4 of us did it in 1990. We started in Florence, Oregon and rode to the east coast via the Southern route in the Bikecentennial maps, (now called Adventure Cycling). I was 36 and the oldest guy was 52.
We stayed in motels and sometimes in people's homes. It was a trip I'll never forget and I wish I could repeat it, except for the route. I would avoid the deep south next time. I'd also like to avoid the giardia which caused me to quit a little early.
