Yah Greg's tour is really inspiring to me too. Especially since besides wanting to ride really far, I also want to visit Chiapas, Venezuela, and Colombia to see some aspects of the political scene there first hand.
and I tried to do a two day trip (100 miles per day) to Chicago once but we were foiled by the Worst Weather Ever (freezing rain in May and 60MPH crosswind gusts) and by the time we made it to Kankakee we slept the night (with no heat!) and called for our friends to pick us up the next day.
(and brother), and I tried to do a 4 day trip (20 miles per day) from northern Illinois up into Wisconsin and back but halfway through the second day
's front fork fell off while going down a hill.
So sadly, I've never really been on a real tour. I want to very badly. And I will.
and I at the very least have GOT to conquer that Chicago journey. It is a moral imperative.
