I am 67 and on 4/18/05 will begin a tour from San Diego to Dallas. Basically using Adventure Cycling Souther Tier maps from San Diego to El Paso - with some minor modifications.
Having problems with Texas - Southern Tier goes too far South to be practical. Also getting conflicting reports about being able to ride on Interstates and Int-state access roads in Texas.
Specifically interested in going further North in NM using 82 thru Alamagordo to Lubbock
going on to El Paso and then 180 / 62 up to Lubbock.
Moteling it and eating out rather than camping.
Any info and experiences appreciated.
