me and my boyfriend (i'm 19, he'll be 22), are planning to do a 6 month road trip around America, hopefully seeing as much as is possible. We'll be starting in New York in early January and finishing up in LA in early July. As both of us or at least me appear to be too young to hire a car in the states we're planning to buy one and then sell it on when we're done. We have no proper route as of yet, we're planning to head south from new york, and then sort of zig zag north-south over to the west coast (our logic is it will take less time this way than constantly crossing east-west).
Any advice would be great, on routes in particular but also on things like buying a car and if its going to possible to insure it. We'll hopefully set off with a little under £10000 between us, which i think is about 16,500 dollars, but my boyfriend is a us citizen so we may be able to top that up through him getting a job if needs be. Is this trip even possible at all?
Thank you so much for any advice/tips,
