I'm spending next snow season somewhere in western Canada (probably Fernie) but I am thinking about flying into New York in mid September and travelling across slowly, visiting some friends along the way.

I'm on a real budget cos I'm going to be travelling for quite a while so I was thinking about hitchhiking to keep costs down. The other idea was to look into buying a cheap van. Would anyone be up for this?

If you're up for an adventure get in touch :)

Just a warning, i think Hitch hiking is illegal in most of the USA (dont know if anyone can confirm this?) but i dont know about it in Canada. Just incase you didnt know and ended up gettin in trouble with the law lol
