My friends and I are planning a roadtrip for the summer after we graduate high school. We are going to fly from Toronto, ON to Reno, NV. Then drive to Mammoth Lakes and snowboard for a couple days. Then drive west to San Fran, passing through Yosemite. Stay San Fran for a week then go south, hitting all the beaches on the coast to surf untill San Diego and then fly home.
We hope to do this in a month and we hope to rent a van that will seat 8 and luggage. We plan to stay in hostels and buy food as cheaply as possible.
My question is how much money should each of us plan to budget and if anyone has done a similar trip some tips would be nice.
Thanks so much.
