Morgen Jürgen; we cycled Sedalia to St Charles in late September 2019 - the last time we were allowed out of the UK! Mobile phone signals were ok generally. We were shuttled out by Todd at Katy Shuttles (no idea if he is still in business) from Defiance just west of St Charles who also hired us bikes (not very good ones).Then we took a full six days to cycle back, stopping to smell the roses, talk to people, find our way around the wash-outs, get lost on some of the highway sections (we don't mind small bits on the road) and fix a few punctures.30 to 40 miles a day seemed enoughfor us, and it was hot, very hot. It all depends on whether you want a steady enjoyable saunter, or a wizz-bang 100 miles a day race. But as Mr Bump rightly points out, it is easy to overestimate the distance you can ride. Get lost, get a couple of punctures, and you'll end up riding in the dusk or the dark unless it's mid-summer. I can post more information about where we stayed - we go for small bed and breakfasts or cheap hotels.
