I'm looking for advice for a female solo traveler going from Carmel, CA- Portland, OR to Burlington, Vermont.
I want to go through Idaho and Montana and have a friend in Michigan, but have no idea where to hit as far as getting through the Dakotas-- and after that. I've never done this before and am both terrified and excited.
So am looking for safe places to stay-- the best route to go as far as fun, food and economy.
I don't have a ton of money and after driving 7 hours on the 1 from LA to Carmel-- definitely don't want to drive more than 6 -7 hours a day.
Thank you in advance!
