I have just found this site and will take some time to learn what I can but if someone can start me off I would appreciate it.
I have managed to persuade 2 of my friends to 'do' some form of road trip in the US next summer, 2010. We have all just turned 40, are all English and have very flexible partners! We have 4 weeks, plenty of money but no idea what to expect. We originally were going to do route 66 but are now contemplating NY to LA. We have just spent the weekend discussing it, one wanted to go on Harley Davidsons, I wanted to do it in a soft top car and stay in motels and the third wants to do it in an RV. The RV seems to have won the day although not definitely but I will start investigating prices soon.
Some basic questions: Which way should we do, East - West seems to be most popular? Does anyone think an RV is the wrong thing to do? My worry is that parking for RVs near towns will be too far from the centres? We have to do Aug as one of us is a teacher. Is this a good month to go? I am sure I will have loads more questions but don't want to be greedy.
