need a touring friend

Hi,
I'm from England and I'm arriving in Vancouver in May 2013. I'm planning on riding a bicycle down to LA or possibly Tijuana, Mexico.
I have never done anything like this before so I expect the first week or two to be slow and tough going but hopefully I will get into the flow.
I will mainly be camping along the way and cant wait to see everything along the way.
At the moment I'm doing the trip alone but I'm sure I will meet tons of people along the way. Would like to find someone likeminded who fancies doing the whole thing with me though.
I'm 31, male, reasonably fit but not ridden a bike seriously since I was about 10 but hey, why not.
Get in touch if this sounds like an adventure you would like to have too. I would be happy to travel with a male or female. I plan on making it a leisurely journey. It's not a race, it's an adventure.

Ben

Welcome to Bike Forums! I would recommend posting this in the Regional forums, and perhaps the Touring forum as well. Additionally, check your local bike shop to see if they can help you find people. Good luck!
