With some money I've already put aside I'll need about $1500 to fund the trip.

Hello. If it helps, I'm currently reading "Holy Spokes!: A Biking Bible for Everyone", a book borrowed from my local library. Don't worry; it doesn't have anything religious in it, if you're an atheist. Although it's listed as being written for teens, I think it's perfect for older, novice cyclists, as well- It includes information about touring (items to bring, safety, etc.)
