I was wondering if I could get some help please :)
Me and 2 friends (all male) are hoping to do a 2 month US (and a little canada) roadtrip following this route:
LA - grand canyon
G.Canyon - Las Vegas
Las Vegas - Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz - San Fran
San Fran - Portland
Portland - Seattle
Seattle - Vancouver
Van - Minnaepolis
Minni - Chicago
Chicago - Toronto
Toronto - New York
Total Mileage: 5513
we understand that there will be stops in between these destinations and of course theres getting lost :) and have estimated we will be driving about 6000 miles?
We are hoping to do this a cheaply as possible. This means sleeping in our transport, which we decided will be a 2nd hand bought van. We are wanting to do this from 28th march to 29th may 2008.
Any tips on what sort of van would be the most comfortable sleeping in the back (on a budget)? I read that something like a chevy astro with the seats removed is best?
We have budgeted about $3400-$4000 each, which we hope will cover (sharing) all van costs, petrol, food, doing/seeing stuff, basically everything not including our flights. In other words we have between $10,200-12,000 for 3 people. What we really want to know is if this is too hopeful or do-able on our budgets?
Any other tips would be greatly appreciated. Look forward to hearing from you :)
