Hey Mad, Thanks for sharing that info. Interesting that they didn't fuss about your 2.1" wide tires. Our Mountain Bikes are only 2.1" but I'm not comfortable just hoping I don't encounter Mr Bythebook the day we want to board. For these kinds of trips we're just more comfortable on our ECRs and there's no hiding those 3" tires. Anyhow, because of food uncertainties & the distance between some motels we've decided to do this as another bike packing trip rather than a credit card ride. So with camp gear, cook systems, & self sufficient food supply a BoB trailer will be following my bike. The AmTrak website does now say trailers can be shipped but in a box. Mine would need to be totally dismantled to fit their required box dimensions. I just don't feel like doing that on top of partial disassembly & boxing of two bikes. On top of all that some wording on the AmTrak website confused me on what to do with all of our other gear. Anyhow, we'll pedal back to start.
