Just found this site and I'm loving it so far! I'm Azzah from Vancouver, Canada and I am planning a 19 day roadtrip next year in April! Turning 40 and I thought this would be such a great entry!
I'm going to be heading out in an suv rental and will be spending half my time staying in my suv and half my time finding hostels.
I have so many questions but I don't want to overwhelm you guys so I'll start with just a couple! Thanks in advance for your replies!
1) Safety - I'm a female who is 5 feet tall. I'm wondering, if I stay at some well known truck stops, could this be a possible safety issue? I have read quite a bit about solo female travelers at truck stops and it seems to be fine but I was wondering if any of you had some hands on experience that you could share with me:)
2) I thought of flying into Vegas and heading straight to Zion National Park. This is about as far as I've gotten! haha My question is, is it better to have a detailed itinerary before leaving or can I just calculate my time in each state and then learn more about what I want to see closer to the time that I'm there.
I'm a little overwhelmed to be honest. I feel like there is so much to see and so much to figure out that I'm going to miss something.
Any tips would help. I guess I could tell you a bit about the things I like doing so if you have any tips that would be great! I love trying out activities wherever I go. Anything from bungee jumping, to hiking, to swimming, anything really! I love to see beautiful natural sites (ex. Bryce Canyon looks unreal!) I love to camp and I love to meet new people!
Okay that's enough for now, sorry for overwhelming you guys which I thought I would not do!
