Hey everyone, first off ide like to say that ive been dreaming of driving from my place (Philadelphia) to san francisco or somewhere on the west coast for a long time. and this morning when i stumbled upon this forum i couldnt be happier because until now i didnt think i had the resources to figure out how to make it all possible. im a 19yo male, graduated high school in 2006 and havent had much of a means to go to college so im just kinda floating around. working labor jobs and playing in a band most nights but i wanna do something big. i wanna drive to the west coast. first head south and visit my buddy in port st. lucie, Florida. then maybe hit New orleans and head west from there. is this too long of a trip for my first time? what should i plan for, and make sure i have for a trip like this.. how much does something like this cost?? its the only thing on my mind right now but at times it all seams too overwhelming to actually do it.. any help would be so greatly appreciated.
