Hi all, new member here. A little info about myself, I'm 22. in NE PA. A while ago I was at a job I hated, in a town I don't want to be in, so I thought a good way to get out would be a cross-country bike trip. See the west, have fun, and hopefully make some friends in the process. I'm sure I'll be having a lot of questions, so hopefully you all can put up with me. Just wanted to introduce myself.

Hi Bill,

Welcome to the world of XC touring.  Also check out http://www.crazyguyonabike.com.  There is a discussion board there and a lot of journals of other folks trips.

My daughter and one of her college room mates decided to do the TransAmerica last summer after graduation.  They invited me along and I think it was a great experience for all three of us.  If you are interested we kept a journal at:

We have a lot of information about things that did and didn't work for us.  I think you will find some good info there and the pictures should whet your appetite for your trip.

Pete

Welcome.

I'd like to suggest www.biketouringtips.com as a place to gather bike touring information.  Over 700 entries on bike touring on all topics and places.
