I've always had this facination with self powered long distance travel.
Long trails, whether by foot or bike, hold a mystery. The journey, the friendships, life at a sustainable, slower pace.
Researching a cross continental bike trip, I came across this website. We minimalists can probably teach a few frugal tips.
However, it's good to be realistic as well.
The skill set necessary to do a trip includes repairing your own gear, able to change direction, be innovative and persistant in goal achievment.
This summer I'll be working and playing in the Grand Tetons.
Future adventures are unfolding.
"Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great." ~Mark Twain
