I'm a new member to the forum but I have been reading old post about trips and such. So I'm hoping maybe y'all can give me some tips or advice as to the trip I'm planning.
I know it might be a bit early to already start asking for help but I just want to plan ahead as much as possible. This trip first started as a while idea as "just getting on the road and drive". Even though I love the idea, it seems a bit unrealistic and irresponsible.
There is going to be four of us going in this trip, on my Grand Cherokee 2001, that I'm rebuilding at the moment. I'm trying to make this jeep as comfortable (suit our needs) as possible for us four since we will be out for quite a while. We all want to have about $2,500 for the trip, while I personally want to take $3,000. We pretty much already have the layout as to what cities.
Phoenix, (room for free)
Fontana, Ca (room for free)
Las Vegas (room for free)
Salt Lake City
Grand Teton National Park
Devil's Tower - Mt.Rushmore
Arthur Iowa (room for free)
Milwaukee (possible room for free)
Chicago (room for free)
Niagara Falls (Canada Side if possible)
Maine (room for free)
Either Philadelphia or New York
Virginia Beach (possible room for free)
Austin (room for free)
San Antonio (room for free)
We will ending our trip in Fabens, Texas which is 30 miles away from where I live, but most of my friends live out there and we will be having a welcome home party! :D
Now with most of these cities we are planning to stay up to three nights. So as you can see we do have friends and family in a lot of cities which will cut our lodging cost.
So what do yall think? Does this sound like a possible trip? Is our money budget good enough, even for some drinking, maybe a baseball game? Any attractions yall recommend us? Any meals idea since we will be camping in some cities where we dont got friends or family members? Anything else that I might of missed.
Thanks for taking your time to help me out.

P.S I have gone on camping trips with 2 out of the other 3 before., also our ages by then will be 23,24,26 and 28, with me being the youngest. But I have known these guys for about 9-11 years. One of em I met when I was 11, and we used to be roommates in phoenix as well.
