Tony, Thank you for the link. Since they are in the 0.001%  I think I will pass for today (and get a mirror)

I clicked on to your url and saw the familiar words "Your going to do what?" As I started reading only just few lines... My eyes started to tear up... Not sure I can read the rest. Not right now anyway. I hope you have a wonderful trip. ps. I think the idea of slowly building up miles (pre-trip) is going to be the most common sense idea for me to follow. Really enjoyed this thread. Take care. Its great you are able to do this together.

Oh well...

At least my wheels have been turning from just reading these few posts. Lots of things to consider when it comes to the need for a good nights sleep.

I am hopeful, but, it takes "two" to agree on the details...

I never realized that there were people against bikers until I read some posts on this board that described it.

I was expecting that sleep would come easier, faster, and more sound on a bike trip. Of course, I was imagining country settings. (Then again, Tony mentioned vigilance, so that could be an issue)

Oh,  "other" would answer to someone who needs to be knocked out with sleeping pills.

You could mix and match your answers to suit your needs with optional explanation.
If I could separate the top 2 questions from the bottom 4 questions, that might make more sense.

Thank you for all of your help! I have printed all this information out and am keeping it for when I will be able to make this trip. At this point in time I am going to take baby steps towards my goal.  Lord Willing... I will be able to climb this step at a time.

Have not seen dr. yet. Thinking at this point: Gallbladder...

Thank you so very much!

I just recently found something out accidentally.  I have been made acutely aware of the fact that by digesting food better:

Sleep comes 90% faster then before
There are no night leg cramps
Sleeping on a too hard or too soft a mattress didn't matter (neither was noticed)
The night seems to go by swiftly. (I am not sure this is good or bad)

I hope whatever your situation is when you are biking that you awake refreshed every day that you bike.
If I could have a string of hostels between Maine and Wisconsin... My goal would be to make sure everyone had a good nights sleep. It would be neat to offer juicing as an option. Along with another idea which would make sure no body was in any form of pain. :) Enjoy your travels. Enjoy your life.
