Clem,

If you have Section 7 of the Lewis & Clark route (http://www.adventurecycling.org/store/index.cfm/product/48_5/lewis--clark-section-7.cfm), it shows an alternate route to stay on the Washington side of the Columbia River on SR 14 from Vancouver to US 97 where you would pick up the main route. Otherwise, you could cross the Columbia from Vancouver as someone else suggested on I-205.

Hope that helps.

General Discussion / Re: Cross Country Trip: Money, What To Do?

Also, i plan on having my parents mail things to me along the way, including valuables like money or whatever else. How exactly would I go about it. Would I simply have to know where I will be in, say, a week, tell them the city and have them mail it to the post office? How does that work to have them mail things to me along the way?

Hi there,

Have you looked at the resources available through the Florida DOT?

You could also contact the Bicycle/Pedestrian Coordinator for suggestions:

Dennis Scott
State Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator

fax: 850-245-1554
dennis.scott@dot.state.fl.us

Dwight Kingsbury
Assistant Pedestrian and Bicycle Coordinator

phone: 8502451520

Good luck and let us know what you find out.

Bicycle Route 66 / Re: Welcome to Bicycle Route 66!

You may be aware already, but if not, FYI:  There is in print a fine mapset giving a good overview of the Route 66.  It is a 8 map set, one for each state, called  "Here It Is, Route 66, The Map Series", by Jerry McClanahan and Jim Ross.  It is available on Amazon, and may help your research.

Thanks, we'll look into it.

cgarch,

Thanks for posting info on a detour for this closure!

Just received this report via Twitter:

> Long-term closure on #acapacificcoast between Palo Colorado Rd and Bixby Bridge in Big Sur. 40ft of road disappeared today.

This occurs on Map 47. CalTrans also reports that SR 1 is closed from 2.5 mi. S. to 1.5 mi. S. of Big Sur. No detour evident.

Welcome Danielle!

I am also looking for suggestions on a route from Fort Myers Beach to the Tamiami Trail east of Naples. Anyone familiar with navigating this urban area? So far we have looked on Google maps and charted our best guess of a route through the cities.

You might want to check your Google map suggestions against the maps found on the Florida DOT Bicycle Pedestrian page:

http://www.dot.state.fl.us/safety/ped_bike/touringInfo/ped_bike_touringInfo_maps.shtm

Or you could get in tough with their office directly for their opinion and/or suggestions:

Dennis Scott
State Pedestrian & Bicycle Coordinator
phone: 850-245-1527
fax: 850-245-1554
dennis.scott@dot.state.fl.us

Dwight Kingsbury
Assistant Pedestrian and Bicycle Coordinator
phone: 8502451520
fax: 8502451554
dwight.kingsbury@dot.state.fl.us


Hope that helps.

You might also want to take a look at the Florida county maps and other resources on their DOT Bicycle and Pedestrian pages:

Good luck and have a great trip!

Be sure to check the resources Colorado DOT has posted on their site for information on routing.

Never mind....after a really close review of a handful of wps i have discovered that if a waypoint is "on top" of another road i.e a bridge or overpass...the software didnt allways get it where it was intended....i.e itwas supposed to be on the "bottom" road....it recalulate a new route..

Aha, glad there was a reason things looked askew to you!

I am planning a Mobile Al to Springfield Mo(or St. Louis) in May 2011.  I overlaid sections the UGRR (T02150)and GR (D02280) and one of intersections confuses me.

Is there a reason that the two routes  don’t share the same roads between WP T020Z0/D02850 and T020T0/D028C0?


From what I can tell, between the two waypoints you indicate, the routes are both the same - the Natchez Trace Parkway. The waypoints that were created to show this were done by two different people and as such different selections were made.

I hope that helps.

Hi Nicolas!

You might want to sign up with www.warmshowers.org to find a place to stay in NY. Or anywhere else along the Atlantic Coast Route.

If it works for you, Monroeville is very welcoming of cyclists.  There is an air conditioned community center where you can spend the night.

Yes! Thanks for promoting Monroeville, one of our longest standing Cyclists' Only Lodging options. You can read more about them in a blog post:
