Me and my friend are planning to drive cross country this summer before colelge in the fall, from Massachusetts through Pennsylvania, Illinois, Wisconsin, Montana, Idaho, etc to Washington state, down the west coast, then back across the southwest, texas, Louisiana, Tennessee, NOrth Carolina, and back up the eastern seashore to MA. we want to do it in three weeks because my friend has softball all of june and most of july and i have a cousin's wedding in august. we know itll involve long driving, and we plan to camp. we were wondering if it is possible to do in three weeks, and we would appreciate any tips regarding food, whether to make reservations at campsites, car maintenance (2003 Dodge Neon - my mom's afraid its gonna break down which i think is unreasonable), and budgetting, especially with gas prices. i figured wed need about $1250 each. Any tips would be great. I've done a lot of planning but need to make sure im not missing anything or, completely off base. Thanks, Dani
