Dude, there are a lot of similarities between where you are now and where I was when I did the TAT. Least of which are the bike and profession.

I will be following your report. Thanks for taking the time.

I think you're doing the right thing.

Interested in some words of advice?
- Don't rush the TAT.
- Take your time. Meet people. Share stories.
- Camp as much as you can.
- Once you get out past Oklahoma camping is easy.
- Also check out the ADV Tent Space thread.
- http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=776925
- Eat better.
- It takes a lot of calories to ride and stay alert and fit.
- Canned goods at the supermarket and a small cook set can result in tasty and nutritious meals.
- Stay positive.
- Good things will find you if you are a happy person with a positive attitude.
- Poopy people in a poopy mood will not receive the generosity of the Universe.

If you get out to south east Idaho, specifically Idaho Falls stop by.
I've got Tent Space.

Good luck with your travels.
Q~
There is so much good universal info here I had to re-wind.

This is the same info I learned on a solo trip in Death Valley. Never realized how much energy you burn on a bike. Next trip we make, I plan to calorie count for better mental and physical strength. It makes a more enjoyable ride.

Goodluck

"Sometimes its just not about the goddamn money."

There is more wisdom in that statement than you can possibly realize at 25 years of age. Always keep that in mind and you will surely find what you're looking for. Good luck in your journey
