It is an interesting design with no zippers using what looks like a quilt to cover an opening on the front of the bag.
But, even with bypassing the large towns there is still a Walmart every couple of days, gas stations, hotels, etc. My biggest concern with the route deviation is by bypassing the large cities you'll miss the bike shops.
Thanks for the insight! The trip is being postponed (my wife's job was downsized) but will hopefully happen this spring.
Afraid the days are long gone when I could or would tour on $50 a day so I can't give advice on accommodation but the scenery is great.It sounds like the $50 per day is for two people, so really $25 per day per person. Still, I'd think it should be doable if camping and reasonably frugal.
Good point stae. Bike paths around the PNW where I live are usually pretty good in my experience. I met some grim ones in MA but perhaps my view was jaundiced by the crappy weather. There was one on the TA, I can't remember where, that was about 100 yards long and finished in a field, literally a complete waste of time.Yeah, having lived in the Mid Atlantic US for most of my life I found the bikes friendliness of the PNW pretty awesome. Nice bike lanes, traffic lights that were bike aware, and street sweepers that actually cleaned bike lanes blew our minds because we had never seen anything like that before.
When they first came out they had a tendency to miss out bike paths
You may spend more time sleeping on top of it, for padding, than in it for warmth.
On the bags, would it be overkill to have a 32 degree bag for the high elevations in the West and then ship it home once into ... Kansas? We will have friends sending us re-supply items via General Delivery as we go along, so I am thinking a swap to a "lighter" bag could be accomplished.
