Which route has the most to recommend?  Scenery?  History?  Amenities?  Difficulty?
Camelback or no camelback?
Aerobars or no aerobars?
Tire width?
Aside from flats, which repair should we be prepared for?
I read alot about GPS.  Whatever would you need that for if you have a good set of maps?  The only thing I could think of is to help a support vehicle track the riders, and from my reading, that has a range of 6 miles max.  I would be very interested in any info.

Thanks for taking the time to read/answer.

I will turn 60 January 2007.  It has been a dream to bike accross America.  What better way to celebrate my 60th year!  My son is a schoolteacher, so can accompany me.  My wife and daughter-in-law and their two children will drive a support vehicle towing a mobile home.  I want to research this trip as thoroughly as possible.  We both have some biking experience (a century or two, we have both crossed Michigan), but would not be considered "avid bikers".  I think I might turn into one, though!
