Never a problem riding many miles and I feel that it actually enhances my athletic performance (fat burning as opposed to sugar burning).
Standard Jetboil Flash/Sol etc. "pot" won't do 5oz. of dry pasta - too small. You could get one of their 1.5l or 3l group pots (the Sumo is 1.8l) but if you're traveling solo it's getting into overkill ('tho of course YMMV).
Understand what you mean, I just ended my first Ultracycling event from Paris to Milan and believe me...it was terrible talking about terrain! Exactly hills like yours in photo, I did 1322 km in 6 days and 9102 mt of altimetry! Crazy Better an high pass than 30 hills right! I think that the very hard part of my trip will be in the first part until Big Horn National Forest, then with the central states should be a more relaxed and fast trip. I thought to take northern tier from the start, but Yellowstone and Grand Teton have a very strong appeal!
I have done the ST a number of times, the atlantic coast three times and more, 2600 miles of the NT, the pacific coast, and several other areas of the USA.
My girlfriend and I will be cycling the TransAm West to East this August. Although we both cycle to work currently (3-4 miles each way) neither of us have any touring experience.
We are both relatively young (25 and 24) and have a lot of enthusiasm. We will have to complete the TransAm in 90 days.
I am getting a bit concerned that this might be too much of an ordeal. I am less worried about myself, but I wonder whether it might be too much for her.
What do people think? Should we be training, or can we just rock up and go?
