I will probably travel to the West Coast next July and will be in Eugene or SF (undecided yet) on July 31st. I will then need to be in Anchorage on August 8th, and a road trip through Oregon, Washington, British Columbia and Alaska sounded like a lot more fun than a plane ticket! That would be a week for 4000 or 5000km.
However, if you forget about 24h in NYC last summer, I've never been to North America (I live in Denmark, though I'm French), so I don't really know what it's like to drive over there, and I have no idea of the price of such an expedition. I would have to rent a car and then give it back in Alaska (I'll fly back from Anchorage two weeks later), and then of course there is fuel... Could you please give me just a very rough idea of how much I can expect to have to pay for all that? And any other tip/advice/warning would be more than welcome, as I don't really know what to expect.
Also, I don't think it's doable by myself (too tiring and expensive) and haven't found (yet) any friends to come with me, so if you are interested or know where I can find people who would be, please let me know :)
Thanks in advance,
