Hi, newbie here - im planning on a 6-9 month expedition to cover Thailand/Aus and end up in the States.
Quite a few of my friends have done Australia and Thailand but i dont know anyone who's done any real backpacking in the States. They say you can backback Thailand blindfolded as its very tourist friendly and you meet so many tourists (Im British btw) to help you.
Is this true of the US? How easy would it be to go from East to West (or visa-versa) on greyhounds or other cheap transport, and to take a couple of months to travel across? How many cities would be realistic in one month?
Thanks for any advice or referral to any other useful sources :-)
