Nice video. Are you from the Dayton area?

You may want to include Yellow Springs in your trip. It's only 8 miles north of Xenia, and is a really neat little town, with some good bars and restaurants. Also the home of David Chappelle who frequents (and owns) some of the downtown area. You won't be disappointed in the Little Miami Trail. There are some nice campgrounds right on the river.

I averaged 60 to 70 miles a day, and had several 80+ mile days with no problems. We got bogged down a bit with headwinds and heavy rain when the tornado hit Minneapolis.  Other than that, and some climbs between Muscatine, Iowa and Stillwater, it was a relatively smooth ride. Many of the campgrounds were located directly on pristine lakes, which added to the experience. Would love to do that ride again someday. I have a photo log on my Facebook page if you're interested.

I did this ride in 2011, although I took the ferry across Lake Michigan. Traffic was never an issue, and no problems finding good campgrounds. I used the ACA maps exclusively. I did make a side trip to Hayward, Wisconsin that was well worth it. Great trip, with beautiful scenery. You'll have a great time.
