I live in the UK and have been thinking about doing a road trip in the US for a few years now. It looks like I might have an opportunity to go at the end of the year.
I'd like to leave just after Christmas and I can be away for about a month. Other than that I'm more or less in the dark. My dad lives in New Orleans so I had thought about starting there and ultimately finishing in San Francisco - would this even be possible? Try and understand that you can drive anywhere in the UK in a day, my mind just boggles at the size of your country!
I don't want to spend all day, everyday behind the wheel. Happy to spend some money and make it a memorable holiday rather than get by on a strict budget. What sort of amount would I need for approx. a month? We've had the wettest summer on record so a bit of sunshine would be nice too.
Basically any help or advice you can give me will be hugely appreciated, as you can see I'm pretty clueless about the whole thing!
