Hello Everyone! Please share your road trip wisdom with me!
So for this April I am planning a road trip with 5 good friends including myself. I have never done this before and need some beginners assistance! First off, the main objective is to make it to Indio California's Coachella Music Festival. Along the way I would love to possibly make a stop in Denver Colorado and Las Vegas Nevada. Since we are all currently students I think It may be a bit unrealistic to hit up both of those spots, so lets just leave Vegas out of the picture for now! This is what I have brain stormed thus far....
we will need to aquire...
A car - as of now, I believe renting a car would be best, does anyone know of any sites that may help me calculate gas consumption according to the cars engine size or something along those lines?
Tent - Taken care of
Food - We will be bringing a cooler for snacks and generally inexpensive food (Apples, fruit, granola bars, trail mix, water, pb&j, etc) apart from those snacks, would it be smart to save about $10 a day for food?
Festival fee's - Ticket prices taken care of and the $85 fee to camp on festival grounds.
Basically what I am trying to do is plan the most inexpensive road trip to Coachella, I am aware that a great deal of money will still be required but Im fine with eating Ramen noodles every night and stopping at a couple mom and pop dinners along the way. Can anyone give me some advice on what to expect, further planning tips, price range, amount of days it would take (I only plan on stopping in Denver for a day at the very most. Might even have to scratch Denver due to school) Any help is greatly appreciated, this is my first time planning something this extensive and its a bit hard finding a right place to start to be honest! So please help make this road trip a great memory for me and my friends! Thanks!
