The previous posts with advice are all spot on. Maybe I have a few more of value. First if you are riding alone, it is your trip. If you are tired. Take a break. If you are hot stop and find some shade. Don’t plan marathon days for this first long trip. You have to get in riding shape. I am 12 days deep in a ride that so far has covered 4800 miles. Today rode over 500. Tomorrow about the same. I do this a lot. Couldn’t do it when I started and didn’t want to. However, some days it makes sense to do it that way. Not every day. My advice with the teen make it fun. We rode to key west in March with our daughter. She is no teen but about 300 per day was max. Find fun things to do. If you are riding with others the plans will have to be discussed. Good luck. If hope you have a ball. Long distance touring is my passion. I love it.

but those who hope in the Lord
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31
