hi - my friend and i having finished our degrees want to do a big (maybe up to 6 months) road trip right across the states, but we have a couple questions.
first - we are definitely going to buy a big V8 soft-top to travel in. are we realistic in looking for a rusty but reliable one for under $800? also, how easy would it be to insure, we'll be 23 and 24. i have friends in the US - could they insure a vehicle for us?
also, how long can we stay - what's the deal with visas - i heard that you can stay up to 3 months and then you need a visa. are these easy to get - what conditions do you need to satisfy to get a visa, and how long do they last for?
lastly, is it legal to park in a carpark etc. and sleep in your car overnight? not every night of course...but is it legal?
also, can anyone recommend any comprehensive on-line travel guides, and specifically, on-line road trip USA guides?
thanks in advance
