Well just to confirm, I will be attending this epic journey with you, Mudd.
We also have a serious group of four other individuals looking to join as well; they are also on ADV and will chime in eventually. Their route may differ slightly but I am interested! I also might recommend a slight detour or two, it was nice reading all the experienced members' recommendations, too.
Beverly will be attending this journey as well. Be sure to bring the tow hooks and I'll tow you to safety
