i'm planning a first trip to the US from England. I want to do a classic Chicago-St Louis-SW Deserts-Las Vegas-Los Angeles-Highway1-San Francisco route. but while i've wanted to do this for a while, the practicalities are far from settled. i'm travelling with 3 others.
1) What's the best way to get hold of a real cheapo car that can be sold on at the other end? Any companies known?
2) How long should we leave for a proper in depth trip?
3) Is there anywhere on that itinerary we're really missing (obv exluding East Coast)?
4) Motels? Or camping?
5) The route roughly follows that of R66. But i know that lots of that has been replaced by I40 (except bits of Arizona and Oklahoma). If we want to do the trad smaller two lane highway kind of trip, does anyone have any bright ideas for our particular itinerary?
And that's about it for the time being. Any help greatly appreciated. x
