NYC->Richmond, VA & TransAmerica Trail Rough Itinerary

Here is a (very rough) overview of the potential itinerary for this big bike trip. I would strongly urge this be taken with a grain of salt if not hell, a whole salt mine. This thing will be life. And in life, things happen, and sometimes the plan must be diverted from. This is life if life were only hopes and dreams and aspirations. At a glance, here is a one-click overview.

If you or anybody else that you know live somewhere along this route, or would be willing and interested in meeting up along it at some point, please do reach out. We are looking for all the lodging and help and friends and goodwill that we can get, and part of the idea in sharing this is that it keeps our friends and contacts in the loop to be able to tap into that network.
