Hi there,

We're from the UK and planning the trip of a lifetime next year. We're wanting to take 6 months and drive across from San Franciso cutting across Colorado and dropping down through Kansas, New Orleans and round the coast to eventually tuen up in Orlando.

Question is, when is a good time to start this and is San Francisco the best side to start from? I'm worried about hitting Colorado and it not being the weather to camp. We'll be on a budget that should allow a mix of camping and motels I hope.

I was thinking of starting August time in San Francisco, heading up through Colorado during Aug/Sept?
