I'm really glad I found this website because I would like to venture across the US but have no idea how to go about it.
My plan is to start in Boston MA and move west, ending up in CA. I may also start in TX and move northwest from there. Not sure yet. But I have family in TX and since I have seen a good bit of the east coast it would be cheaper and faster for me to start there since my main priority is to see the west.
I want to give myself two weeks. I think that's enough time?
I am also planning on doing this alone. I'm in my mid-twenties, female...is it not safe?
I do not have a car. My plan was to rent one, or take buses. I want to stay as cheaply as possible so parks and campsites will do.
I want to do this in summer 2010 so I have a long time to plan (and save!).
As you can see, I'm pretty clueless. Any suggestions or recommended readings or any advice at all would be greatly appreciated!
