not sure if anyone is aware but there are some statistics on this very here website.
from homepage go to the 'register ride' tab and then hit 'statistics'.
if scroll thru all graphs there is one that depicts 'costs per day'.

thought kinda interesting and all that jazz....

yeh, i think there's a guide book out there i'll try and check out before doing route and maybe piece things together if interstate is involved.
obviously some extensive route investigation via maps/etc needs to take place...maybe even drive parts of it before hand?  we'll see.

great job...and idea!

i'll have to look at some better road maps and try and incorporate va creeper trail.
i've heard good things about that trail.

also doing the route during music festival season (esp the wayne henderson festival) would be pretty sweet.

was wondering if anyone has done a bike trip on the "crooked road" route in southwest virginia????
looks pretty cool, esp with it being music oriented.

here's rough map of it.

more deflating than a flat tire.

how about taking the natchez trace parkway up to nashville (northern terminus) and then the few hundred miles to get to cherokee, nc (don't have map infront of me, but i/m sure it's less than UR).

if you did connected the two parkways that'd be near 900 miles worth of low traffic/nearly car free riding...on pavement.

there are good cycling specific books on biking each parkway (natchez and blue ridge). 
def check them out to help plan your trip.

"you're a lot more likely to run into a bear than a jogger"

that exact thing happened to me when i did the allegheny mtn bike loop and was 40 miles deep on greenbrier river was pretty awesome.

at days end i discovered i had lost my sleeping bag.

that was not so awesome.

link is to descriptin of ACA's tidewater potomac route.
in it it describes use of the ferries, etc...not sure if that helps or not or gets the ball rolling.

yeh....FOOD,INC was awesome movie.
I was gonna recommend it when I posted this morning, but alas, after working night shift my mind couldn't recall the name of it. ha.
I also assumed you prob had seen it.

When I went to see it there were folks lining up buying bucket loads of popcorn and of course the movie focused a lot on all the corn in our diet.
Gotta love the irony of it all.

looks like you're route will swing close to staunton, va.
if that be the case then you will most def need to stop at polyface farms and hang out with joel salatin.

mr. salatin and his farm are talked about extensively in the book "the omnivores dilemma". 
so ch-ch-check it out.

maybe if you do a north to south route (i.e. seattle to san diego) you'd find more of what you're looking for (i'm guessing not just local but healthy/quality local foods). 

even a north/south of the east coast will find you biking through plenty farmer's markets and most likely on a more daily basis?????
