As Miller points out,fruits and vegetables seem pretty scarce from mid-Kansas to mid-Colorado. Grocery stores help (lunch food). I was pretty excited when I found a great salad bar in Pueblo; seemed like a long time since I'd seen one.

It seems to me that is useful information. As is the fact that they apparently work well for some folks in their usage.
That is useful information, but not in the context of the OP quest. Opinionated responses to posts, especially when some one is seeking sources and not opinions, just does not kick the can down the can down the road much.
This is old. I hope it doesn't branch out into a side discussion here. I am sure the archives is loaded with this topic.
Multifuel stoves can use petrol, kerosene, mineral spirits, etc. so you have a lot of choices and fuel sources but the stoves tend to be more expensive.
I'd agree you should go with the cheapest of the bikes mentioned. All are identical enough to not make a difference. All can have their gearing changed to be low or lower. The triple cranksets will take 22 teeth if a four arm mountain bike crank using 64mm bcd. Or will take 24 teeth if a road triple with 74mm bcd inner ring. And all will take a 32 or 34 tooth rear cassette. Hopefully anyone buying any of these bikes will DEMAND a 22 or 24 tooth ring in front and a 32 or 34 rear cog in back. Before they leave the shop.
Today I have been reading a lot about Salsa Vaya 3. That would be a good touring bike, right? As I would need a 54, I would get 700 tires. The disc brakes don´t seem to bad.
The Salsa bike will make a fine touring bike for heavy loaded touring. And lightly loaded touring too. Pretty much identical to the Surly Long Haul Trucker, Trek 520, REI Novara Randonnee. All are 9 speed I think. Triple crankset. Bar end shifters. Steel frame and fork. All will work fine.
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?
So on a low-traffic road without shoulders, it's usually not a problem to ride in the traffic lane. So where should you position yourself in the traffic lane? My preference is to ride where the right tires of the vehicle would normally be.
I grew up in San Diego...done a lot of car camping near the border...that's why I asked about biking it...still think it might be a BIG mistake.
