    cross country

    typically the trip has been 30 days. However that is west to east with the prevailing winds to help. With him showing east to west he will be fighting a head wind most of the trip.

    i'm thinking about 2 months.it's no race.i'll be pulling a yak big tow with me with about 40-45 pounds of gear. my pushing it days are over but i can still do 100 miles a day with no problem.i'm doing it solo,with no support vech.with me.and i plan on doing a lot of sight seeing along the way.i'll stay as close to "water" as i can and hug the coast wherever i can.Malsackj is right though.i will be going into wind most of the way.oh well,what dont kill ya just makes ya stronger!!ride on

    Awesome, please take us along with you. Post your twitter account so we can follow along. Plus any other places you will be posting. Heck I don't even have a twitter account but will get one to follow along. Good luck, I hope that the biking spirits are looking down on you and it is all smooth and mother nature decides to blow the other way for a few months.
