My girlfriend and I are Aussies on a working holiday in Vancouver, BC at the moment.
To finish off our Overseas adventure we are planning a road trip in our 1994 GMC Safari Minivan. We are planning (roughly) to go from Vancouver to Vegas via the Oregon coast then back up through Salt Lake City and Rapid City to Chicago. From there we want to go to Toronto then Boston, New York etc. then South to Memphis and New Orleans before heading back across to LA where we will be flying home to Australia.
We have a budget of roughly $9-10,000 and will be leaving at the end of July/start of August. We will be sleeping in either the van or camping in a tent for 80% of the time and cheap hotels/hostels where we can.
I am a little worried that this is a long way to travel in only 8 weeks! i think we have it at about 15,000kms. Is it possible to do it and still enjoy our time?
The minivan is quite comfortable and has A/C and Cruise control. I am also setting up a bed in the back with plenty of storage space inside and on the roof of the van.
We will have a small BBQ for cooking some hot meals so we should be getting most of our food from grocery stores and supermarkets.
Anyway, any advice would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks for your time.
