Hello fellow travel enthusiasts,
I am a teacher from Australia and am planning a holiday to the US in December/January (our summer break) 2011. I realise I am not going to be able to see everything I want so am tying to narrow down the long list of things I want to see.
The front runner is a campervan trip from East to West, LA to maybe New Orleans or somewhere like that, taking in everything in between. I am a little unsure of how the weather and roads will be at that time of the year. I am aware that it is winter so may be a little 'challenging'.
I have around 4 weeks in total and thought to do the road trip for maybe 2? (with a few days in LA before departing) I also want to get up to New York and have a look around there.
So my questions are these my friends, is it a daft idea to road trip at this time of the year, if not what should I see along the way? Is it too cold to campervan? Would I have to do hire car and hotels?
Thanks in advance for the help :)
