So first off I must say i'm completely enamored with this site. Kudos to this community its awesome! I've spent the last few nights exploring, and todays the day I post what brought me here.
I'm a 20 year old Film Major Creative Writing Minor (aka hopeful screenwriter) at the University of Texas in Austin. I've only gone on one signifigant roadtrip (more than a couple days), and at the time i was too young and naive to really soak it up (it was a 4 week trip from Austin up the east coast to boston philly, NYC, Niagra, then back down through the midwest, St. Louis etc). Anyways I love Austin its a really wonderful place to live, but i've never really been anywhere else, haven't experienced much and I've just really begun to realize that I want to. Plus i think it would a super opportunity to film and edit and write which i never seem to have time to do here...
Here's the trip i have in mind really roughly pounded out in brainstorm
First off this isnt going to be anytime soon like over a year from now. Right now we're talking July 20, 2010.
I have a 05 Camry, and a lady friend (plutonic) who wants to go, and shes great so I'm happy to have the company. She's said that she would have no problem sleeping in the car and i have no qualms. Combined we have a bunch of friends along the way to get at least a few nights of decent lodging.
I was wondering what yall think I am looking price wise, and time wise? When we were talking we came up with 30 days and $2000 - $3000 which we're comfortable taking off and putting up. What are some things along the way yall would suggest making it a point to check out? I'd really appreciate any input yall have even if its just "Silly kid you're biting off more than you can chew"
Thanks for reading and i look forward to yalls responses :)
