Wingo's and she said up to you, but I am gonna carry a mask every where just in case! So pack one in your riding gear for the KAT! Depending on where we go, we might need them to go into stores and such.

How are the hotels being handled?

I "think" people are on their own to decide and arrange lodging. If I remember right, SJ is camping and not staying at HM Inn in Matewan. On the KAT, for now, I have no reservations, I think the plan is we will drop into the nearest town each day depending on where we end up each day and get rooms. I am splitting my room/s with Repoe.
