Afternoon. Me and some friends are looking into taking a road trip across America next summer (2011). We've only just started looking into it now and obviously need to save up some money before we cn start booking things.
The plan at the moment is to rent a campervan and spent 1 month travelling from New York down through Virgina, Maryland, Tennessee, Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada and the California ending in LA. I don't know if those states are in the correct order but you get the idea.
Would a month give us enough time to take in some of the best sights in each state? I want to try and fit in as many different areas as possible, from mountains to deserts. Would this journey allow this or is there a better route to take? I've also budgeted a total of £2500 each ($4000 +/-) for everything like campervan hire, flights, fuel, some accomodation, food etc etc. Is this enough or have I aimed too low. There are 5 of us so far.
Any advice would be much appreciated
