Hey! So my boyfriend and I are planning a road trip for the month of August to go from Vermont to California! I have taken many trips with family and friends, most by plane and few by car so I have a few questions because this is our first actually cross country road trip alone and were not totally sure what to expect!
Like, about how much money should we bring along for the trip? I already have the gas money saved up, so I'm not worried about that, but from your experiences what would you suggest for spending on the trip? We are going to go as cheap as possible, by the way, we enjoy the "roughin it" kind of camping and such. Also, what are the best routes to take for new travelers like us? We want to take route 66, because it our first time, but do you have any other suggestion? Basically, I will take any advice I can get!
ps. I also have family that we are going to stop and see on our way, so we wont be completely alone or lost. I have an aunt and some friends that have taken a few trips like this before too. So we are asking them for advice on helping us plan it out! Thanks so much for you time!!
