I only had to find the forum link once.  Saved to my favorites.  Have a folder with links to all my favorite forums in one place.

I would Google "Surly Long Haul Trucker Review".  You will get about 38,000 pieces of information to gander at...

Saw your post in the Classified section and it seems taking a 65 lb dog and

1. Bike Tow Leash or Springer America
2. A water resistant blanket such as Tuffo brand with carrying case.
3. Water Proof Seal Line Bags for food.
4. Sleeping Bag for doggy.
5. Clothes and padded doggy shoes

goes against the minimalist and lightweight touring frame of mind...

Check out Big Wheel Bikes in Georgetown.  They rent mountain bikes, hybrid bikes and road bikes by the day, week, or month.

Watch the movie 'Ride the Divide' for a good overview of the various trail/road conditions along the route.  It is available on iTunes and sometimes you can catch it on the Documentary Channel.

If you are looking to get to the nearest airport you can give this outfit a try:

I believe you will need a passport.  Just take off your shades and answer any questions politely.

Just signed up for a ACA tour on the Great Divide in Montana next July.  Plan to ship my bike to Whitefish early and arrive a couple days before the tour starts.  Are there any economical places to stay/camp in Whitefish itself during the summer months?

You can get quality tires like the Schwalbe Marathon with Kevlar protection in the 16" size to fit the Bob.
