While reading WorldRiders2's Odyssey, I got bit by the travel bug and decided that I, too, would like to get out there and see the USA and meet all the wonderful people that are out there and renew my faith in mankind. Although I'm not as adventurous as Pat & Cat and don't plan on riding my bike around the world as they did, I would like to take my bike and kayak and travel by car and check out bike paths and kayaking spots across the country. Maybe also find a great place to spend my retirement years.
So, I was just wondering if anybody else has done such a trip and if so, what tips or special places to bike/kayak they could suggest. (note: we aren't extreme mountain bikers or whitewater kayakers)
My husband and I won't be taking this trip for a few years yet, as we are still both working. Our plan is to do this as soon as we retire, but I thought I could at least start planning and have a dream and goal.
