My friends and I are nearing the end of our junior year in highschool, and with college and actual REAL responsibilities approaching... we want to rough it on a road trip, but learn life lessons along the way...
Our Initial plan was the Route 66 way to LA (we live in Southwest Michigan)
that got trampled real quick--- then we planned another route thru canada and back down thru the east coast---
Now we have a final plan; and it will most likely stay this route :
We are thinking about Camping a few nights, but cheap motels will work also--were not real picky about lodging... and we have places to stay in Myrtle Beach and when we get to florida...
Since our parents have always taken care of costs for vacation, i was just wondering if any of you new what a realistic cost for 3-5 friends to accomplish this type of trip.. well probably be driving a small SUV, so gas might be expensive.. we were thinking 2-3 weeks but if we can get the funds... longer would be better than shorter....
To Elaborate--- weve decided on the Toll road 80 > NYC then 95 Thru Philly and DC and continuing on 95 to myrtle beach, and once again to fort lauderdale... waiting on tips and pointers
