I liked the first one. imma going to go head and estimate the cost of this trip $800-$950. would say about seven days (medium pace)to complete?
There is no way that would be a "medium pace" in 7 days. That is averaging just under 900 miles a day. That would be freaking miserable. I've done 800 miles in a day and I was exhausted, and to do that 6 more days after that wouldn't be any fun at all.

I understand that people do 1000 miles in 24 hours for the Iron Butt, but they don't do it day after day after day typically.

at those paces you are doing all highway, you could stay in your own state for that.
Stealth camping is the best. I did a 53 day trip.

umm.. i dont know about the stealth camping. Have ya ever seen Easy Rider? Also at night in the desert is gets REALLY cold. I can see if we hit a big city stay in a hotel and for smaller towns a camp site. maybe one night of stealth,but we will be in cowboy country and im not trying to have any problems, ya dig?

just for fun, on that map you provide of the loop, it said it would take 80 days to walk it.

Agreed. I don't mind camping, but not every night.

Picked up a M&P 40 fullsize at the gunshow today to go with my M&P 40 compact. I have been a pretty diahard XD fan, but I love these M&P's. This one has a laserlight on it, and is now my nightstand gun. I have a gunvault Multi dx comming for next to my bed also. Nice gun undertow, let us know how she does!
