+1. Maybe some Ortlieb Sport Packers as noted above. I have a pair. They hold a good amount without being obscenely large like their Bike Packer companions. And they are waterproof.

Motels will usually be available. But be prepared for rain. Lots of it. And be aware that the usually reliable Pacific Coast tailwind (if you're going from north to south) become a headwind during storms, which usually come in one after the other all winter. That means with the rain, you'll also usually get headwinds. January-February are high rainfall months in a fairly high rainfall area.
Is there any reason why the southern section of Sierra Cascades took the "mountain" route instead of "hills and valleys"?
So, airlines don't charge you extra for oversized bags ?
According to United's site:
Any Baggage whose length+width+height is greater then 62 in will get charged for oversized baggage. It's bad enough they charge $35 for the first bag and $25 for the second, but if it's larger then 62in then they charge even more. I'm hoping to fit my bike in one and the BOB trailer in another. Has it been your experience that the 62 in restriction is not enforced by airlines ?
I have a partner now that will be joining me for my cc tour next summer. We have decided to dip our wheels in Long Beach, NY. We want to see the Statue of Liberty, Twin Towers Memorial, Niagra Falls and Times Square. All of these are within the same area, correct? Or are they too far apart from each other. I am totally not familiar with the NY area.
OK everybody, let's keep our eyes on forum etiquette here. Discussion of risks, which ones your feel worth taking, and why: these are all fine. Comments about an individual's motives for writing, personal character, and the like are not fine. I have removed some of the latter in this thread.
I'll tell you the same thing I've told others. It seems my journal bugs you.
Maybe he wants music before rolling out or while in camp or during rest stops. Yes, au naturel is best, but whenever the topic of music comes up, people always feel the need to wade in with the smug "I don't listen to music while riding."
Um, yeah, the sounds of the wind/birds/rivers/streams/crickets/and my fellow riders are about the best sounds on Earth for me when I tour.
