I've been reading through the forums for an hour and now and found everyone to be so helpful, so I decided to post a thread and ask for a bit of advice.
Next summer I plan on taking this road trip, taking US-50 across the states to San Francisco, then taking Highway-1 down the coast to Los Angeles, then Route-66 to St. Louis and back home on US-50.
I'm 21 years old and my girlfriend is 18 years old. Additionally, this is going to be our first real road trip, although I have driven all around the east coast, to Mass., to Florida, to Philadelphia, etc.
The question is, is this too ambitious? I've seen enough of the east coast and have never been to the west coast, or anywhere really west Pennsylvania (save for Vancouver and Alaska), so the area of real intrigue is really 3000 across the country.
I've roughly calculated $1300/person for gas and the time off is really no issue (3-4 weeks estimated), so is this realistic? I hold the belief that it IS realistic, but I'm an inexperienced road tripper.. unlike many of you! :)
ANY help would be appreciated! Thank you! :D
