Hello to all of you wonderful people. I've been road-trippin' for years, but have only just found this website. Where have I been?!
After I graduate from college in a month or so I'm going to put on my driving gloves, hit the road, and head out to explore the great American West (I'm currently in Burlington, VT). I have a whole ton of ants in my pants (aka ramblin' feet) and can't wait to hit the road! My funds are looking pretty good, but I’d like the trip to last as long as possible--maybe even all summer.
There have been some posts about making money while on the road, but I wanted to see if anyone has additional information, personal stories, or suggestions about how to make some quick cash to keep a road trip going. I'm not sure what sort of opportunities exist, if any, but I would be willing to work somewhere for either a day, or a month, as long as I could continue onward with a little extra green.
I’d like to camp as much as possible, and stay with friend when I can, but I would also like to do some more serious backpacking and hiking, hopefully a few overnight trips. Any thoughts or suggestions? Problems that may come up? I’ve done a lot camping and hiking, but don’t have any experience doing it solo--something I find exciting, fascinating, and terrifying. Any advice would be a great help. Thanks!
