My husband and I are considering using 3 weeks this summer to do a cross country road trip. One of my good friends is out in California that we can stay with when we arrive. Is 3 weeks a realistic timeline? We are hoping to stop at some of the sights along the way. We've both been wanting to do something like this and figure now is the time - young, newlyweds, no kids, and still renting an apartment so no major bills to worry about (though we are saving for a house). Anyway, this will be sort of a first year anniversary trip for us as well (No better way to test your marriage that spending endless hours in a car together haha!).
Any suggestions for a time frame? Is Camping a good idea or will late June be too warm? I have never been camping but am not opposed to it - as long as it isn't completely buggy. I do have fairly bad allergies so camping worries me this time of year but not sure what it is like further out west. My husband has been camping and is great at all that stuff - he would be able to handle the tent, fire, cooking, etc.
Also, we are on a bit of a budget. Nothing specific, but we are trying to be cost conscious and not spend a fortune.
Thanks in advance for any input!
