  1. Default From border to border?


    Im new to this site, and looking for some help :)

    Me and my friend are thinking of having a road trip across America next summer.
    Flying from Ireland to New York and hopefully ending up in Los Angeles.
    we dont care about time as we are both taking a year out.

    Are we being realistic driving from one side the country to the other?
    Would this be possible to do?

    Many thanks

    Default Why wouldn't it be?

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Of course you can make a trip across the USA, people do it all the time, and it is wasn't possible, there wouldn't be much need for a website like this.

    Now of course there is some work involve in making any dream a reality, so you will have to figure out things like how much time you'll want to spend, what you'll have for money, what you'll do for transportation, and what things you want to see along the way.

    You can certainly find help answering those questions just by looking around here, both in the forum and the planning section. And if you have some specific questions, you can't find answers to, feel free to ask.

    I hope you have plenty of time, money and a good automobile. I assume you will be renting a car?

    Will you be renting a car? How much will that cost?

    At some point, I plan on driving from Washington DC to Los Angeles. 2700 miles. Intersate 40. Might get on historic route 66 at some areas. Might take 5 days each way to see all the sights.

    Default Just for reference

    It does take about 5 days to drive from coast to coast, but that pace requires you to be on the road for about 10 hours a day, and leaves very little time left over for sightseeing.
