My girlfriend and I are in the very early stages of planning a month long US road trip and we're a bit at a loss as to where to start. We've got a few routes in mind and know a few people scattered around the country that we could visit.
We'd be leaving from Ottawa, Canada and either heading straight south through New York State, or hauling over to Detroit and starting in Michigan. We've thought of three main routes we would be interested in: the great lakes area, the east coast, or a sprint to California to start followed by a slow meander back home.
Given a predominantly camping or car sleeping trip, is the California option at all time wise feasible?
Any tips, tricks and trivia are welcome.
