And obviously I have some questions and this looks like the best forum I have come across yet. First things first, can I rely on google maps' biking directions? And I am open to any and all packing, planning and route directions. I am so excited, I have never been on a solo road trip and I juts got laid off and turned thirty within a week of being laid off, so what better time than now. If anyone wants to meet up and ride some miles with me I will not say no!! I am starting from North Ga if that helps! Thanks in advance for any advice you may think will help...looking forward to meeting some of y'all out on the road!!!!
