Temporary ACA Route Road Closures / Re: Routes TA
« on: May 10, 2011, 08:27:48 pm »
Illinois VDOT, road closures  This text file updates every few hours and the first thing on the list is the Cave -In-Rock Ferry.  It's still closed as of this posting.

If going Westbound, continue to follow F-055 and there will be a detour that takes you over 81.  The detour is marked with a "76 Bicycle" sign at the second bridge, but not the first.  We nearly turned around at the first bridge that was out, but kept going to be rewarded with the detour bridge.

Thanks for all the great posts.  I am new to posting to Forums and thought I would get an email for every reply.  I only received one email and when I checked the forum there were no other replies.  I am now off of work for last minute preparations and had time to look at the posts only to realize all this great information is now here.  We will use a combination of the suggestions and I am now more confident about not being lost!

General Discussion / Cue sheet assistance

I am planning a 6-month bicycle tour of the US starting April 10th. to celebrate my 6oth birthday (in June).  I am taking a little less traditional approach as I don't want to camp or carry all of my gear with me.  My husband is going to be my support and will drive a travel trailer for us to sleep in every night.  My 28 y/o son is going to bike with me.  I have purchased the TransAmerica, Pacific Coast, Southern Tier, and Atlantic Coast Adventure Cycling Maps.  I have been studying them and mapping out the specific route.  I have one major concern, however, and that is my ability to read the cue sheets while I am bicycling, since the type is quite small.

We have considered resizing them with a copy machine, using Google Maps via an android telephone for GPS or having my husband type it out every night in advance. None of these solutions seem ideal. Does anyone have any other ideas or advice to help with this issue?
