Hi everyone,

I am a 24 year old male from Yorkshire. I am going to be working for Camp America in Alaska from May until August 11th this summer. Should be great but after that I want to travel around lots more of the USA but dont know where to start.

I am probably going to hit the West Coast first and need to end up in New York by the end of October for my flight home.

If anyone would like to meet up anytime, anywhere please let me know as I would love to share any experiences with some travel companions. Also I dont really know where to start on the backpacking scene so any advice would be great.

I would happily listen to any ideas of a road trip and share the cost. We would just need a place to meet and then the world is our oyster (well the US is anyway!)


Scott :)

Cheers mate.

A boozy night in NY sounds great to me especially as it will be quite close to my flight home so could end my trip in style.

So do you live on NY then or just travelling yourself?

Is there some decent hostels to stay in? Where hopefully its safe and some nutcase wont mug me in my sleep...

Oh and one last thing, is this TrekAmerica any good cos I was thinking of maybe joining one of there trips around the west coast. It costs like £800 but you get to do loads of cool stuff.

Well that could be NY sorted out. Hope to see all the sights of the Big Apple whilst I am there.

How about anyone else on the West Coast? Really need some help on that part like where to stay, where to go and things.

What is the best way to get from Los Angeles to New York mid-October without flying and for the cheapest possible costs?
