I am very excited to be planning my first ever road trip (as a graduation gift to myself). A friend and I are going to be going all around the US starting and ending in Oregon. So far, I have done basic research and have chosen a pretty generic route. We have spent time abroad in Europe together and we planned that trip but this is quite different. How do you gauge time? I was thinking about 2 weeks for the whole thing but then reading others post that makes me doubtful. The route I temporarily have is through 25 states. With some being across the whole state and others just a corner or so. We plan to either camp along the way or stay in hostels so cheap is good haha. Budgeting hasn't really come in to play yet since we have a little more than a year to plan and save.
The route is basically from Oregon down to Cali and then across the lower part of the US and then up the east coast. After that its back across the mid-west and up through Montana and Idaho back to Oregon.
Any input would be extremely helpful.
Thank you in advance,
