I've been browsing the forum for a few days now after the ingenious idea of driving coast to coast in the USA popped into my head whilst under the afluence of incohol the other night, and now i can't shake it.
The rough plan at the moment is fly to an east coast city, Washington or Boston probably. Hire a car and make my way to San Fran' for my return flight 4 weeks later. The only place i can really think of visiting is Bonneville salt flats and Niagra falls. please tell me that the US isn't one big interstate and that there is something to do in the middle of it. I like the idea of staying in hostels as apposed to BnBs and Motels because i would quite like to meat other travellers, and i am tight with my cash.
I have no preference to being in the north or the south or the millage covered, i am going in either October 08 or Feb 09 (depending on how quickly i get my arse into gear). I've got about £5000 ($10,000 at the current exchange rate) to pay for flights and car rental. I much prefer country side to big smelly cities. I can cope with the cold being a hardend brit, but a hint of sun and temperaturs above 20c and i go all pink and melt. hence my autumn/late winter dates.
Thanks in advance,
