I appreciate all of the input. Like I said, don't mean to sound naive. I driven over 2 and a half millon miles in Canada and the US over 30 years so I know the country very well. Never been out of Michigan on a bicycle and just want to be prepaired. I'm taking the trip to have fun and enjoy the ride. Don't want to make it sound like I'm going to be freaked out because I won't. The reason for the bear concern is, over the last couple of years several people have been killed between Glacier and Yellowstone. My wife and I have hiked the back country in south central Montana and have never experienced a bear but always had a nevous feeling being out in their enviroment. Like I said, any information helps.

mikefm58,
The only areas you should have any prblem with is DC and NY city. I do believe as far as states go, Illinois is the only state that doesn't recognize other states CCW's. http://www.carryconcealed.net/legal

General Discussion / First long distance ride?
« on: February 02, 2012, 04:38:09 pm »
Taking my very first long distance ride starting mid June. I'm taking a train from Lapeer Michigan to Everett Washington then riding back to my home in Alpena, Michigan. I will have a pretty good idea of what to expect because there is a gentleman from my area that has crossed the country 3 or 4 times, mostly central US and Southern US . One of my biggest concerns is riding through grizzly bear country and having to possibly camp, (I plan on moteling it through bear country but things happen) and camping the rest of the way home. Just curious to hear from people that live and ride in bear country and people that have rode through bear country that don't live in it? Thoughts on carrying a firearm traveling solo, (have permit), bear spray? Do Indian reservations look favorably on cyclist, (don't mean to sound naive, never been on one or through one). Also, don't mean to sound like a chicken because of the grizz but I'm live in an area where the animals are afraid of humans. I also know that the odds are low that I would encounter a bear if proper precautions are taken but gizzly bears seem to have it out for people from Michigan, (2 Michiganians killed near Cooke City, Mt last year, one while me and my wife were traveling to Cooke City). Just curious to hear people's thoughts. Thank you.
