I cried too...for a different reason - I have to cross those F$@%ing things!!
Living on the East coast I chose the West to East route (HWY 50 mid May start). 1) Found that winds generally do run W>E however as others said crap shoot. (I was actually blown to a stop from gusts riding in a storm) 2) I liked the idea of traveling home to familiar surroundings - great mental trick "I'm getting closer" everyday. A con is losing time crossing a time zone - we rolled into a small town looking for something to eat and the stores were closed because we crossed a time zone 10 miles back - lol.
