Southern Tier - East to West Timing
« on: July 25, 2023, 10:02:33 am »
Intending to do the Southern Tier early next year.  Was initially planning West to East, but now considering East to West.  I have read all the info on the site, including the statement" "... westbound departures could occur as early as February to be across the desert by the end of April. "

Is early Feb or mid-Feb a better time to plan on starting th etrip?

I think it depends on how many miles a day you plan on shooting for, given that days are shorter and mornings are colder. I'll be following the replies here since I'm thinking of the same thing!

Thanks for the reply.  Looking at 50-70 per day averaging about 60, 52 days riding and about 8 rest days for a total of about 60 days.
