Self-Supported start Jan 11th Oasis northbound

I am choosing west around Lake Okeechobee - roadwalking around the current closed section due to construction - and east around Orlando. Considering the previously mentioned detour and other current trail reroutes, my route should only add 4 miles to the traditional 1,108 mile track. 

Thanks and oo-de-lally
