Awesome!!!  This was the exact info I was hoping to find on this site.  Yes I'm fully aware of Rt 6 and the desolation.  My plan is to use tactics I use while climbing big walls.  I do more climbing then riding so hence the reason for getting involved with this site.  Needless to say I'm planning to bring a 3 gallon collapsable water jug.  If the heat is really bad I'm considering riding at night (at least from Benton to Tonopah). 

But I'll tell ya what really scares me...  Is the drunk redneck driving from the Eastern Side of the Sierra to Tonopah.

Thanks again

Tim

Sweet!  Good knowledge.  I'm actually going to head south through Tonopah NV to Cedar City UT.  If I take off from MCMWTC (Bridgeport CA) and have to head up to the Fallon route (rt 50 i think) that may take a little longer then I want.  Basically want to just start moving in a easterly direction as quick as possible.  So thats why I chose the 395 to the 120 to hwy 6.   But who knows that may change between now and then. 

I'm also going to be pulling a trailer instead of bags.  I realize that I'll be heading into burly early spring conditions and do not want to shiver bivy at night. 

Thanks again and everyone be safe.

Great Intel guys.  I just downloaded the CO scenic bike map.   :o  WOW talk about a bike friendly state.  Now if I can get the weather to cooperate.  Thanks a bunch.

Great site!

Hello everyone my name is Tim and I was hoping to ask a few questions of this group for an upcomming fund raiser I'm planning.  My project is based on a transamerican ride.  I'll be riding from Marine Corp Mountain Warfare Training Center in Bridgeport CA to 2d Marine Division in Camp Lejune NC.  Your all probably wondering why Marine base to Marine base.  My fund raiser is called Operation Awakening and its mission is to raise funding and awareness for our returning wounded warriors.  I myself have served in the Marine Corp for 4 yrs (2d Recon Bn / 2d Mar Div).  

With that said my first question is this... Is there any TYPE of US hwys that I cannot ride on?  In other words my route has been tentatively planned (Date of Departure: 4/10/12) and (Date of Arrival: 6/21/2012).  I was going to post up my Google Map link but I think I'll wait till I can create more of a Dialog within the specific state forums (i.e. post route questions based on state.  

The above question will give me a better understanding of what US roads I can travel.  My plan is to pick up the TA route in Pueblo CO but the real crux will be from Bridgeport CA to Pubelo CO (going thru the desert and mountains) and then again from Damascus VA to Jacksonville NC.

Thanks ahead of time and I look forward to the interaction.
Tim
