You might want to invest in the ACA map (Section 7) as it will detail the route nicely. Although you will use only a small portion of the map it might be worth it.
I'll do some research and see if I can find out who does maintenance for the Pass.
I believe I've read reports that indicate the dirt sections are pretty awful to near unrideable when wet.
I doubt gear creep will be a problem, I'm a minimalist backpacker and invested a lot of $$$ in lightweight gear a few years ago, that I plan to keep for a long time. My base gear weight (no food and water) is around 22 lbs, and that simply won't go up because I hate lugging any more weight than that around on my back (or my bike).
what is aadt?
...where I can find alcohol for my Trangia Camp Kitchen. I try at Walmart but they have only propane and other fuel. Which is the name of the product here in the US?
I'm planning to ride around Mt Hood in a couple of weeks and have hear conflicting opinions on the I-84 sections and specifically the Tooth Rock Tunnel. Anyone have thoughts?
I was thinking of riding over Lolo Pass rather than route 35 to Government Camp. Anyone have thoughts on Lolo Pass and the possible dirt sections (also conflicting reports).
One more thing - are there lockers available for at the train or bus stations for something pannier sized?
If you need a good book for the tour, definitely stop at the giant, independent book store in town. Can't remember the name, but it's famous.
There is also a big outdoor store in the downtown area. Can't remember the name of that, either...
On a touring bike over very, very hilly terrain so I only average about 14 miles per hour.
We're planning to leave in the middle of May. Is cold weather clothing/gear required? What kind, how much?? We have big agnes sleeping bags rated at 15degrees. What type of clothing should i consider, rain gear/winter clothing?
Stability, well I found myself not being able to go as fast as I would have liked with sideways wind gusts.
