bike touring: overnight to evanston

I'm preparing for a 10-day self-supported bike tour at the end of a July and need to test my new gear. PLEASE NOTE: This is my first self-supported tour. While I'm a strong rider, I'm a novice with a fully loaded bike. So it's advisable to have a sense of humor and spirit of adventure if you join me. My plan is to do a loop from Kamas to Evanston to Coalville via Mirror Lake Hwy and I-80/ Echo Canyon. I'll spend the night in Evanston (exactly halfway) at the Phillips RV Campground. Round trip is 143 miles and 8000 ft. of elevation gain. There's a brief stretch on I-80 where we'll be on the shoulder, but otherwise we'll be on less traveled roads. Please contact me if you'd like to join me.
