Thank you so much @REI-CarterC for giving this conversation momentum with these resources and names:) I'm excited to be joining this community because I've always loved spending time outside but my family wasn't the kind to go on adventures unless there were nice, indoor accommodations haha I would love to share more about my bike trip if anyone has questions. It was a really makeshift route and I kind of left the routing up to the two boys I went with because I'm so green to overnighting (and bike riding! haha) but we started in Seaside, OR and ended in Boston, MA. From there, one friend and I biked up to Montreal. That was the best part, though the mountain passes in Vermont were gnarly! And we got caught in a couple rainstorms haha it all makes for great memories though
