I am from the UK, and am planning a road trip around the US in about February time, 2008, with my girlfriend. What I really want to know is if anyone can give us some advice regards where to start. I have family in New York, but i think it's going to be a bit too cold up there to start driving around and staying in camp sites! And if we start in a warmer state, ie Florida what is needed to buy a second-hand car/mini-van? ie Insurance, pollution certificate, etc.
Ideally we want to camp a bit, stay in motels a bit, drive from one coast to the other, or up the east or west coast, before selling the car at our final destination. Has anyone any advice on the best way to achieve all this?!
