I shall be leaving beggining of April on my road trip around north america. I am leaving from washington DC/New York and the plan is to do a massive circle around the continent: down florida, southern states, mexico, west coast, alaska, across canada, chicago, quebec, then back down to NY. Saying that, the plan has always been to have no plan, and go wherever I feel like! I have planned for about 6 months to do this.
Any tips, must sees, etc?
The plan is to buy a van for the trip but am still unsure wether I can, being british. From the research I've done, you have to be a citizen to buy a car, and for insurance, though not sure about this. If it is true, do you reckon I could get an american friend to do to all the paperwork and put myself on the insurance? The other option is to rent. I have been told I could get a van for around $200-250 a month, unlimited mileage. Having done a few google searches I can't see anything this cheap, more around the $600 at least. Can anyone point to any companies that may be this cheap?
Any help appreciated!
