Well in about a week I'll be taking a 3 week road trip. Hopefully the trip of the lifetime. Me and my friends have been planning this for a while, and planning it with budget in mind. The budget is primarily there to make it cheaper for us to budget doing outdoors events. Roughly the trip will be taking us from New York -->South Dakota badlands, custer, rushmore etc--> Wyoming, tetons, yellowstone--> Utah where we'll be camping for a day in zion and bryce--> Arizona, Grand Canyon for 3 days (Enough time?), thenup to 4 corners to mesa verde, and in colorado well be staying in colorado springs for a while and then back to NY.

Now we are going to camp everynight but the first, because we need a night to unwind after about a day of driving. 3 guys, alternating, we plan on doing the first stretch to south dakota in one push. We'll be living out of the cooler and we'll be doing cooking with propane burners.

Any advice on the overal trip? Any tips to save cash? Should i stay in grand canyon or utah longer? Biggest dangers??

Anyway I love these boards, thanks for anything :)
