I one way more preferable than the other?

We live in NE Ohio so we are ready for a bit of warm weather.
My wife was asking about services and whether things will be back to normal after the snow storm?

Just saw your post. I am waiting on this map as we are considering doing the loop in late March.

Routes / Parks Peaks and Praires ?

A question for anyone who has ridden any part of this route. I know it is newly published but hoping someone has some experience.
How late in the season can one get over the climbs/peaks and still have"good" weather?

Routes / Great Divide Route question

Curious how to get to the start and then back to the start if doing the whole route?
Just watched a video about someone riding it and it got me thinking.

Surly Long Haul Trucker,56cm,26" wheel size. Black Frame and Fork with uncut steerer tube.Just ridden for 1 tour. I am selling as I am going up a size.
This is frame and fork only.
$350+ shipping via Bike Flights

We also use TracFone for our service provider. I bought 2 new smartphone,Blu brand, and use Osmand offline map on them. We can the download our routes and they work great!
We just returned from a 3 month Europe tour and my wife has a Garmin on her bike and I use my phone.

I have Salsa brand bar tape on the Crazy Bars as it has some cushion to it. I have shellacked cloth tape on another bike. Don't think I would tour on the shellac tape.

I switched after our cross country tour and a European tour from butterfly bars to a Velo Orange Crazy Bar. I have ridden  it across Canada and 2 Europe tours and just returned from a 3 month Europe tour a few days ago.
Plenty of hand positions and I like to have my hands/ arm spread out for fast descending and for rough tracks.

We flew to Europe last year and we are going again this year using Iceland Air. We prepay our bike baggage fee in advance and receive a discount. $80 USD each way. Plus there are no questions at the airport. All the paperwork is done. And the bike box size is very generous.
