The screens on that screened shelter in Wisdom are in sad shape, so they're not much protection. I pitched my tent inside that shelter too. Worst mosquitoes I encountered were in Jeffrey City, but Wisdom was second place.
+1 on Twin Bridges Bike Camp. I stayed there last summer. There's free WiFi at the Laundromat. Restaurants in Twin Bridges are limited but sufficient. The mosquitoes were bad when I was there, but DEET made them a non-issue.
You will probably hear plenty of myths about aerobars, all from people who have little or no experience on them, and ones who didn't have them set up correctly. Don't believe them.
Also, if your budget is tight, take out as much money as possible when you use an ATM. You will almost certainly be changed double fees--one by your bank for using a "foreign" ATM machine and the another by the owner of the machine. That could easily be $3-$4/pop. If you are on a $10/day budget, that goes down to $9 if you are taking out money every 3-4 days.
Man, that's a great point, thank you!
Also, i plan on having my parents mail things to me along the way, including valuables like money or whatever else. How exactly would I go about it. Would I simply have to know where I will be in, say, a week, tell them the city and have them mail it to the post office? How does that work to have them mail things to me along the way?
I know that noodles can last for awhile and besides the sauce, i don't need much more than that. I really hope that my budget is WAY over what I need. I really like the idea of $10/day and I believe it's quite possible without much hassle.
There should be a law put in place, like New York State has, that would make it illegal to use a cell phone, while driving. Like cyclist, drivers should only be driving. In Europe, most Europeans, concentrate on driving only. I would also like to see a law in place that there would be an automatic year suspension, of ones drivers license, if convicted of running over a cyclist or pedestrian.
