I might do a "quick" tour out to CA starting July 1. Since this is only about six weeks away, I might just pick up the Adventure Cycling maps, or trace something parallel a little further north. Something tells Texas in July might get toasty. = )
Any thoughts? I guess I'm more looking for Katrina/Gulf Coast information, etc.
Also, am I right that the common wisdom is this is about a six/seven week ride?
