  1. Default Planning a road trip, no clue at all


    I'm from Venezuela and I just got excited about the idea of doing a road trip on May/June 09.

    My initial idea is to start in Los Angeles since I have a cousin who lives over there, and then I wanted to go to Seattle.

    After that it's pretty much up for grabs since I have these wild ideas of going from Seattle to the East Coast (Boston, New York) stopping in Chicago and Pittsburgh. Maybe it'd be smarter and maybe cheaper to fly from Seattle to Chicago and then take on the road again and go to the other places.

    Anyone has an idea of how long this trip would take?

    Default starting with the basics

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    There are millions of variables in any roadtrip. That's what makes each trip unique, and why so many love them.

    There really are no one size fits all answers to the questions you are asking. The amount of time this trip will take depends upon the amount of time you have available. You can travel from LA to Seattle in as little as 2 full days, and travel coast to coast in as little as 5-6 days. Now, if you take scenic routes and stop at things that will take more time, if you decide to fly over part of it, then that would reduce your time.

    We're glad to help you get on the road, but you'll need to get a few more of the basics down before our advice will be very meaningful. If you really have "no clue" then spend some time browsing the forum, and get a feel for what other people have done and see which of those ideas work within what you hope to achieve.
