Some of us actually like huge expanses of nothing.
Wifey and I just returned from 9 days bumming around Colorado. I had some roads in mind but no itinerary to speak of and it was awesome. We rode anywhere from 100 miles to 250 per day depending on the roads and what looked good, we literally planned one day at a time and often while drinking our morning coffee. We're foodies so before the trip I googled a lot of the major towns we might go thru and wrote down notes on my maps about good cafes and restaurants. But for lodging we just winged it, we carried camping gear but rain almost every day made us opt for cushy rooms most of the time, and we never had trouble finding a good place to stay, even labor day weekend. That's how we roll. -al
