Good day, fellow travellers!
Me and three of my closest friends are going to cross America this summer, from the 28th of June to the 29th of July to be exact.
We'll be starting off in Los Angeles, and travel towards New York.
An early draft of our route is available here.
We do also plan on going down to Florida, to visit Orlando and Miami, but the plan so far is to go there by plane, as it would be quite a detour to drive.
Since this is our first time in America, we got (as you probably can imagine) a ton of questions, which I hope some of you can help us find an answer to.
First off, we plan to buy a car in Los Angeles, preferrably an SUV (Ford Explorer/Expedition-size).
Have any of you got an recommandations when it comes to buying a car for a roadtrip? Are there any vehicles you would recommend? Any pitfalls we should avoid?
Next, we'll be setting up a website for the trip, and we're trying to get hold of some mobile broadband that we can use most of the way. So far I've found a few companies in the US that offer this, but I'm uncertain if this is possible to get, seeing how we don't have a permanent adress in the US, nor will we be using it for a lenghty amount of time.
Any one who's got any experience with this? Any alternatives we should concider?
And of course - what's worth seeing over there? We've managed to come up with a lot of stuff that we want to see and experience, but I'm sure we've missed a lot as well. We don't like to stray too much off the drafted route, though.
We've probably got a ton of others questions as well, but there were the first things off the top of my mind. Thanks for any help you can provide us :)
