I did this yesterday, Friday, May 22. No cell service. Nine twenty ounce bottles of hydration and a lot of food and repair stuff. Forty Fahrenheit when I started and 80 Fahrenheit by two pm. No one else that rides as slow as I do has enough miles to do this yet so I did it solo. Saw deer, sand hill cranes, upland sandpipers and one great egret. I wore layers of thrift store flannel shirts. I hid them in the woods as the temperature rose. I have to go back and get them.
