Thanks for the advice everyone! The route is yet to be determined. Judging from what I've read on this site, and based on my own desires I plan on doing exactly that. Plan light, pack light. I've got friends in California, Montana, North Dakota, Boston, NY, plus about an unlimited supply of national parks everywhere in between
. I'll definitely take all advice into consideration.
