I'm planning a cross country tour from SE Arizona to Cape Cod in the summer of 2010. Any route ideas? Weather hints? I'm planning on having a Sag wagon as I'm through sleeping on the ground. I hope to average 60 miles per day and I'm not in a rush. I'm also inclined to take weekends off or any other day off to see an interesting whatever. I'm 51, not rich, but have to do this before I die, or die trying. My wife thinks I'm nuts, but she's all for driving the sag wagon (an RV we haven't purchased yet). I'm building up a modified Schwinn Paramount for the tour, as my restored '73 French 10 speed that I toured the country on last time will be too hard to find parts for. If anyone is extremely interested in joining me, pm me. I expect to be gone for the whole summer, and may even continue on up into Vermont and New Hampshire and Maine in the Fall. Who knows? If you want to come but like to ride fast fast fast, you'll be with the wrong crowd. I already have a neighbor who leaves me in his dust at no extra charge. My first tentative route plan takes me to Pueblo, Co after crossing the Rockies at 11,000' (this is where I might die trying!). It's all downhill from there!!! I know it's aggressive, but what the heck. You only live once. Any advice? Any Takers?
