Help wanted with Arizona Trail Nobo - Feb/March 2019

Hello generous Warmshower Hosts

My name is Angela, I'm 57 years old, currently living in my homeland, the UK.  I'm thinking of travelling to the USA in February, then taking two months to ride the AZT. 

I'm a little scared and not sure how to fill in the gaps in planning and am looking for some host help and/or advice, especially at the Tucson end.  I'm thinking an airport collection, help with pumping my tyres up!, a bed for a couple of nights, a ride to the trail head and someone to ship my bike bag to my end point. Obviously I'd pay any expenses for each help action.  

Any help or advice would be much appreciated

Cheers

Angela

Welcome to the USA

Hey Angela:  Your trip sounds great.  I hope you have the time of your life here.  I have a couple thoughts for you.  This is the way I have operated on my last 7 tours and it has worked well.

1.  Contact multiple hosts in the area of interest now.  Don't wait.  People enjoy getting lead time.

2.  Help with shipping and airport assistance can also be handled by hosts.  Create a form letter and send to all.  Make adjustments where needed.  That way you don't leave out pertinent information.

3.  Pedal safe and well.

Good luck.
