Type Travel Partners Wanted

Name Summer 2013 Road trip USA

-Do you want to spend next summer on the roads of USA?
-Do you own a drivers license?
-Are you looking for flexible and easygoing people to travel whit?
-Is the travel as an experience more important to you than destinations?
-Does route 66 sound freakin' amazing?

I will be spending the next summer in the United States and I wanna hit the road. Hopefully start from California or New York and cross the country whit 2-4 others. Most likely rent a car cause buying one seems like a bureaucratic hellhole unless someone is local.

The exact route is not an important thing for me. But for the sake of making this ad more concrete I say I'd like to go from cost to cost which way ever. For example Starting from New York the Chicago and Route 66 to Arizona then Grand Canyon, Las Vegas and finally to LA. That same thing can obviously be made from wes to east. And because we are independet travelers whit enough time, we can change our plans if we hear about something awesome that is hapening somewhere awseome. That being said I think its little hopeless to plan an exact itinerary beforehand and try to stick to it for two (or so) months. Nothing will be as planned but more awesome instead.

So if you can see yourself in this ad you totally should contact me cause this is hapening. I hope to get a group of 3 to 5 people from where and wich gender ever.

illuzion Hello you all. I am deeply sorry for not answering to your messages. I was suppose to sell my apartment before 1st of march because after that date a new law of energy certification of apartments and houses has to be earned in order to sell the apartment. Well as you might guess i'm in a shitload of trouble for not having sold the house by that time and not having earned the energy efficiency certificate for my apartment and it looks like it will take months now that nobody has it yet. So I wont be able to leave before I've got the cert and I've gotten rid of that troublemaker of an apartment I'm stuck whit. Now I can only hope the cert comes to me within this month and the the apartments sells quickly, then maybe I can still travel in the States for a couple of months. but that wont most likely hapen before mid july. So I am sorry to belive that you guys should look for more reliable compansion :( If a miracle of me flying to states in july happens, maybe I contact you guys for an update of your whereabouts.

JonnyH Hey Ilari, are you still planning this trip? As with Sean and Daniel, I am very interested as your route, timings and game plan are identical to a trip I have envisaged for some time but want to do with others after my mate dropped out. I would like to see all of places you have suggested but again I'm easy on the exact route as plans change en route and from picking up pointers from other people on the road. The most important thing is the experience not just the destinations. I'm 28, an ex-marine, who appreciates the outdoors and loves a road trip and have experience after driving round big old Australia a few years back. I have a full drivers licence and agree that renting a car seems like the better option after researching the apparent nightmare of buying a car in the US. With a few people on board the costs will be much less too. Ilari, Sean and Dan - let me know if you want to chat about it. Cheers. John

sean powell Hello Ilari. My name is Sean, and I am sat here in a cafe in Canada with my friend Daniel, and we are very interested in your proposition. We are planning a road trip, believe it or not, more or less the exact route you have suggested and within that time frame. We are university friends who came to canada to work and want to have one big trip before we leave. We are extremely flexible, the budget you suggested applies to us, and we are thinking of finding someone else to go with to keep costs down. Are you aware that it is not possible to rent a car in the states if you are under 25? (we are both 22) so if that is a sticking point and you are over 25 then by all means find someone else, but we are basically looking for someone to buy a car with, or just travel with. However ,if you were to rent the car we would be more than obliged to share the driving responsibilities and pool resources. We are two very laid back guys who love music, travelling and meeting new people. If you are interested at all then please email me at seanpowell90@googlemail.com, and we can get something going. Hope to hear from you soon, Sean and Dan.
