Hello guys! I am planning a road trip starting from NY with San Fransisco being the final destination in February. I have already marked a route which includes some places I would like to see and others where friends are. The plan is to drive south towards Orlando, Florida initially to visit some friends, then head west to New Orleans and then Texas. From there I would like to continue north towards Denver to see another friend and then again west towards Las Vegas (with a stop to see the Grand Canyon), then LA and finally San Fransisco. This is a one way trip as I will be flying from London to NY and then take a flight back home from San Fransisco. I need some help with the following: 1) How many days do you believe it would take me to complete the trip? (excluding my stays at certain stops), 2) What is the best route to take? (the most "interesting one"), 3) What is a realistic budget I would need for such a trip?
