We are a couple of guys (probably around 7) who are planing to go on a roadtrip coast-to-coast for about one month next summer. We just started planing everything so nothing is really decided yet, so I would appreciate any inputyou guys may have. I have calculated with a budget around $3500 per person (incl. everything except the plane ticket) - is that realistic? What are the musts on the way? We want to see a little bit of everything - city-life, nature, adventures (rafting, paintball, etc. etc.). Not sure if we will go from east to west or the other way around - does it matter?
I have been trying to find a good place to rent a large van (as large as possibe as we want to sleep in it some times - maybe a 12-seater) but haven't been able to find anything - any good tips on this?
Again, any input greatly appreciated!
