Thought I would introduce myself on this forum since I will probably be using it a ton for planning the upcoming trip. My 3 best friends and I are planning on taking a road trip the summer after we graduate Highschool. We've been talking about this since freshmen year and well this summer Its time to start planning. We want it to be 3 weeks - 1 month long and want to try and do it on $1000-2000 per person. The tentative route is Atlanta to San Francisco and everywhere in between. All of our parents are fairly on board. My parents, especially my dad are very safety oriented. He always talks about how we need to check out everywhere we are going to make sure the area is safe and everything. I agree with him, but I feel like he wants this trip to be much more planned than we are going to want it to be. I guess in general I just want some general tips, especially on easing my dads worries and making sure we can come to an agreement on the planning of this trip.
All in all, we're all really excited. We've always considered ourselves pretty adventurous and want something memorable and meaningful we can all do together before we go to college. We're open to suggestions. Maybe this weekend I can post some more locations we have in mind.
