    from Brooklyn, New York to...? One week tour.

    Hi everybody, I'm planning my second tour (the first was a loop from Birmingham, Alabama to Nashville, Tennessee and back), but this will be my first unsupported tour (except I still won't be cooking). I only have 5-7 days, and what I want is NATURE. I live and work in the city, and I need to see some trees, lakes, and a few animals. That's my priority - I don't care about how many miles I go, I just want to get away for one week and do some riding and camping. I'll be doing it this spring. EDIT - I'd also consider taking a bus if it would help me get somewhere nicer.

    Where should I go? I've heard a lot of good things about Pennsylvania? What are some resources I should look for to help me decide the route?

    Thanks so much!

    That looks like a really nice route, thanks a lot for suggesting it, but it's a bit out of my way, I'm not sure I'd want to spend 15 hours on buses.

    This must be a common question people have, trying to get out of New York... Where do you think I should start looking?

    I did NYC to Montreal via Vermont last fall. Took us 7 days (6 nights) and was awesome. If you're interested in more details, PM me!
