In the summer after our senior year of high school (summer 2014) five of my friends and I would like to take a road trip across all of America. Our original plan was to rent an RV and take the whole summer (approx 2 months) to drive from the New York City area to California and back again. We would camp for most of it. The kinds of places we'd want to see are national parks, small town novelties, odd museums, abandoned/haunted places, little-known historical sites or manor houses, stuff like that. More quirky and off-the-beaten-path than touristy.
However, after reading some of the other threads on this website, I see that it would be really hard to get an RV, so how else should we do it? I don't know what kind of cars we'll have access to then and I'm not 100% sure how the Junior License/ Full License system works in New York so any info on that would be wonderful. Four of us will be 18 by that summer.
We don't have much more than that so any advice at all would be helpful!
Thanks so much!!!!
