We're two Danish guys (20 and 21 years old), and we are trying to plan a roadtrip in the great U.S.! Hopefully, by September we will have scraped enough money together to make it. We can propably get around 3500 each (where part of it will have to be spent on a car, gas and insurance). We are planning on driving around the conutry for three months. There are a few things we would like to ask you experienced people:
- We are planning on buying a used car, $1000-2000 max. So here's the question: Is it even possible to get a decent car at that price, and then sell it, possibly with a few 100 dollar's loss? And what about insurance? Is it possible to insure a car for three months or how does it work? And the price?
- Sleeping: We realize that staying in a motel or hotel every night is going to be way too expensive, so what are the alternatives? We are not afraid of sleeping in a tent or in the car something like that...
We just wanna have a great time, see the USA like we have been wanting to for years, drive around without a real porpuse other than seeing citys like L.A. and N.Y. and such...
Is this possible or do we have to keep dreaming? (or postpone :-)
