I plan to do the Southern Route eastbound hitting Murphyboro, Il about May 15. You will be 30 - 60 days ahead of me .  Any "heads up" advice would be appreciated.  Blackbear

Thanks, Staehpj1, I have talked to people whoused that tent without a fly, although, Sierra Design did mak a fly for that model.  I really like that tent but am concerned about condensation.  That plus it weighs about nine pounds has led me to pick up a Cabelas backpacking tent with a fly at three pounds. I am planning a St. Louis to Greensboro, NC cycling trip in may and figured shedding the six pounds was a wise decision..  Blackbear

Thanks, David. The tent is 5-7 years old. I have tried Sierra Design, etc etc. SD now longer makes tht tent.  I was hoping to find an old Fly or someone parting-out their old tent.  Blackbear

Brian:  Try Croks or the knock-offs from Bass Pro.  They weigh next to nothing.

Papa6K:  I've done the Katy many times.  I had problems with flats and the thorns only on the September ride. All other times my rode bike did well.  Blackbear
