This is my first thread, and I'm happy to announce my exciting plans for a week or possibly longer, long road trip!
My start is in Pleasant Hill, California, and my destination is Blountville, Tennessee for my old best friend's wedding!
I can't explain much right now, as I am at work and my itinerary is at home right now, but when I get it I can post it.
Basically I will be following the Google Maps directions there and on the way back, go through a bunch of different states. (Sort of making an ugly oval).
My first question right now is this:
I am strapped for cash, and with the cost of living killing me,... I'm not sure if I'll have enough money by the time our trip arrives. I have a ton of family oriented family and friends who know about the trip, and they all are glad to see me take this trip. (I'm 21, they are all my parents ages, so it's not so weird but...)
I was curious how unorthodox it would be to write each a letter describing the road trip in its full entity and ask if anyone would be willing to throw a few bucks my way? It feels wrong, I know that, but this is also the trip of a lifetime for me, since I do not travel much. They all know that and wish the best for me, but I don't know if I should ask or not?
Any comments are appreciated, and more info to follow for advice on the sites and see's along the way! Thanks!
