I did my trip in April, and I found the weather to be pleasant. I could imagine that May/June would be busy in some places, especially if you take the Outer Banks alternate route (highly recommended).
Good luck, and enjoy the trip!
I just read your blogs.
I did the whole BRP last year, too, just a couple weeks after you did it, only I went from north to south. I was originally planning on doing the BRP again this year, via south to north this time, but I recently got a wild hair up my butt, and am now thinking seriously about doing an "Outer Banks" tour, including all of both Carolina's coastlines, instead.
I'd like to start my tour sometime around the end of May this year, at the VA/NC border on the coast, and bike along the coastline, as much as possible at least, all the way down to Savannah, GA. I guess it would be aabout 600-700 miles, in six or seven days.
How did you get around Camp Lejune when you did your ACA tour? Apparently, they won't let you go through the base anymore, and going around it to the west looks like a: crappy, lengthy, non-bike friendly, detour, but going around it to the east, requires a boat.
