our (anticipated) route
Above is an image of the (tentative, very tentative) route Aaron has mapped out for us using Google maps. Click on the image for a better view. We'll be starting at Point F (Philly), then headed westward toward Point A (San Francisco), via Pittsburgh, PA, Minneapolis, MN, Wall, SD (Wall Drug!), and West Yellowstone, MT. We chose this route because north-er is cooler in the summer. Also, Aaron wants to see his pals in Minneapolis -- and after a long time of having no response to Aaron's inquiries about what I'd like to see on the trip, I replied, "Wyoming." We decided ending in a city makes sense since we'll need an airport and a bike shop (to ship the bikes back to Philly). Plus, San Francisco will have much to offer us by way of celebration. And: last few days of the trip will be California wine country. Talk about incentive.
