Hello, I made a thread a couple of months back about a road trip I wanted to take with my brother around the United States. We have since come to the realization that we don't have the time or money to make that trip. We have down sized now to a few locations. We will start the trip from Raleigh, NC and head to Richmond, VA to see the Washington Redskins at their training camp, then head up to New York City, then to Chicago, IL to see our cousin, then to Glacier National Park, MT, then on over to Seattle, WA, then to Olympic National Park, WA before heading back home to Raleigh. We will be making this trip in my 2002 Kia Rio wich gets 27 highway miles per gallon. The round trip will be around 6,500 miles and I calculated the trip at 25 MPG, after all the math it came out to $910 for gas for the trip. We plan on starting this trip around the end of July and I just have a few questions if anyone could help, any advice would be appreciated.
1. Do you think this trip is possible to make happen in 2 to 2 1/2 weeks?
2. Do you think this trip is possible on a two thousand dollar budget between the two of us?
3. Do you recommend staying at hotels, sleeping in car, camp ground, truck stop, etc? Or a mixture of all, which would be cheapest?
4. Do you recommend visiting any places along the way or places within the talked about locations?
