Hello Road trip America!
Two friends and I are planning a road trip from Washington, DC to San Francisco with a number of stops along the way. Here is the current route we are planning on following (this is preliminary, so is open to change if recommended): http://bit.ly/129eCLs
We are from Canada and planning to fly into Washington and renting a car to complete this trip. We have thought about purchasing a car at one end, and selling it at the end. However, I am assuming the licensing and insurance etc. issues for non-residents would outweigh any benefit to this.
Additional background: a friend of mine is getting married in San Francisco on the 21st of July, so we need to be there by the 20th at the latest. We are planning to leave near the end of June (29th or 30th), depending on the schedules of my two road trip companions.
What we are looking for is any advice you can offer. Are there things on our road trip that look unnecessary for the effort of getting to them? Is this trip reasonable time wise? Car rental tips? Are there any rental companies that specialize in this type of rental?
Any other general advice you can provide would be great!
Thanks in Advance!
