I've got a United States Coast-To-Coast trip beginning this august, I'm going to be a general counselor at a youth camp upstate new york until mid-august and afterwards planning on continuing onward till i reach the west coast, whilst stopping in MN (where i grew up for a few years) and do loads of crazy and fun things all around the states...
first of all if anyone is thinking of the same, drop me a line, maybe we'd hook up and continue together, but besides i have a few questions :
1.Any special card i could get or register for, for all sorts of discounts all around the country, national parks, theme parks, and all the rest? real important! if anyone knows anything... basically i'm going to have a student card that i'm getting in my country, but besides that...
2.What's the best way for travelling across the states, buses or rental cars, or buying a car with a few people?
3.What's the most recognized credit card for the states? I've got an International Visa card currently, and i've gotten many many recommendations for getting an American Express card, for my trip. what do you suggest?
4. Does anyone have any advice for Route 66 ? i'm not sure if i should go for it...
5.Camping and traveling equipment, Worth buying at the states, and not for loads of money in Israel, right?
6.Any special suggestions for the trip? appreciate it loads!
thanks allot for the help, appreciate it allot.
