Hi, I'm planning a trip from Chicago to New York. I've never done a bicycle tour before, so I'm sort of just jumping in to it. Has anyone ever done this route before and can give me suggestions? I would really appreciate it. I want to travel as light as possible and preferably make it an economical trip. I have a tent and sleeping bag. If you have experienced sleeping in a tent in random places, how has your experience been? Is it safe? Any help would is appreciated. Thank you, Warm Showers community.
