Katy Trail from St Louis, down to Joplin, return to STL on ACA Route 66 route

I'm a single female, over 60, from Vancouver WA. Driving to St Louis to start the ride, then planning on camping and cooking mostly, but a hotel for 2 days in Joplin.  The route is approximately 700 miles, with a dip into Kansas (I'd like to visit the Garmin HQ). Averaging 40 to 50 miles a day so that there's time to look around.

I have been road riding for many years, and I did a 20 day tour in 2019 and have done some week-long trips since then.  I'm easy going and flexible and it would be fun to share the experience with a like minded traveler.

Starting from St Louis

Sorry for delay in responding. I guess I expected a "notice" that someone responded. Starting from St Charles, actually, on May 26

Touring

Hi Angie and Aaron! Wow! This looks like it would be an amazing small tour. I just wanted to say hello, and mention I am going to think about whether I could join this ride. Maybe I could ride the train up from Austin affordably. I also don't have a touring bike currently; had to leave mine in Europe, and then was never able to return, partly due to COVID. And all my tourning gear is still in Spain, though I had my friend sell my bike. So I'm a big question mark! but I also had messaged with Aaron while we were both in Europe a couple yrs ago...but we never met up! So HELLO Aaron! hoep you are well! Have a great weekend, the both of you!

On May 28 I expect to be between Marthasville and Pilot Grove.  I expect to be on the Rock Spur to get to Pleasant Hill and/or backtrack from Clinton. That's about as accurate as I can be at this time. :)
