So, its my first post. but im a long time reader.
I have quite a bit of time before I leave for law school and Im looking to take an extended trip around north america. In the past Ive gone on extensive trips throughout europe (3 times), a month long Haitian trip, and southeast asia, but i have yet to see much of the U.S. outside of the midwest. (besides family trips to DC, NY, and the capitalist mecca of Disney World)
But I have an old VW passat wagon and some cash stashed away and a tent. Im leaving from Chicago in mid January and need some suggestions. as far as restrictions, there arent really any. I know its a pretty open ended post, but i figure what the hell.
thought about tenting somewhere nice along a warm beach, but dont know how feasible that is in this day n age. Also, ideally I would love to take the highway up to alaska, but is this not a good idea travelling solo in the winter months?
in the end I think im just a dreamer who wants to experience something he read in On the Road during his early teenage years.
