Tour of a life time

My father is half way done with a 3 year probation has been changing him for the better. We have to decided to celebrate his freedom 2 years from now with a bike tour starting from Fort Worth, TX to Plant City, FL (next to Tampa, FL) to see old family and friends. (He will be going that length, I might keep going north). I've done some overnighters and have an decent rig (Surly Cross Check with rear Arkle bags) and he doesn't have a rig yet. Actually just got his first bike (a single speed flip-flop hub). He's an active runner and incredibly excited about doing all this. As am I due to this has been a dream of mine for long time now.
So, I am here to ask advice and gain knowledge from first hand people about our routes, what to expect, diet, physical, rig, etc. I look forward to getting to know this community.

Hello Trae,

Welcome to Bike Forums.

The Touring Forum may be the best place to post.

Have fun, bring a camera for many pics to share, ride safe.

Rode through OK on a tour from NY to LA in 2009.

Hello and welcome!

To err is human. To moo is bovine.

Who is this General Failure anyway, and why is he reading my drive?
