So I was just laid off. No huge surprise, I've been working for a startup and that comes with an awful lot of risk. I've got some savings, I'll be okay for a couple months.
I've always wanted to do a coast to coast bike tour. The problem is my vacation is only 2 weeks a year and is always used for family obligations. I figured this was something that would happen when I retired. But now I find myself with quite a bit of free time.
But of course money is a HUGE concern right now. I've got a Trek 1000 with a rear rack (my daily commuter) but I imagine I'll need a bit more. Tent? Plus food. And a plane ticket to CA.
Anyone have any thoughts about this? I'd love to hear them.
Perhaps I could do a small tour instead, but honestly I've never researched anything except for a West > East coast to coast tour. I'm open to suggestions.
Also, semi-related... I may have a 1958 VW Deluxe (15 Window) Bus for sale to raise funds for this trip
