I'm planning to go on a road trip in the summer of 2009 with a friend. We're in very early stages of planning at the moment but we're hoping to stay about 2 weeks in the states and spend around £1000-1500 each. We're thinking of starting in New York and ending up at Los Angeles. We're hoping to stay in cheap motels for the majority of the journey and perhaps rent out a car. Apart from that i'm open to suggestions and advice.
