First of all, let me introduce myself.
Autumn, french, just turned 27 and I live in New York for almost 11 months now.
With my friend Felix, british, 25, we plan to do a roadtrip east coast to west coast from August 25th to September 20th.
Our flight back is at LAX on September 20th so we can't miss it.
As european, we have always dreamed to do a roadtrip across America. I know it sounds often stupid or crazy but this is an experience that will happen once in a lifetime and we are already aging ( haha).
Our roadtrip is as followed, the part Denver - LA ( the second part) is 99% done, we still need to work on the first one.

The return flight is booked, the cars are booked ( we booked a Mustang from LA, a dream will come true hehe).
So the project is serious,we are doing it.
In addition, I'd like to say, that I know this is crazy or pretentious or unrealistic, but again this is for the experience. We can come back one day to focus on certain parts.
I'll add we plan to take as much as we can secondary roads.
So, what do you think? Be honest and feel free.
A frenchie who wasn't born in the good country, God bless America.
