First,let me share with you that I'm pleased I found that forum,and from a little bit of "observation" it seems very professional.
If you guys don't mind, I would like to ask you some very basic questions, because me and my friends(currently we are 3) have to start with something and get a general idea of this kind of exprerience :)
First of all let me mention it's a dream of us. we are,for now, 3 guys (1*23 yo 2*21.5 yo), and guys our age usually go to 2 major kinds of trips: Far east and south\central America. We are different ;) we want to have an RV cross-country trip before each of us begins with his studies.
Of course,we would like it to be a very strong experience,therefore, we thought about a 2 months trip(at least), so we could explore America as much as we can and do many types of activities, such as National Parks, sport events, museums and much more.
We would also like to rent a relatively new RV, not too fancy though...basic I would say. Maybe it'll cost us a little bit more than motels but the experience is too tempting to miss,in our point of view.
Our budget is 10-12 k dollars each. the time is: spring\summer 2015. the course: we don't know yet but our general thought is a loop starting from east.
My first and maybe the most important question is: is it a resonable budget for 2 months travelling+ spending money? (after calculating basic expanses such as renting rv+insurance+fuel+tent+food+extra gear+idk lol)
Thanks Alot guys!
