Two years ago, I used the Adventure Cycling Transamerica maps to tour across all of Virginia and another 70 miles into Kentucky. I found the maps to be generally excellent.
One problem, however, was sometimes experiencing a cycling day that was either too long or too short, based on the available places to spend the night. For example, the first available motel/campground was, say, 30 miles from my starting point. The second place was 50 miles from my starting point. I would have to stay at the first place (a much too-short cycling day) because I just don't do 80 miles (yet).
Apparently, VA is not like the west in that you can camp almost "anywhere."
Any suggestions for alleviating this problem in my upcoming Transamerica05 tour? Other routes? Friends who want to take me in for the night? BTW, a few other places were available to spend the night along the route, but they charged way over my budget ($100, roughly).
