Me and my girlfriend just wrapped up our PhD’s at Michigan State University. And we would like to go on a road trip through USA. We have about three weeks. We have a decent amount of money – it should not be a problem unless it becomes outrageous. We are looking at the time period in June. We initially planned to do New York to Los Angeles. These days we are thinking of doing – Boston-New York-Niagara Falls-Lansing-New Orleans-Houston-Santa Fe-Grand Canyon-Vegas-Death Valley-california west coast and end at Los Angeles. We would like to rent a convertible that is decently priced.
We have just started planning on this, and we are already running into problems regarding that convertible. People don’t seem to want to rent convertibles for one way.
So the question(s) is:
(1) Does the above plan in the above time frame sound ridiculous? Is it possible?
(2) Any suggestions/advice?
(3) Any suggestions for the convertible?
Any advice/suggestions/criticisms/opinions are welcome, please help – we really want to do this but we really don’t know where to start from.
Thanks a lot!
