Right, where to begin? Well im planning a road trip across America in a couple of years once i finish school and i though now was as good a time as any to start planning (and saving money :/ ). So heres a list of questions that i have at the moment:

How to begin planning?
How much money will i need on average (say on a monthly basis)?
Should i fly over to America then buy a car when i get there?
Any advice on where to start my trip?
Which is the best way of sorting out accomadation?
Plus what types of accomadation should i consider (hotels, rentting etc)?
Any great sites i must see?
Im planning on working my way across Americ so any advice on that?
How much luggage should i be thinking of taking?

Okays im bombarding you with questions now, please feel free to only answer a few :') As you can tell im very exited already haha ohh plus if theres any other questions that i havent asked that i should be please let me no :)

Thanks Everyone!

Have you thought about taking an escorted tour? Instead of planning an itinerary of your own, they will have one prepared for you with destination guides and hosts.
