Well, I'm just about done accumulating all the gear you need for a self-sufficient tour and now I need a little help with the next step -- trying to figure out where to go and how to plan a route. Ideally, I'd like to ride out my driveway and come back 7 days later. Or another option is, I could take a bus to Boston and then have quite a few options for taking a bus to another starting point from there. Should I plan a route based on where the campgrounds (or Warmshowers hosts) are? Since I'm in very hilly terrain, I wouldn't plan on more than 30-35 mi per day fully loaded for a first tour and no stealth camping for me so what is the protocol for mapping out a tour of one's own? I suppose I could try the Adventure Cycling Green mountains loop or something like that, but sounds like a lot of work (i.e. gigantic hills) to me and I'd rather opt for something flatter for a first time out. And I definitely need to know a route in advance -- I'm in it for the joy of riding most of the day and relaxing by cooking dinner at a campground in the evening. As a woman most likely going solo, I'm not up for too many surprises otherwise. Thanks for any route planning tips!!
