Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I've seen cyclists riding across the I 80 shoulder unsupported with Bob Trailers, riding solo. Support isn't so critical, because there are motorists and cell service all the way across. 20 miles in there is the scale house and rest area and also at 70 miles into the ride, so water is even available fairly available. Also, in the Summer, if traveling east, you generally have a strong tailwind to help.
