I have been on road trips before and created a post asking about specific equipment for this trip. It's going to be a doozy. 101-days. Costs are roughly:
I am looking at anywhere from $10,000-$18,000 total cost - depending on how cheap I want to be (which I am never a cheap traveller...it always leads to me not enjoying my time, sleeping in cars).This is a pretty good deal for the time spent and a hotel each night averaging $80 (which I have searched to be the average costs of hotels, some as much as 200-300).
I am overall looking to revisit many areas, and explore new ones. I will post an itinerary soon if anyone is interested. It is mainly well-known back country and a few cities. My questions is this. Does anybody know of any non-tourist historical spots, particularly spots with local lore/tales. I absolutely LOVE following local history, treasure tales, etc. I am just unaware of any spots out west other than the main ones, that could satisfy my need for history, without interference from loads of tourists all around me. Any suggestions of areas would be great, and possibly, a brief description. Thank you in advance.
