I am currently trying to plan the trip of a lifetime, and with the first leg of it, i am more than hoping to get some good advice from anyone who is offering. I will be flying into Miami starting a round the world trip (flying out of London) and it is our plan, to drive from miami to LA, but not the most direct route persay. I have found a website online which is called autodriveaway. I donīt know if any of you are familiar with it, but i would be driving other peoples cars for them, from point A to B. We are hoping to make our way accross the country like this,only having to pay for gas along the way.
Of the two of us going, i am the only one with a liscence, have had it for 7 years almost, and i enjoy driving, so i don't see the long hauls being a problem. What i was wondering, is how much time i should give us for this journey. We want to go from miami to NY, visit DC (i have family) swing by minneapolis and then to MT rushmore, and i know it is zigzagging, but head down to the 4 corners area, monument valley, grandcanyon, etc. Stopping at some point briefly in Vegas, going up to SF, and ending it in LA.
We dont forsee staying more than 2 nights in any given choice of stop, and in order to book my plane tickets, i need to have a rough idea of how long this type of journey can take me. Also, what areas would i have trouble due to weather in mid march, and which ones would be an easy drive.
It is definetely going to be a feat of a trip, after LA we are flying to fiji, NZ, Australia, and thailand before going home. Trip all in all will take about 6-8 months.
Clearly, any input is more than appreciated, i knwo it is a ways off, but i am in the planning stages at the moment, and wouldnt mind some guidance.
Thank you ahead of time!
