I need to back off a little on my obsessive reading and viewing regarding the GDMBR. It's still a long way off. I'll be purchasing the updated book, and the maps will wait until sometime next year. Mostly what I need to do is update Jodi's trike, the trailer, and do more training rides. But I did come across a couple of resources that may help other folks considering the route. Mostly I've been learning about what to avoid--New Mexico dirt roads after the rain! We'll have to be weather hawks to keep a very tight perspective on what is coming our way. With the trikes and a trailer, we'd be absolutely stopped dead by the mud featured in the film by the wonderful English woman on her "megamoon," a cute term for an "extreme" honeymoon. The Crazy Guy on a Bike journal gave me a good look at road surfaces et al. It seems clear to me now that the route with proper workarounds and planning and a willingness to suffer can be done on trikes with a dog. We'll see how the training progresses.
From Crazy Guy:
A great short film, this is notable in that the couple not only started from the south, but finished in Banff in October! Burrrrr....:
Keep the adventure cookin'.
