Leaving around June 10, I will be riding fully-loaded and self supported. I m planning on doing 60-80 miles per day, at around 10-15 mph but it may change a little depending on how my injured ankle holds out.
I will go to Muscatine from Chicago and then follow the ACA route, probably camping all the way.

I m a 21 year old male. I initially planned it solo, but since its my first tour i m feeling it will be less tense when there s someone next to me.

if anybody is interested we can meet up (assuming you re living in chicago) and see if we ll be able to get along
