Because of my work (U.S. Coast Guard), I am unable to take the 60+ days off needed to ride tandem with my wife, across the U.S. of A.
We are considering breaking it up into 3 or 4 different sections (example VA to MO one year, MO to CO the next, etc.), and doing the trip over two or three summers.
Anyone out there done this? Other than the obvious (more money for travel), what logistical concerns might there be?
We are going to be starting small this year (local tours around the Great Lakes), but it's in my mind to stretch things out a bit more...always wanted to ride across the U.S.
