Me and two friends of mine are planning a roadtrip all the way across the country and back for May in 2006. We plan on taking the whole month, which Im hoping will be enough time. We're taking my car, which is a Honda CRV, which seems like it would be an excellent roadtrip car. It has a built in cooler, a picnic table that folds out, power outlets in the back, and lots of storage space. We plan on camping most of the time, in three pop-up tents. We decided that since we're spending all day together, it would be nice if our sleep time was apart in seperate tents, although our tents will be right next to each other.
So, here are some of my questions hopefully you guys can help me with :)
-Is a month enough time? We have talked about just driving straight for the first day to get off the east coast because we've been living here for 15 years and have already seen anything. We plan on going south for the way over and north on the way back to see as much as possible.
-What are the average camp-site prices for regular campsites and national park campsites? Is it worth it to camp at a national park?
-Did you plan anything (like reservations) ahead of time?
-What kind of food is recommended for a roadtrip?
-Did you ever have really bad arguments with the people you were roadtripping with?
-What would you recommend NOT bringing on a roadtrip?
I'm sure I'll have more questions later. Thanks! :)
