I am planning a roadtrip for the summer of 2008. I have 3 weeks vacation booked from late July to early August. The following trip is what I'm planning for and I have a few questions (which will appear further down)..
Saturday, July 26 - Depart from Vancouver, BC. Destination: Thunder Bay, Ontario.
I am travelling solo, which is cool because I love to drive and the call of the open road must be answered!
So, with 3 weeks available for there and back, my questions are:
A) Is it a good idea to travel either eastbound or westbound using the U.S. highway (interstate) system?
B) Is it safe? I'm not worried so much about my personal safety while driving as I am about being alone in a "foreign" land...
C) Also, are there any websites where people can find "travel buddies"? Is that even a good idea to consider?
D) 420 is something I enjoy. Will I be able to find some along the way? Any tips on that?
I just can't see driving both ways in Canada.
Thanks for allowing me to post this thread. Any comments, thoughts, suggestions, opinions, recommendations and feedback in general is much appreciated.
PS - I'm not so much concerned about seeing "touristy" things....For me, the highlight of the vacation is the trip itself.
