I could really use some advice for a potential road trip. Bascially, I work in a University in the UK and have a bunch of holiday that expires at the end of august this year, but I can't really take any til the last two weeks. My colleague is in the same boat, so he suggested an American(and possibly Canadian) road trip. We are both about 30 and also geeks :)
So, the dates we have are something like 22nd August to 2nd September (or a couple of days either way), we have roughly $2800 (maximum) to spend on car rental, petrol, accomodation, food, etc... (not including flights)
We want to avoid the west coast because a) I've already been to LA a few times and b) One of our other friends has a plan about driving down the west coast, but he can't come on this trip. And obviously, we don't want to hijack his dream :)
We do like the idea of visiting both the US and Canada, provisional plans maybe something involving the New York and Montreal areas? Honestly, we don't know. there are so many possibilities!
So, given the budget and timescale, any advice?
Thanks in advance.
