Looks like a great trip, your post gives me some hope of doing the same thing. I went from a 8+ weeks off a year job (government budget cuts eliminated my position) to a very stressful job with almost no time off and little hope of doing something big on my bike. Now I have some hope that it is possible to squeeze something in like this in a short period of time!
