Hey. Just came upon this site, really informative stuff on here. Hoping you can help me.
This is my dilema. I'm an Irish girl, travelling over to the states for a bit of an adventure, albeit a short one with a few of my friends!
Basically, our plan is to fly into New York, get the Amtrak down to Washington D.C. and rent a car from there. We are arriving in mid July. I plan on renting the car for the full month we are going to be in the States for and the cost is looking pretty reasonable, about $800 for the size of car we want. I have been using this site to plan routes and other things, and my God has it helped! Thank you. I just want to throw my plans out there for someone to tell me whether it is overly optimistic given my short stay.

Home on day 30. I'm sorry if my post is confusing and that I haven't entered the routes I'm planning on taking, but I will do. There will be two other drivers with me. We plan on sharing all the driving. Am I putting too much pressure on us for such a short trip? Thanks in advance!
