Hi everyone, Im new and have only just started planning a 3month (87days) road trip with my boyfriend! We've decided that we need to do this now before we get married and settle down so nows the time.
Basically Im not to sure where to start I dont know anyone thats been on a road trip and going from such a small country where i can drive from north to south in about 8 hours to one that takes a week to drive across is quite daunting really!!!
We've decided to go right round the country starting in LA going south toward texas, louisiana, mississipi, tennesse, virginia, pennsylvania, new york, ohio, indiana, illinois, iowa, s.dakota, n.dakota, montana, washington, oregon, nevada and then back to california.
Now that route definatly is not concrete im looking for someone to tell me wether that route sucks or not! I dont mind changing it. We want to see the sights, landmarks, have some fun, experience general America. like i said we are still in the early stages so I havent done research on each state yet and some states we would probably just pass through to get to another state.
Now for accomadation we have decided to split between camping, motels and hostels were we can.
I am also looking for advice on renting as we are both under 25 we have to pay a lot extra for insurance does anybody have any advice and would they recommend just buying a cheap car?
If anyone can offer some advice it would be great because Im such an amateur!!!
Thank you :)
