It seems to me that many bike tourist use SPD pedals?  What are the pros and cons for using the SPD vs regular road pedals.  Thanks.

General Discussion / Touring

I have not toured but want to get input from you who have about the feasibility of starting a fully loaded tour of the southern tier, from west to east, on Dec 1.  Even though I have given a little thought to this, I do not like cold weather that well. I may decide to drop the idea, depending on what you may have to say about the weather that time of the year.
I am going to list my concerns because I am confident that the experience is out there to help me.
1. I will be traveling on a '05 Rans Stratus.  It has respectible components.
2. Trailer or racks?
3. Is it a sign of insanity to be thinking of camping in the south that time of the year?
4. Cold weather gear.
5. Tent type.
6. Anyother information.
I have looked into the above but no decisions.
Arkansas is my home state.
