Me and 3 possibly 4 friends want to make a cross country trip next year. I was wondering if someone could help figure out costs and planning.
Here's what we have so far.
-We are all best friends for over 5 years now so we get along great.
-We are driving a 1966 mustang convertible
-We are all going to be 20 years old.
-We are going to be driving in shifts since all of us can drive.
-Money is a factor so we will be eating mostly bought food and cooking it ourselves on a grill, with take out and other cheap alternatives being our primary food, and sit-down places factoring in when needed.
-We will be camping a lot to save money and staying in CHEAP (under 50$) motels every once-in-awhile.
-We have UNLIMITED time since we will have all summer.
-We have a number of places that we want to see so we dont have a set plan. This is more about the trip then the destination.
-We are starting in Washington, D.C. and want to end at some beautiful southern beach in california.
-We have a TON of places we want to see and are going to criss-cross the country visiting some of the best national parks, deserts, canyons, forests, las vegas, white sands, ect...
-We want to drive on at least one of the descelet, flat, empty, stretches of desert highway you see in the movies. Know of any?
So thats about it. Ask any questions you want that will help you set a price/time frame/tips.
I appriciate any and all help!
