I've been in new york city for about 3 weeks (take out 3 days in canada Toronto / Niagra falls), and I came here in matter of a road trip planned from the (east coast) to the (west coast).
The situation i'm in is after working at a camp upstate new york for the summer and failing to find a person for the same trip.
I'm searching for a travel companion or even 2, to join me on the whole american road trip, coast to coast, buy a used car and resell it afterwards, travelling within the big states of the us,
for around 2.5 - 5 months...
But, after searching for a while I've begun breaking down and thinking about the option of just buying a big backpack, taking sufficient clothing, and hitting the roads by bus, train, ridesharing, commencing couchsurfing and whatever comes to mind... starting from new york and west.
I've been in actual new york for a few weeks, and i've gotten a bit bored, besides shopping and a nice night life, nothing much to see here, maybe since i've been for 12 days 4 years ago?
I'm dying to check out all the national parks, some amazing art exhibits and galleries (not to talk about museums) and enjoy america...
the down side of the backpacking alone, is you don't get to stop at diners on the road, and enjoy little things such as "the biggest ball of yarn" site in the countryside, which i would "love" to see... and see what's out there?!
I've got a new sony a200 DSLR with some awesome equipment, and i'd love to get the photographs of my life, which i promised myself, I WILL...
and meeting new people is what it's all about , on the way... i'm that sort of person that hits up a conversation with the john doe you'll see sitting alone next to the coffee machine or the water cooler, about today's dilbert comic in the paper smile
So i'd like to get some feedback from people, what you suggest and think,
I'm a 23 y/o , totally independent, and have been in some near-death new yorker experiences at night on the streets, how bad could it be?! big_smile
and if anyone's interested in cracking up the continent in half together, Hit me up, i'm extremely flexible, have no specific dates right now, just make sure you get yourself over smile
gonna be in Miami, FL from the 12th of september (tomorrow) to the 16th (tuesday)
