My name is James and me and 2 of my friends from Liverpool England are planning a road trip around California/Vegas for September for three weeks. Ive never done anything like this before and i have made a list of things i need to evaluate! I have read through a few of the Vegas threads and they have been mighty helpful!
The main driver will be 23 and I have already seen reasonable prices for car hire for the 3 weeks about £800. We will be flying in to San Francisco driving down to LA (with stops in-between) then across to Vegas then back to SF! I realise this to be a 2k mile round trip after we get lost and go to other places im guessing at 4,000 miles 18mpg $700 fuel at $3.05 a gallon.
We are planning on staying in hostels in the city's and camping between! With us coming in September though i was wondering if many camping sites will be closed? Were planning on coming down route 101 along the beaches!
Apart from my flight and car hire, I was wondering if anybody could help me with trying to make a figure of how much money I will need whilst travelling. I was thinking $25 a day food but I'm not sure on accommodation prices!
Also are there any must see sites in California whilst I'm there or must do things?
