  1. Default 3 month road trip - Seattle to Boston

    Hi everyone,

    Firstly let me say how good this forum is, can't believe i've only just found it. Anyway, like the title says i have planned a 3month (just under actually) road trip across America. Let me just fill you in on the plan... (Sorry for the length)

    Days 1 - 3 - Seattle
    Days 4 - 5 - Missoula, Montana
    6 - 7 - Miles City
    8 - 9 - minneapolis
    10 - 11 - hot springs
    12 - 13 - Wichita
    14 - 15 - Dallas
    16 - 17 - Houston
    18 - 19 - San Antonio
    20 - Alberquerque
    21- 23 - Colorado Springs
    24 - 25 -Salt Lake City
    26 - 27 - Phoenix
    28 - San Diego
    29 - 32 - Los Angeles
    33 - 37 - Las Vegas
    38 - 41 - San Fran
    42 - 43 - Portland
    44 - Back to Seattle for flight to Boston
    45 - 47 - Boston
    48 - 49 - Niagara Falls
    50 - 54 - Chicago
    55 - Cincinnati
    56 - 57 - Nashville
    58 - 59 -memphis
    60 - 61 - new orleans
    62 - panama city
    63 - 65 - Orlando
    66 - 69 - Miami
    70 - Jacksonville
    71 - 72 charlotte
    73 - wilmington, NC
    74 - VirginiaBeach
    75 -78 - Washington DC
    79 - 80 - Philidelphia
    81-83 -Atlantic City
    84 - 88 - New York
    89 - Boston and fly home :(

    This is the route I plan to take(or as close to it as possible). I plan to rent a car from Seattle and return to Seattle, then do the same from Boston (Avoiding One way rental prices). Accommodation wise I am wanting to stop in motels/hotels 3/4 times a week spending the rest camping, buying camping equipment whilst over there. I will then pay for extra checked luggage for the flight from Boston to Seattle for any camping equipment I can take with me, the rest will be given to charity. I also plan to buy a food cooler, keeping food costs down... again only eating out 2/3 times a week.

    This is all hopefully taking place june/july 2011 (like I said...hopefully!!!) with myself and two bestfriends.. who fingers crossed will remain bestfriends once finished. We will all be 25 at the time of travelling all with full driving licenses. I am not booking accomodation before I go (apart from first 3 days in Seattle) but taking a laptop and doing it that way.

    Basically, I'm interestered in your thoughts and advice. Have I missed anything out? gone wrong anywhere? What places are a must to visit? and a total no go? Just basically anything you have to say.. please do! I already know the trip is going to be amazing, I just want to make sure to not miss anything out.

    Thank you in advance
    Em

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    With a trip this long planned, I have to ask - what is your experience thus far with long-distance driving trips? This is quite a bit to take on for a first trip. That's not to say that you shouldn't try, but it may become difficult to manage.

    I would recommend checking out some of the state parks in the areas you will be traveling for camping purposes. They generally offer reasonable value and some times are even better equipped than privately-owned campgrounds.

    I don't see anything as being a no-go as far as places to visit - you're bound to find something interesting no matter where you go.
