Bama to Seattle

Yesterday my son announced he and a friend were going to ride from Tuscaloosa, AL to Seattle next year. I guess he intended to get a rise out of me, but I told him I thought it was a good idea and would help him plan. If anyone has any advice, suggestions, tips and ideas about this please let me know. Thanks.

I happen to like posting here and my mental health is none of your business. If I were my son's age I'd consider the ride myself.

I think what he's trying to suggest is you'd get much more informed ideas and more of them in general from the Touring forum. I happen to agree.

What I'd suggest is doing some weekend bike camping trips. This will help him get an idea of what to bring and what not to. What works and what doesn't. Always helps to have some experience going into this type of thing. Plus some good fitness rides with some distance a few months out wouldn't hurt. The touring forum has some really good lists for the new touring rider.
