wel halo ther, fellow SS.org... people. I'm about to be released from the army in about 4 months (finally), and I'm thinking about all kinds of different places to travel to, as I want to take a break before getting into Uni and everything. Now, one of the ideas I had was a trip in the US- something along the lines of North to South kind of trip (ie- starting from the canadian border and heading down towards mexico, going along the west coast). What I'm asking is this- first of all, assuming I'll travel by car, how long will something like that take? I mean, I'll obviously stop and see sights, but I want to know if I'm looking at a 2-3 months trip or a 2 years thing Second, prices. Obviously that's not something that can be estimated accurately, but I wanted to see if any of you guys would care to tell me how much would gas cost me (again, assuming I'm doing this by car), and food prices, stuff like that. Also- I've been toying with the idea of sleeping in the car (getting a van and sleeping in the back for example). Is this legal in most states, just parking in some parking lot and sleeping in your car? Since it isn't legal here, I want to know if it's a good idea or not... Thirdly, assuming I won't be getting by car- can such a thing be done using public transportation? buses, trains, so forth. and how much will motels and the such cost? (approximately, of course) Last (for now at least)- if you guys have any recommendations about places to see I'd love to hear I know it's quite a lot of question so I'd be very happy if you could even answer just a few, anything helps Thanks a lot in advance!
