The newest version (2011) of the map shows the correct way to avoid the airport runway north of Del Norte which is accessible by vehicle. This re-route is also mentioned on the 2009 addenda.

No, ACA doesn't keep any records for speedy TransAm crossings.

Chinook Pass will be open June 23, 2011. Deep snow delayed the opening this year.

Look at the online journal site www.crazyguyonabike.com to see if anyone has written about their trip on the Underground Railroad.

The St. Francisville ferry has been shut down and the new Audubon bridge southeast of the ferry opened on May 5th. It is located about 3.4 mi. downriver from the ferry location. You do not need to go into St. Francisville to reach the bridge - the access is on US 61. We do not yet have directions on how to reach the bridge, please ask locally.

The Morganza Spillway was opened on May 14 to divert the Mississippi River floodwaters away from Baton Rouge and New Orleans. It is located just northwest of the town of Morganza on Section 5 map 78. At this time the road over the Spillway remains open. Call the Pointe Coupee Parish Sheriff to get up-to-date information.

Here is a link to the AZ and NM state bike/ped websites. You can see if they have any online maps to help you.

Connecting ACA Routes / Re: ACA TA route re floods

The number for the ferry operations as you get closer to Cave In Rock is 618-289-4599. I suggest the closest bridge upriver is at Old Shawneetown, IL and is about 30 miles northeast of Cave In Rock. Eastbound, from Cave In Rock, take Hwy. 1 north about 21 miles, then turn right (east) on Hwy. 13 about 9 miles to Old Shawneetown and cross the river. Go 2.2 miles, then turn right (south) on Hwy. 109. Go about 24 miles to Clay where you rejoin the route.

The link mentioned above makes more sense if you are on the Great Rivers Route, while what I'm suggesting makes more sense if you are on the TransAm.

Here's a map showing snow water content in the west, and when the percentages are high there is still a lot of snow up high:

I suggest calling local bike shops in Bend to get an idea of local conditions - if they can't tell you maybe they can recommend someone who can.

We're having a very heavy snow year here in MT, and a late spring, so snowmelt hasn't really begun yet, just at lower elevations.

Routes / Re: Carson Pass contingency plan
« on: May 03, 2011, 12:24:36 pm »
There are services over Carson Pass, though they may not be open. I suggest you call the ones that are listed on the map before you leave to find out what is available. As for camping, I think as long as you avoid private property, pull yourself off the roadside and be discreet, and pick up after yourself it shouldn't be a problem. You will be traveling through national forest land.

Routes / Re: Great Divide: North of Banff?
« on: May 02, 2011, 11:19:21 am »
Adventure Cycling hasn't done any research to extend the GDMBR north from Banff, mainly due to the reasons you mentioned.

Geologic instability and debris falling on Hwy. 1 at Alder Creek (just north of the Monterey/San Luis Obispo County line) have closed the roadway completely in both directions. It will be 4-6 weeks before the road is open again. Here are several sites to refer to for updates:

I checked online and it sounds like it'll be 4-6 weeks before the road is open again. Here are several sites to refer to:
