I'm planning a trip from Charlotte, NC to LA for late August early September 2015. I'm interested in utilizing the bus (mega bus, Greyhound) and Amtrak for this trip.
Some key places I want to explore are:
Albuquerque, NM or Phoenix or Tuscan, AZ
To keep costs down, I want to stay at hostels on the days that I don't utilize a train sleeper.
Has anyone ever done something similar? I'm at the early stages of planning and would appreciate any advice, suggestions, feedback and more!
