Unfortunately, living in South Carolina I cannot give much physical help. However I am very interested in the progress of this route, as I am currently in the early planning stages of the east/west leg of a cross country and back grand tour
. My biggest problem so far is I want to pass near Dallas, TX on my way to Los Angeles. I have found a possible way as far west as Anniston, AL. (about 70 miles east of Birmingham). so the first part of the way is pretty well off. Dallas to Los Angeles is still a big blank spot though.
A long time ago I drove from San Diego to Dallas along US 380. A very nice road, but that was 30 years ago, and I don't remember there being much along the way as far as overnight stays were concerned. At least not close enough to each other for practical self contained bicycle travel. And it only goes as far west as I-25 in New Mexico. Still, it remained my only known corridor. However
[comma] it is just a little over 300 miles from Dallas to Amarillo (200 to Oklahoma City). If the 66 route is finished by then it would be perfect, as I could pick it up there and it will take me all the way to El Lay!
So obviously I am going to watch this thread with great interest. Anybody have any wild ideas as to when this A.C.A. route might just come into existence?
