I have recently finished reading a book by a bloke called Dave Gorman, called America Unchained. In it he aimed to rediscover the real America by avoiding all forms of chain companies - so that meant food, petrol and accomodation.
I am planning a road trip for 2010 (a long way away) with 3 other friends. We want to hire a camper van a and drive from the East coast to the West coast for about 1 month.
I'm trying to think of a challenge for our road trip but I haven't found any feasible ideas I would like to do. I have seen the ideas on this website, and although they seem nice they just don't tickle my fancy really.
The best idea suggested to me so far was to sample all of the top 20 burgers in the US (as listed in GQ magazine). However there are a clump of outlets on the East coast and a clump on the West coast, but there are a few up North and one south in Florida. This would mean doing pretty much the whole perimeter of the USA which I think would be too much for just 1 month? Would it?
Does anyone have any more feasible ideas? They need to be achievable and novel.
Thanks a lot.
