First off, I'm not much more than an amateur cyclist. The biggest thing I've ever done was the BP MS150 last April (150 miles over 2 days). I ride a Schwinn Prelude , which I'm pretty sure is the cheapest road bike that money can buy. I'm pretty desperate to get out and see some mountains, but the nearest are in the vicinity of Big Bend national park. I haven't modified the bike in any way, but I'm pretty sure I'll have to attach racks to it and whatnot if I'm going on such a trip. I'm planning this in June by the way.
Any advice on how and what to pack if I'm going alone? Should I even attempt this? How much cash should I bring? What do I do if I find night falling with no civilization in sight? I'm pretty sure the path I'll follow takes me through some pretty unpopulated areas. Anyway, Thank you all for taking the time to read this, and I'll appreciate any advice I can get.
