The Route.

We plan to follow a combination of the Mississippi River Trail and the Adventure Cycling Association Great Rivers Route.

We will start from Hustler WI, and hopefully end south of New Orleans. Venice Louisiana seems to be a good goal.

We will leave Hustler and cut West to the LaCrosse area, then go south. We will combine camping and hotels, however hotels will likely be more common. In future trips I hope to camp more, as I enjoy it more.

My best estimate is that a successful trip will be about 1800 miles, however our destination is not set in stone. If the unpredictables do not cooperate, we could entirely switch directions and thoroughly enjoy ourselves somewhere doesn't matter where we go....

If we wanted to get there quickly, we wouldn't be cycling.
