Hey all, just wanted to get an idea if anyone was going to travel the east coast of USA. I and a mate andm aybe another mate are travelling to the USA East coast for end of semester/graduation. We will be starting off in Miami and working our way around the coast up north. Definite stops are the NYE in NY. I'll be travelling for a good month and a bit. Shout out to us if you're gonna be in East coast from December 2008 to the end of Jan 2009!

Do you have any clue what Chicago's like in January? The word is FROZEN! Bring your woolies.

does that mean thermal underwear? I'm kinda hesitant as i heard they bake your goods if ur not careful!
Would you get away with Jeans and a snow jacket?

Don't want to pop your bubble but it going to be COLD everywhere above NC
I live in CT and it starts getting cold here in late Oct till around April
Dress warm and no thermals will not bake you

i'm all up for cold weather, summer in Australia can get really really hot. NY Day 3 years ago was 43 degrees, so having a hangover and walking home in that heat was pertty Xtreme :)
I'll be brining thermals thats for sure! I'm going to canada so i guess i'll experience the real cold deal hehhe
