I'm in the midst of planning a road trip across Canada, leaving from Toronto and heading to Vancouver taking the Trans Canada Highway. From there I would like to take the Route 101 down the pacific coast to Santa Monica and picking up historic Route 66 all the way to Chicago.
I'm hoping this can be accomplished in three months. With some lingering at certain places, I would like to leave around June 1 and be back in Toronto by Aug 30.
I will be traveling with a friend, and getting around in a van, with the idea of camping (or sleeping in the van), staying in hostels or perhaps the side of the road some nights!
I'm looking to save about $3500 with my friend saving the same amount, we're hoping this will be enough for gas, food, camping fees, so on and so forth.
That main idea is to do this the cheapest way and enjoy being on the road, nothing fancy.
Feedback would be greatly appreciated as I have never really attempted anything like this before! Thank you
