I have posted this thread in the 'ride section' and was advised to do regional. In any case, looking for ride route suggestions leaving from Austin, TX late April, heading to California with the goal of doing Pacific Coast Highway north to maybe the Redwoods and then head back. Time limit is about 12-14 days. Prefer to do camping as much as possible.
Also, this is my first big ride in some years. If there is anything that you think "you gotta have this on your bike" let me hear from ya. Mucho appreciate all your input.
thanks to the folks who gave me their suggestions
