hello all. this is my first post. i am planning a monster summer 2006 road trip so i am sure this wont be my last post. any suggestions for someone who currently has no reliable means of transportation? my own thoughts have ranged from buying/hooking up a mini bus to renting a car. buying anything is a considerable investment and subsequent risk and i understand that renters must be over 25. is it possible that my answer would be not to travel? i hope not. thanks.
