Hey everybody, my name is Connor. This is my first post and I need some ideas for a trip I'm planning with a couple of friends. Time isn't really a limit on this trip. As long as we are enjoying the scenery and the people we meet, we plan to stay on the road.
We already have a basic plan in mind. Starting in Austin, heading west, hitting Phoenix, San Diego, up to Los Angeles, taking the famous Highway 1 (only great scenic road I know of), then San Francisco, Portland, Seattle. The route back is less structured, maybe Yellowstone then Denver, then through my beautiful hometown of Lubbock (sarcasm) on the way back to Austin.
We plan on balancing our time in the cities and the empty spaces in between. We decided to stay at the hostels for the nights in the cities but also want to do some camping, which leads to the purpose of the post...considering this route of cities, where are some good camping areas? mountain ranges? national parks?
I'd greatly appreciate any ideas about how to spend our time in between the cities.
