Here's the plan: Me and my buddy are College students from Toledo. We're embarking on a 9 day road trip at the begining of march. We're 'officially' amateurs but I've taken some cool trips in the past by bus and hostel I also went down south for two breaks to help with hurricane relief. I think we've got what it takes: we intend on taking two lane highways and don't mind getting lost. I'm ok with anything from nature, beaches, nightlife, cities to sightseeing. We're about to purchase a beater Thunderbird. When we get there, we're hoping to sell it either to a used car lot or a junkyard, then fly back. We think this maximizes our time for driving out. Also we bought a CB radio. Just a few questions:
1. Is this plan flawed? (i.e. are we crazy) Any ideas to fill in the gaps
2. Where might we best meet people? I like hostels and busses cause there's always people to meet. Any favorite hostels? We're gonna stay toward the SW and S California
3. I'm interested in Texas and S Cal, any must see road trip stops?
4. What's good conversation material over the CB radio. I'd like to use it to ask about the area or directions etc.
Thanks a bunch!
