Hi there

I'm 21 and I plan to take a year break from my studies to see the world. The plan is to go on the road trip starting in spring 2006, (april or may) on the east (NY). Then go south to Florida along the coast. Next, hit the west, New Orlean, Houston, Carlsbad, Roswell, Santa Fe, Grand Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, nat. parks in Utah, Las Vegas, Yosemite, Kings Canyon, Sequoia, SF and finally Los Angeles. It's gonna be a low budget trip (so we'll camp) and will take 3 to 4 months.

Currently I'm looking for info about some interesting places or events along the road (like ufo festival in Roswell or apple feast in Oak Glen, CA) that are not usually mentioned in guidebooks.
If you know about any, please let me know.

Actually, I'm looking for travel companions as well. Traveling in group (lets say 4 people) always make the trip cheaper and... funnier.
So if You would like to join the trip, feel free to write.

Here is a site that has an interesting collection of "roadside attractions" for every state. They have a drop-down menu so pick the state of your choice and see what quirky things can be found...
Roadside America

Sounds like a fun trip!
