First off, I wanted to say thanks to everyone who has been contributing to this great site. It's been really helpful!!
I'm looking at starting my road trip in early March. (There is two of us in our early 20's) Flying into San Francisco from New Zealand. Looking to spend a few days there then drive to Los Vegas, spend a few days there, then to LA and then drive the pacific coast back to SF. After all that will fly to New York.
I am working on my budget at the moment and was wanting to check to see if it's realistic.
I have budgeted
$60 per night for accommodation - We are thinking of staying at Motel 6's or similar.
$50 per day for food to cover us both
$50 per day for incidental costs / spending money for us both
I have no idea how much this trip will cost in gas. Can anyone think of a ball park amount?
I will post more info and questions here soon, but these are the most important right now.
Thanks heaps in advance!
