It has been brought to my attention that when I ask for help along the way, people to meet, and places to stay, it might be a good idea to let you all know where exactly it is I’ll be walking.
As per usual with me, nothing is set in stone. However, here are some maps with a general idea of where I’ll be heading.
Starting from where I am today:
Hah, pretty detailed, right?
I’m just about into Indiana, and here’s how I’m thinking of going.
Mostly I just need to hit Kokomo, IN, avoid Chicago, and then at some point start drifting up towards Rock Island/Davenport area where I’ll meet back up with the ADT.
The ADT maps for Iowa,
(Iowa is a bit iffy for following the entire trail, as it would cut down on time to skip the ups and downs and try and go straight across)
Once I get to Denver/Boulder I’m planning on reassessing the situation and going from there. Portions of the CO trail make me a tad nervous, so I might be changing it up there. We’ll see.
Hopefully that clears things up a tad and lets people know where I might be looking for a place to stay. If you are familiar with any of the areas I’m proposing to go through and have some tips or suggestions, please don’t be shy in sharing!
