After graduation, my best friend and I plan to take a massive road trip. From Ohio through Route66 to Santa Monica, and back via Vegas, Utah National Parks, Yellowstone, and Rushmore. We've budgeted about 14 days for the whole trip, although trip calculators have told us it should only take 11. Our obvious concerns right now are safety and money.
How do two 18 year old girls stay safe on the road? I've read a few articles but any tips would be helpful.
Also on saving cash, we're mostly camping or staying in hostels, and eating food via Walmarts along the way, occassionally stopping at a mom and pop place.
If you have any tips on safety, or saving cash, or if this is even reasonable please share!
