Does anyone have any advice for a 24 yr old female traveling alone across country for a month? Safety advice/warnings, camping areas, must see attractions? I will be traveling from San Francisco, CA. I do not want to stay in hotels at all. I am going to be camping or sleeping in my car (1969 VW bug) and getting food from grocery stores, I also have a small grill. I will be visiting Slab City but so far that's the only place I know of that has the kind of culture and people I'd like to meet along the way. I am not into the "touristy" places so much. More into the scenery where I can get some great pictures and memories, friendly people/fellow travelers, hippie areas where I can buy some authentic road souvenirs, National parks, safe campgrounds, etc. I'm very used to camping, etc and the back seat of my bug folds down into enough space for me to sleep comfortably with my stuff in the front seats. How much money should I plan on spending? Are there any places I should avoid? Any advice for me? I'd appreciate all the help I can get. Thanks!
