  1. Default First post: Western States road trip...

    My girlfriend and I are planning a road trip for next summer. It's going to be an estimated 4k miles, spread over about a month and a half. We will be going up the California coast, through the bottom of Oregon, through the middle of Idaho, down the west side of Wyoming, down the middle/west part of Colorado, the top of Arizona, and back to LA. The vast majority of the trip will be spent camping/hiking. This is our first time planning a road trip and would appreciate any tips/advice. Specifically we are concerned about overall cost of the trip as our budget is not exactly the biggest.

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    ...camping as your primary accommodation, and preparing most of your own meals, you should probably count on about $100/day for the two of you as a rule-of-thumb estimate for costs. That should also get you gas and a National Parks Pass, but not air fair or car rental which will be extra. For more details of what to consider when preparing your budget, have a read through this enumeration and then check out these tips for reducing costs to a minimum.

    As far as recommendations of what to see, you're talking about roughly a third of the country, far too big an area abd is as yet too generalized to list even a significant proportion of the possibilities for.
