Anyway, I encourage you to do this trip. I assume that you are in my area (is it Bethpage, LI?); this great adventure is available from here just for the cost of spending a couple of days riding north. You do not have to buy a plane ticket, to arrange bike rental, paperwork, guides, etc., etc. Gotta do it.
yea, i guess you're right. i have to learn not to be so optimistic.
LI is correct. seems like a very feasible trip from here. i'm still in the midst making my bike more touring friendly but as soon as thats done i plan on taking some longer trips. i give you alot of credit venturing out on your own, i don't think i'd have the balls for that. thanks for all the good info, it will definitely come in handy!
