JimF - I did check out the wealth of information at the web page.  You are correct, it answered many questions.  TY.

mlt22193...I headed over to FEI's store near St. Paul, MN the other day.  Great sales as you stated.

paddleboy17 - I plan two short, regional tours yet this fall.  Then, prior to leaving next spring, I will actually begin the trip at lake Michigan and travel the 250 miles back to my home in west central WI.  That will be my shake down cruise.  I will then evaluate, make adjustments and leave from home.

staehpj1 - I do have canoe and vast amounts of camping experience.  Your idea about reading about tours is well taken.  And yes, I would take the Northern Tier using the AC maps.

TulsaJohn - I like this advice.  In short, take a deep breath, have confidence and enjoy.

TY all for the tips.

Drink beer, gain weight.  Ride bike, lose weight.

I am beginning the process of planning a tour that will begin in mid May of 09.  It is now late August of 08.

I have never toured and seek advice on where to begin planning a tour from Wisconsin to Washington state.  I am 58 years old and am retired.  I currently have no travel partner but will attempt to find one.

I will need almost all of the equipment for a self contained tour.  I will need almost all specialized clothing. I will camp most of the time and cook most of my own meals.

Given that scenario and time line, how would you begin preparations?
