Touring Advice

Advice is nothing more than bad experience rehashed as a lesson

Advice is what you ask for when you already know the answer to a question but wish you didn't.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
Yogi Berra

I offer this advice to you in order that your tour will go smoothly. You will encounter things that you didn't think of in advance and you will regret some decisions you make on tour. This is my advice - you can take it or leave it.

  1. Don't take directions from locals
  2. Take lots of maps - detailed and general both
  3. Read some other travel logs online and in books
  4. Be a master at bicycle maintenance. Be able to disassemble, repair, and reassemble all parts.
  5. Learn about the route in advance
  6. Enjoy it!
