I am an English Student studying in London. For a while now it has been an ambition to travel across America after Uni. Unfortunately for me, I read On The Road by Jack Kerouac, and have subsequently become obsessed with the idea! One chapter starts with Sal and Dean managing to get a car that a person needed driving to Chicago from San Fran for them, as they needed to get to Chicago quickly, and had to fly back. Is it still possible to do this? are there companies in major cities that do this?
Another question, is it still possible to jump on freight trains as a form of free transport?
Thanks, and many regards
