Its my first time on here,
but me and 2 friends are looking to travel America when they've finished uni,we want to start planning now so we can start saving.
Has anyone done this ? i want as much info and past experiences as possible.
we defiantly want to start in California (San Fransisco,LA,Laguna Beach,San Diego) then go to Nevada(Las Vegas)-Arizona(grand canyon)-New Mexico(Santa Fe)-Texas(Dallas,Austin)-Louisiana(New Orleans)-Mississippi(Jackson)-Tennessee(Memphis,Nashville)-Pennsylvania(Washington,New Jersey,New York) we would love to fit Miami and Florida in to but don't know if we will be able too
we don't have any solid plans yet so any info would be great,we will be traveling around on public transport (any info please?)
possibly renting a car in some cities.
And staying in cheap accommodation ( should we book this before we go ?)
although i am a bit worried as ive seen so many movies about travelers a crazy person and creepy hostels/motels. so will only be staying in safe ones.
also what budget would you think ?
so basically any information and or your experiences would be great

ljr,
I have helped 15 TP members buy vehicles, mostly minivans, for their tour of the US. I am going to send you more info in a PM.

"... although I am a bit worried as I've seen so many movies about travelers a crazy person and creepy hostels/motels..."

========================

All those movies are based in fact and they all take place in the US, right along the route between LA and New York.

Good luck.

Cheers,
