    Try reading Lion Kings trail journals, he has recently completed same. Also, check out his You Tube videos. I'm sure he has mentioned several places in both venues where he has used stealth methods along with various organized campgrounds. That might at least give you some ideas.
    Good luck on your journey. Happy trails.

    Ken and Marcia did the ADT a few years ago and had a good journal. There have been others as well since then also with journals on trailjournals.com

    I know Iowa is going to be a hard place to camp unless a farmer lets you stay on his farm. For Waterloo, there are some really cheap hotels if you ended up affording one.

    You don't realize that there are places that require permission to stay on. Stealth camping may not be the solution.
