I've been lurking around this site for a little while now, picking up nuggets of information.
I do have one question (for now!). I'm planning hopefully a 6-week solo road trip from Los Angeles to NYC starting in early February next year (although my travel agent is trying to talk me into doing a tour - I'm a grumpy introvert who likes driving, so I suspect that wouldn't work out well!), heading south first... details to be worked out. (I'm from Australia.)
From what I can gather, the US seems to have a lot more campsites and a lot fewer hostels than other places I've travelled. I've never done much camping, so I was wondering if people could fill me in a little on what the experience is like. What sort of facilities would you expect to find at a campground? If I don't have a tent is it feasible to sleep in my car? Does 'campsite' imply that I'll have to have a larger-than-compact car in order to navigate the terrain? Will I freeze?
Thanks for the great stuff that's here on this forum, too.
