Hmmm... Time is one thing, but should I skip the eastern part of it, since I hear it is mostly gravel, and lot of it is being paved? I know OK is straight up flat gravel that goes on for milesócould be boring? Not sure.

Don't think by riding w/ someone you'll be safer.
Get to know your riding partner & learn about him or her from others too.
This is a very good ride & you'll not want a selfish bastard setting a stupid pace. Or learn you now have a leech as well as a bastard.
You'll have more fun at your relaxed pace.
