Hi everyone. I've been reading the touring forums for a while now, and this is my first post.
I'm 19 years old, and I'm planning your run of the mill vision-quest/right-of-passage.
In March I'm going to start hiking the Appalachian Trail. This gives me January and February free, and I figured I would spend them touring. In addition to commuting, I ride a pedicab part-time, so I'm in pretty good shape. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pedicab
I haven't toured before, but I did pedicab at two separate 3 day music festivals, which meant sleeping in a tent and riding a bike all day with a bunch of extra weight.
Shortly after new year's, I'm going to ride from Phoenix to San Diego (as practice). After that I'm open to any reasonable suggestions for a route.
So, any suggestions?
