Trans Am Route, West to East
« on: October 06, 2003, 11:53:26 am »
I'm planning on starting the TA in May and riding a couple of weeks a year until I'm done. Can't take off 3 months to do it all one year (Too Bad).

I would be appreciative of any advice/hints on the ride.

I did the whole Trans Am, West to East, last summer.  It was awesome.  Starting in May, you'll probably encounter snow on the first big pass of the route, Mackenzie Pass.  And you may also have snow at other passes as well, as we did in Idaho.  I'd be happy to answer specific questions if you post any!  Regardless, you'll have a blast and it's certainly a "trip of a lifetime".

How would early June be in relation to snow over the Cascades?

And how daunting is McKenzie Pass?
