Hi Victoria, try Wundersearch really good web site. If you can't find it I can email you the site unless you know how I get it onto here.  I am leaving Florida in Feb E to W so give us a wave as you go past.

I can give you general information for the eastern part of the route. In March and April it will be cool to warm. April is still warm in Florida, in the eighties and seventies, and you do not get into the nineties (usually)until July, possibly June.

You can trace the weather at different points by googling for weather and temperatures in various states at different times of the year. For example, if you google for past weather and temperatures in March in Arizona, you may get March weather information for  the past twenty years or so. That can give you a better idea of what you can expect to encounter.

I was gearing up to the the S-tier myself this winter. However, a job opportunity I had been waiting to see about has come through, and I will be going half way around the world to do it. I will be traveling by jet, and not by bike. That's the way it goes sometimes.

I am going to the middle east. I have worked there before.

Thanks for the positive comments about my advice and knowledge. I have done a considerable amount of bicycle touring at home and internationally, and while bicycle touring is not rocket science, I do have bits of knowledge which can be useful to the new long distance bicycle traveler. I have also read several books on the subject. My knowledge on the subject is limited, but also cogent and useful in its own category.

I would like to continue contributing to this forum if my advice and knowkedge can be of use to someone out there.
