Just drove the section between Apache Junct. and the summit of 60 to the east. That's some nasty riding in there. It wouldn't be so bad going east-west because you'd be headed downhill and get through it quickly. I saw one guy pushing his loaded bike uphill headed east. Did not envy him. Watch out for that bit for sure--high traffic, trucks, many places with no shoulder. Ugh. Might want to check into riding around the north side of the Superstitions, but that will have it's own challenges for sure.
Best of luck! I'm feeling the need for another long tour. Haven't been on one since 2012.
This section of US 60 is part of why we did a major reroute on the Southern Tier in late 2015: Major Route Change: Southern Tier in AZ and NM.
Twin Lakes Fishing & Camp in Hawthorne is probably your best bet. The campground closest to the route has closed down. Twin Lakes is 70-80 miles west of St. Augustine depending on which route you take.Thx Ty. Are you familiar with the area? Did you do a Google search?

Check out:If I recall correctly, the FlightJacket is UGQ's older TQ design. It might compress better, vs keeping the footbox better lofted in the Renegade. When I bought mine, I had read reports that the Renegade design was preferred, for folks that experience cold feet... But of course I never tried the other, so I can't attest to that myself, but I CAN say that I haven't gotten cold feet, even down to -3°F.

I changed it to use as much of the Transamerica Trail as I could- trade off of known cycling route vs. mileage.ACA routes are wonderful, but they are definitely not designed to get you from point A to point B quickly. If you have only 4 weeks to get from coast to coast, and you have a number of fixed points you need to hit, I'm afraid your route will be constrained to pretty-much suck. I suggest you see if you can relax any of the constraints so that you will have a better time.
