I bicycled 4 times across USA and circled Australia with normal leather boat shoes.
two feet on the ground pushing the bike up the hill. Make sure you've got cleat covers if you're using road pedals.

Nonsense. Lies. Fantasy. Whatever. SPD cleats are attached to the shoe soles with two bolts. Allen bolts. They are about 1/2 inch long. If they got loose, the cleat would wiggle and squirm for miles and miles. Anyone would notice this. You would immediately stop and see your bolts are maybe coming loose. You would then get out your 3mm Allen wrench and tighten them. When you got home you would take the bolts out and reattach them using blue Loctite. They cannot fall out by themselves without you knowing they are going to fall out for hundreds of miles before they fall out.
Someone I ride with has Shimano sandals and didn't think the sole was stiff enough. I'll have to check out Lake sandals. I'm not familiar with them.
May in Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Indiana you can easily get 40s at night. Likely upper 40s. June in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, east Colorado expect lows of 50s likely.I can tell you from personal experience that overnight temperatures in the high 30's have occurred in mid-Ohio in mid-June.
Leaving Virginia in early may and finishing in Seattle beginning of july what kind of low temperatures should I be expecting.
On the 22T inner chainring, I am looking into that and will switch that out if feasible cost wise.
Currently I've a Surly LHT. My current triple ring gearing range extends approx. from 18 gear-inches to 109 gear-inches. I do need the 18 - 19 range for climbing loaded but I do run out of top end gearing on a regular basis.
The only change I would consider is a fitting smaller 24t inner chainring.If you are going to go to the trouble of swapping out the inner chainring why not go ahead and do 22t?
