I am a college student from Wisconsin. (Impulsive one at that) Me and a friend are planning on leaviing late december on a roadtrip to CA. We will be covering around 5000 miles in about 2 weeks or so. Here's the stupid part....We are planning on buying a van stripping out the seats and putting a bed in the back with sleeping bags and the whole nine yards. We don't want to pay more than 1000 for the van. WHAT DO I NEED TO CHECK or prepare mechanically before I hit the open road.
ps. sorry if this is the stupidest things anyone has ever heard..but we are both serious about the trip and we just need advice, besides saying DONT GO!
