Advice please on best route
« on: July 14, 2009, 01:34:38 pm »
This is an outline plan - would appreciate any comments or better route as still at the start of my planning.
Orlando to Mobile - no probs done this mostly already

Mobile follow "Underground" to "Lewis & Clarke "
Follow this north west to Fort Peck Montana and pick up the "Northern Tier" until I can head north to Vancouver.

Easy eh?  Seriously am open to anything but has to be road, not too keen on off roading.

Thanks Tony
Just starting to record my trips

In Washington, the best route is HWY 20, Northern Tier.  I90 in Central WA 9is freeway, rideable but bad headwinds especially in Kittitas County.  HWY 2 over Stevens Pass is pretty good except for about 30 miles from the summit westward.  It's rideable but not great, as shoulders are not the best and lots of curves.  There is lots of up and down on the NT in WA, but roads are less crowded and scenery magnificent.  This area, BTY, can be snowy and cole in the spring!
May the wind be at your back!
