Hi guys, just a a few brits who are suckers for the romantic idea of the american road trip, (hopefully in a classic american car).
TO be honest though, we know nothing of what to do an was looking for dome help or some direction in planning the trip.
Ther will prob be 4 of us but that could rise to 6, would hiring 2 cars be too expensive or would a 7seater do?
We also don't know ehere to start although we ultimately would like to finish in l.a. New York/Newark/Philadephia seem the most obvious startin points but we're sure though. Also some help on some nice backroad routes would be great aswell, including route 66 and other roads would be good. We would also like to stoop off a couple of big cities aswell if thats possible.
We haven't set out a budget yet since we don't know the cost of anythin in the states or how long it will take. I assume it will be 3 weeks. We'r not sure of petrol costs, assumin we have a car which does 30/40 mpg. In terms of food we're looking at eating sandwiches most the time and some times eating at resaturants.
In terms of accomodation, we're lookin at camping for at least half the time, so how much would campsites cost. We're looking to buy of the equipment from the states since the the exchange rate is so nice right now. also how much will motels cost and will we be able to get rooms as we go or shall we pre-book?
Im looking at a round figure of £600 which is around $1100 at the mo but i'm not entirely sure if this is do able.
I apologize for the vagueness and length of this post but I have literally no clue on where to start. I'd love some help or a starting point where I could go on and do some more research.
I think everything is covered......over to experts
