Well, I'm a pretty avid camper and I don't plan on going to any motels or hotels at all. Also, the website couchsurfing.com can really help out if you need a place to stay. That's my plan as far as sleeping goes.

I have ways to make money on the road (no, not prostitution!). I'm a guitarist and my boyfriend plays harmonica and several other instruments. We managed to make enough gas money about a month ago to get from Cherokee National Forest in SE Tennessee to our home in Akron, Oh. Money isn't something I'm too worried about, I'm starting to save now.

I would love to buy a real moped, only I want to take a train from Akron to Florida and they do not allow mopeds on Amtrak. I'm starting in January, so I want to be as far south as possible, ya know?

The most advice I need is on keeping the condition of the moped together enough to make it for thousands of miles. If you all believe one of those bike motors won't make it, then I will have to make some rearrangements as far as plans go. All I know is, I'm trying to get out of here as soon as possible and get back on the road! But, I do plan on peddling my bike as much as I can bear before kicking the motor on, in order to make the engine last as long as possible.

I appreciate all the comments, thanks a lot.
