if your ok with riding with mp3 player, you will definatly want it. i dont think a camelbak is needed. your going to have to stop often enough for gas anyways, might as well get a drink then, rather than having excess pounds of liquid on you that just wears you down faster.

also keep in mind that while you can probably make the trip there and even enjoy it, the trip home you might not be looking forward too as much.

also. look forward to having squared off tires when you get home.
good info here. I actually did use the camel pack though........... MP3 is a MUST........... and get ready to sweat your off! I remember that being a biotch more than anyhting. by the time I got one way or the other i was soaking. Mind you im only 170olbs and dont norm sweat at all.

Gatorade Gatorade Gatorade........... and if you can tinted visor or sunglasses. My 14 made it a lil more comfy but with enough stops youll be fine. Take your time and use your head as well.................its a long trip and youll be by yourself. Becareful man............. oh and bring tools and a tire plug kit

I'll be making this trip next Thursday on my way to Eureka Springs. I stop in Centerville for a quick splash and go (4 gas stops to Eureka). I leave Friendswood @ 2:30am so I can be through Dallas before their rush hour starts and make Eureka by 2pm. So to me, the ride to Dallas ain't jack.

Bring some tunes, you'll be fine.
