We are open and are looking for suggestions and recommendations. I am new to biking long distances.
Welcome to the Forums. My wife and I cycled together from Los Angeles to Washington DC in 1977. Your queries are pretty broad, and might best be answered by searching, especially the Touring Forum, IMO.
I harbor a Dream to cycle the perimeter of the US with support by my wife driving a luxury RV after we win the lottery. Just this morning I was thinking about the Dream. I had planned to ride clockwise out of Boston, but many posters have suggested it is much better to ride the Pacific coast from North to South rather than the other way, so I was mentally planning my new route and schedule. That's the kind of information you can expect to find, from the broad route outline to detailed suggestions, for example what kind of tent.
For my interest, what kind of vehicle are you taking, what are your plans for accomodations, and where are you starting from?
