Having just been through the US we have to agree. We did changed our trajectory when we came to US, we skipped Florida and did some other modifications.
Rockies around beautiful Silverton were bloody cold tho!
But West-Southern US is nice indeed - loved it:
Will write more about US section of our expedition when we get there! (with the writing, that's far behind from the riding
Ride safe, Margus
