My friend Tommy and I (purely platonic) are starting to plan a road trip from northwestern KY to Maine sometime in the summer, probably around July 4th. The problem is, where we are great friends, we are very different when it comes to travel. He hates to drive, but is willing to split the duty and the gas and plans on providing his car that gets 40 miles to the gallon. I LOVE to drive and prefer to get off the interstate and soak up local color on back roads and through small towns. I also love to camp and am not afraid of a truckstop shower if necessary. Tommy hates camping and is probably wanting to stay in more hotels than I am.
Given that neither of us are going to have a large amount of money for this trip, I vote to camp as much as possible to save money for the more important things.
If anyone has any suggestions on how to travel with someone so different from yourself or any suggestions on sights/stops along the way, please let me know!
Thanks and happy traveling!
