My wife, son and I are riding from Boston to Seattle to SoCal. I know a lot of folks cross WY going through Gillette/Buffalo/Sheridan/Cody, but when we hit the Black Hills in SD we went south on the Michelson Rail Trail and are near Edgemont, SD. We are looking at crossing WY through Lance Creek or Lusk to Douglas or Glenrock to Casper to Shoshoni/Riverton to Dubois then to Jenny Lake. We'll then head north through Yellowstone to get back on the Northern Tier.
Anyone have advice on the roads through WY this way and where we might camp? (Our main concern is the first leg from 20 miles north of Edgement to Douglas, which is about 80+ miles of not much. I know not a big distance for most riders, but it is when you are riding with an 11 year old on his own bike.) Any other advice/suggestions appreciated!
