The sheer volume of that form of pad would be discouraging to me. How are you going to carry it?One of the MANY disadvantages. I suspect he became progressively less comfortable as the trip went on... though he'd probably argue he could simply visit the local Mailbox Etc to replenish!We had a friend who cycle-camped using 2 or 3 layers of bubble wrap for a pad. How we laughed. It was uncomfortable and cheap. He reckoned he could have made a 5ft thick mattress of bubble wrap for the cost of our Neo-Air.Didn't the "popping" every time he turned over keep all the others awake?
stay alert while ridingThis is clearly your best protection.
I am planning on beginning this trip in early Aug and assume that I can do it in a little over one month.Sounds reasonable. I did about 70 miles a day and made it from Bellingham, WA to Dalbo, MN in 33 days along the Northern Tier.
We're coming to do the Southern Tier this spring so if we bring our 'meths' Trangia burner this spring (as well as our propane / butane head) it sounds like we'd best look out for Yellow HEET.Yes, and it's easy to find, very inexpensive and sold in convenient quantities.
