    Default Teens Going Cross-Country

    Hey guys,

    My name is Cheryl and I'm trying to plan a roadtrip for summer 08 with some friends. As of now, I'm not sure how many friends. But at least 2, maybe 4. We're leaving from Atlanta and going to California. Some of us will not be 18 when we take this trip, but I don't think that will be a problem.

    What we want to do is just take in some cool sights along the way, and then spend some time exploring the coast of California.

    My plan is to do this trip in 10 days max. Do we need more time??

    And any suggestions, because this is our first roadtrip?

    Thanks guys.

    Default Just for you

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    There is an article in the planning section that is right up your alley. Its called Teenage Roadtrip? and it goes through some of the responsibilities of a roadtrip and how to prepare for a major trip.

    Having travelers under 18 also isn't totally problem free. Medical issues are just one potential problem when traveling with minors.

    As far as your specific plans, I'm afraid that 10 days just isn't enough time to travel from Atlanta to California and back and leave any time left for exploration. You basically need that amount of time just to drive to the Pacific Ocean and turn around and head back home.

    Default Ten Days Not Enough

    I always glad to see young people with an interest in traveling the open road, but 10 days would definitely not be enough time to make a trip like you plan.

    Part of the fun of a trip is getting there. Perhaps you should shorten it a bit.
