Thanks for the feedback.

In reply to PeterJack: As a Northerner myself, I can understand your frustration if you were trying to find somewhere to camp in the Pennine area; particularly if you were close to the Manchester, Leeds and Sheffield sprawl.

General Discussion / First tour for Brits in US
« on: October 19, 2012, 04:01:11 pm »
Hello all,

We've not been to the US before. Me and Mrs Stock are thinking about a cycle camping trip in in June 2013 lasting about a month. We're happy to link up different areas by using Amtrak if this adds to the experience.

As a couple in the late fifties we're used to 50 miles a day and have done Lands End - John O'Groats in the UK and Canterbury to Rome (1200 miles) this year. A section of the Pacific Coast looks good as does Yellowstone/Grand Teton. We also get the impression that just turning up at a campsite and asking for a pitch for the night and a shower is not always as straightforward as we're used to.

As complete beginners in the US some recommendations/advice would be really helpful.  Ta.
