Ok...here is the deal. I am 18 years old, a high school senior. I really badly want to tour(solo) down to college this summer. Oh, btw I live in western WA and will be going to school at BYU in Utah(yes I'm Mormon ) It's about a 950 mile trip. My parents, on the other hand, are not so enthused about the whole dealeo. They are concerned, worried, etc., etc.... I commute to school everyday, have a suitable bike and gear, and am not the type of person that does things like this unprepared. However, this would be my first long tour. So my mom reccomended that I ask on BF what you guys thought. Here goes...yes or no?
P.S. If anyone has any insight/comments/blahblah they want to spew out, go ahead. I will be anxiously awaiting the replies(as will my parents)
