Well, originally I asked some other questions to start with, but these were removed by one of censors:

* Should I wear a bullet-proof vest all the time while cycling or just in the vicinity of schools?  ;)
* Under the second amendment, am I allowed to mount a submachine gun on my handle bar?  ;)

Which leaves me wondering if this seems not funny to the American mind or if the subject is too sensitive.  :-\

Anyway, thank you very much for your help.  :)

I am from Holland. I have cycled a lot in Europe, but I have never been to the USA. I am planning to fill this huge gap in my resume by cycling from Los Angeles to Anchorage this coming summer. This will be quite an adventure and I have a few questions.

I generally don't use cycle routes,  I prefer to set my own course using a map. For me that is an important aspect of the enterprise. Alternatively I could follow the Pacific Coast Route. Now my questions are:

* Will it be OK to cycle using just US state maps?
* Which brand of maps is preferable? The best I have seen so far is 1 : 700 000. It is quite important for me that all the camp grounds are indicated.
* Are good state maps readily available at e.g. gas stations in the US and Canada?
* Or should I get the Pacific Coast route anyway although that means carrying a five-map set for less than half of my trip?

I'm looking forward to your advice,
