Hey there, it has been one of my long time dreams to go on an American road trip. Thankfully, as my senior year in highschool draws to a close, that dream may become a reality. I would really appreciate any advice that you could give me in terms of making my trip a reality.
Myself and a female friend of mine want to go on a road trip starting in north-eastern Georgia. Our goal is the pacific ocean. Some places we would like to visit are Memphis, Nashville, Lousiana, Mississippi, Houston, Los Angeles and maybe even hop over the border to Chiuhuhua or Monterey, Mexico. All of these are flexibile if anyone has any better suggestions or routes.
Realistically, both of us could probably get 2000-2500 dollars each out of our bank accounts.
The choice of vehicles at this point is an F250, a Chevy Avalanche, or a 1998 s500 Mercedes. All of which have their advantages and disadvantages. We have also decided we are comfortable with roughing it, aka sleeping in our car or in tents. We both want this to be a trip that we'll always remember.
Given our funds, what could we realistically expect in terms of how long we could expect the trip to last, how much funds we could allocate towards fun (read fun as clubs, bars, roadside attractions, etc). We're also both willing to work, if necessary, on our trip as bartenders or waiter/waitress or other unskilled labor (note in Georgia you can get a bartending license at 18).
I really can't wait to hear back from all of you. Thanks for your time. I'm sorry if I put this in the wrong section of the forum, it just kinda seemed like it was worthy of discount trips because of the seemingly low fund pool.
