Hello Road Trippers!
I'm currently planning a month long road trip across the United States, from the Central Valley of California all the way to New York City. Some of my close friends and I have always been adventurous and willing to drive anywhere simply for the road trip experience. We've taken several short day trips throughout California and spontaneously drove 11 hours in the middle of the night to Utah to surprise a friend going to school there. We are all separated at the moment, going to college in different places in CA. This July we'll all be taking a break from school and our jobs and pursue our highly anticipated trip across the country.
We currently have plans to first travel along the top half of the country, making it to Mt. Rushmore, Chicago, New York City, and New Jersey. And then heading back down through Nashville, Mississippi, New Orleans, and finally camping inside the Grand Canyon in Arizona, and heading home. We're scheduling the trip over the entire month of July. We understand that with a trip of this length, we definitely won't be able to see everything everywhere we go. We're all in it for the experience.
We will be traveling in a Ford Expedition, with camping equipment and lots of food and water. For accommodations, we're planning to do a combination of camping and staying in cheap hotels/hostels. We plan to stay 2 nights in Chicago, 3 nights in New York City, and 2-3 nights in New Orleans. Also, we're interested in going white water rafting down Colorado River and going sky diving at some point along the trip.
Any comments, suggestions, tips, ideas? We would love some help/feedback. Wanna tell us we're CRAZY?! We want to hear what you have to say, so please leave a comment!
Thanks everyone for taking the time to read my post, I look forward to hearing what any and everyone has to say.
