Clyde touring the Ohio To Erie Trail?

Have any of you folks in this wonderful subforum done the OTET? How many days did it take you and were there any stretches that seemed insurmountable due to having to pedal the extra weight?

I've got a group of co-workers that are itching to get out there next September and do it (that's the earliest we can all have the same week off for vacation). Should give us all plenty of time to get our setups figured out and condition a little better. Truthfully, I've got a couple half-centuries under my belt this year and feel mentally ready to try and tackle it NOW, but I know I'm not physically there yet.

I think my bike (seen here) will be alright, as it's amassed 2000 trouble-free miles since I've owned it.
