My brother and I are currently planning a 5-6 day ride for the end of March/early April 2012. We're looking to do between 400-600 miles during the 5 days. We will stay in motels each night while carrying a light load of gear. We need airports at the beginning and end of the journey, as we'll be meeting each other from different states.
At the moment, we're looking into either section 1 or section 2 of the Southern Tier, but we're open to other sections as well. I'd love to know what sections people have really enjoyed on the Southern Tier. For a 500 or so mile section, what would you do again and again? Or, if you are familiar with sections 1 and 2, which would you suggest given my requirements?
