So me and my friend are planning a month long trip from L.A. to Montreal this summer, via Vegas, Roswell, Austin, Memphis, Chicago and New York. Our route so far is as follows:
L.A-Vegas-Flagstaff-Gallups-Santa Fe-Roswell-Fort Stockton-Austin (we're still planning out the details of rest).
We're looking to keep on a budget by camping, staying in hostels and motels, and couch surfing along the way (we have friends dotted around the country and are using couchsurf.com), filling up a cooler for day to day food, and our entertainment will hopefully come from meeting a bunch of kick ass people rather than paying money for shows or attractions.
I'm pretty clueless when it comes to gas prices, but our trip is roughly 4000 miles, so I figure we need to set aside around $1000 for gas? Any advice about this would be much appreciated!
I'm pretty sure that this trip is achievable, but any tips/comments would be great!
