I am planning to drive from Toronto to California/Northwest USA late-march to early-june. My current plan is to drive along the east coast, zip through the south and spend the majority of my time in the Southwest/West/Northwest. I want to see all the National Parks/Forests that I can, eat as much BBQ as possible and drink lots of good beer/wine. I will be travelling solo and plan to camp most nights with the occasional motel/airbnb for extra rest. I will be driving an older honda civic that I hope will serve me well. What I still do not have is camping gear. I have yet to decide if I want to rent gear (I've used Lower Gear before and it was great) or if I want to buy my own.
I have yet to plan a rough itinerary so anything would be great. What I should hit, how long I should stay, etc. Thanks!
