My 3 friends and I want to rent an RV/ buy an old battered up RV and hit the roads when we finish our studies next year.
Provisionally we were thinking of heading down from Seattle, through Portland and down the pacific road in California seeing all the must see's there until LA. We then wanted to head through to Texas and spend time in Austin and Dallas (Houston potentially?). We then wanted to travel through the Deep South visiting Santa Fe, New Orleans, Memphis, Nashville, (maybe Kansas City?) and carry on to Georgia (Atlanta & savannah) before heading up the coastal route, spending time in the Carolina's, and ending up in NYC to fly home.
We thought the best time to do this was from the middle/end of August to the middle/end of October (max stay 90 days we have been told without visa?) as we'd have beautiful but bearable weather for the whole trip. We could well be wrong so please tell me if so!
This is completely rough and we would love your thoughts and advice on whether this is a good plan, whether it's feasible in 90 days, and if it's the right time to do it etc etc
A bit of info about our group
Jazz and blues
Mountains, deserts, rivers, beaches
What we'd like to do:
See the West coast, Texas and the Deep South and the best cities, landscapes and places there
To experience as much variation in US culture as possible
To have a holiday that we will never be able to beat!
Any and all advice would be greatly appreciated. Please help us on our quest for the ultimate American experience!
Thanks, Andrew and pals
