bike route problem

the bicycling the coast book has a route that, naturally, is along the coast. im planning to go up the valley. i thought the book might help from seattle to vancouver but no luck, it goes through the san juans (Awesome!) and up and around the peninsula to vancouver - an extra 5 days of riding. gak.

i can do the STP ride in reverse to get to seattle, but its a question of where there are campgrounds. this might kill the whole idea :(, stay tuned.
