We have recently begun organizing our trips on a base camp principal... we take a good strong starting day, maybe 3-600K to a destination, or a central location, and then set up a temporary base camp from which we explore the surroundings in more detail, then move on. Initailly we had problems seeing everything and making enough distance per day to make the next waypoint, so this seemed like a more relaxed approach. You can still put major miles on, but youre are not rushing. This has now worked succesfully in Germany, Chili, NorthEast and SouthWest USA. We average about 1000-1500k in 7 days, by staying 2 nights at each waypoint. (maybe Three if it is a really great spot. One day for travel, one day for looking around at where we are. I dont know if this is helpful, but it's approach helped guide us to form some kind of itinerary. Six Months sounds Absolutely Fabulous. Can I come?
