    Also check out www.crazyguyonabike.com. There's a classified forum where ppl post requests for riding partners. Gets lots of hits. Good luck.

    I am starting in San Diego on February 11th. I am not actively looking for folks to ride with but would not mind some company. I am not big on committing to remaining with folks I do not know for the whole trip, but wouldn't mind starting out with someone and staying together if it works out well.

    You can check out me and my trip journals on crazyguyonabike.com, even the one for this trip.

    If you visit New Orleans, and need any route help, either shoot me an email, or check out the maps on my site: http://www.joeybike.com/

    I can't promise a place to stay given you probably have no idea when you would get this far, but put me on your list of "possibles".

    I plan to "play it by ear", but yes I expect to go to Florida. I have a daughter in Tallahassee and plan to visit there, but will probably finish up in St Augustine. I leave the option of bailing early if not having fun, but would be very surprised if I don't get to at least Tallahassee and most likely will go to St Augustine.

    I am generally pretty easy to get along with and am open to riding together or just meeting up in camp every day. I turn in pretty early in the evening and am usually out really early in the morning so you might not want to start as early as I do. If that is the case you could probably catch me on the road or just meet up at the end of the day.

    I expect to camp a lot of the time, stay with warmshowers hosts some of the time, and maybe get a motel room once in a while. I try to keep it fairly low budget.

    I am in Baltimore MD and am flying out on Feb 11 arriving at in San Diego (SAN) at 12:40 PM. I usually assemble my bike in the baggage claim and ride out from the airport, but probably won't get too far that day, arriving in the afternoon and still needing to get things together.

    I'll send a PM with my contact info.

    I will be in the Yuma area in late February, and then possibly heading east for a while. Probably a little late, but will keep my eyes peeled for you 2, maybe buy lunch, have a chat.
