riding thru your area and trip planning advice requested

Hello,


I need 18 more states to finish out the 48 and it seems that a bunch of these are in your area.

I need to start in Orlando and need:
Arkansas
Oklahoma
Kansas
Nebraska
Wyoming
Colorado
Utah
Oregon
Washington
Idaho
Montana
North Dakota
South Dakota
Minnesota
Wisconsin
Iowa
Missouri
Illinois

I was looking at this as a route which is around 6500 miles and would mean an average of 650+ miles per day. The plan would be to get out of the South to somewhere like Cheyene in two days (approx 2K miles) leaving 8 days for the remaining 4500 miles for an average of 550 miles per day.

I am considering much sight seeing as I only have 10 days to complete this trip and I want to get the remaining 48 states done on this one trip.

AS a point of reference I have a have been coast to coast and FL to Canada and back for a completed cc50 and a few saddle sore and BBG IBA rides.

Planned departure date is July 5th 2013.

I would prefer to stay on the highways to make the best use of time.

Anyone with local knowledge or advice would be appreciated.

Paul
