I'm planning out a Cross Country trip across America, and was wondering about financing and what-not. I have attached a basic route which I want to follow and Google Maps quoted it to be around 8723 Miles.
I would be starting off in Boston, and then from there;
And then hopefully, back into Boston.
I estimated this could be done in about 39 days?
I have been quoted that car hire for a Ford Explorer or similar for 39 days inc. Insurance and GPS will be £2114.29 ($2,965.55)
And Fuel costs over 8723 miles and average fuel price is $2.5 per Gallon and MPG is roughly 18 MPG, it all comes to $1211.53.
I now need to set myself a target of other things I need to take into consideration, obviously food and hotel/motels are important, but I have no clue as to how much these are, and what I need to budget for them.
Any help would be much appreciated,
