I'm looking for ideas for a winter trip or to find a planned trip I can latch onto this late 2010/early 2011. I work in the bike industry so I can take 4-6 weeks off in the winter.
I'd prefer someplace not frigid cold, travelling mostly self-supported and with the goal of covering some ground each day. Exact location or route isn't all that important to me as I don't travel with guidebooks.
I can be hard-core when needed, push some serious miles, camp wild, live off of dry tree bark, etc. But I can also dial it back to enjoy the scenery and company. It all depends on the circumstances.
Open to suggestions.
