I’m in. I’ll register for the Grand Tour today, and get the book. I’m totally fine with ~300mile days; not sure if I want to do ~600 mile days. And taking that much time in a row off is going to be an issue for me; being self-employed sucks.
What software are you using to plan the route?
I think some three day weekend type rides would be awesome; blow out of town early on a Friday, get to ‘H’, spend the night, come back up and do ‘I’, ‘J’, and the finish point on Sat., spend the night and then head back home on Sun.
Couple weeks later, go out and do S-O, out and back?
