I did a search but I couldn't find anything helpful. I wanted to take a trip west from Illinois, someplace like Arizona, Utah... During the last year I've driven to Indianapolis, St. Louis, Chicago, Rockford,The Quad Cities, Milwaukee. All trips I made in one day. (I live in Central Illinois.) For the summer after I finish high school I wanted to go someplace that's not in the midwest.
One of my questions is how hard is it to find a motel that would rent to an 18 year old? If its impossible I'm willing to camp (however if this is the case I'd like to know as I've never camped before and would like to make a few 'practice' trips in advance). I would rather stay at a motel though. My dad was a big traveler when he was younger but he doesn't know anything about laws so he's not help.
Anyway, what would be your suggestions to someone who's 18 for a trip like this? I'd be going alone since putting up with people on trips longer that 3 hour is a pain, that and I enjoy driving alone. (my friends all became stoners anyway.)
If this is at all possible the budget would be $1500. This would be for Late May 2008, If it's possible, I need to start getting things together now. (like the money mainly)
I would really like to thank you for your time reading this and all feedback is welcome.
(if you have any info at all to share, please do.)
