  1. Default Help me plan our road trip!

    Hi Guys,

    Had a little look round the forum to answer quite a few questions i've had, but i thought it would be best to tell you what my plans are and to see if you can help :)

    First of all, i'll be coming from the UK. I hope to bring a van load of other people.

    My initial plan is to go from Chicago -> Cali. Please find a map i have constructed of the 'sights to see' so far.

    Here's the dreaded bit, questions!

    - Whats to do between Chicago and Las Vegas (i don't mind bending the route a little)?
    - How many days would you say the trip would take?
    - What is the average $ for a motel?
    - If we were to camp, is there a website for locations and rules regarding where you can camp?

    Just working out fuel costs for an estimated 1800 mile trip.

    I have guessed an average of 25mpg for a rental car at a cost of $3 per gallon. This comes out as just over $200 in fuel.

    This is a direct route, so am aware that driving off the beaten path will increase the cost... but would $400 sound about right?
