Connecting ACA Routes / Re: Transamerica E-W but ending in Seattle
« on: April 27, 2010, 09:25:10 pm »
my wife and I are doing the same route (on our tandem - starting around may 24th).  we plan on deviating from the TA in Missoula, heading up to whitefish/kalispel area to hook into the northern tier route.  This ends north of seattle(sedro-woolley)
. I will be visiting relatives in seattle in mid-may to map out the route from there to where the NT route ends (approx. 70 miles?).

An alternate route is described in Stephanie Kurz's book Cycling the trans am goes NW from Oregon to Seattle but includes 30 plus miles or so on an Interstate.

planning to do the transam next summer on a tamdem.  Looking for advice on which direction to travel (prevailing winds? -grades on mountain passes?) and also best months for optimal weather conditions. We plan on taking 2 1/2 to 3 months.
