Name USA West to East Coast Spring/Summer Road Trip

60-odd days West Coast to East Coast Route, chasing summer

General Route is (but flexible on timing, where we go and obviously stopping at places in between!):
San Diego -> Los Angeles -> Pacific Highway to San Francisco -> Yosemite National Park -> Las Vegas -> Grand Canyon -> Colorado -> New Orleans ->Florida -> Washington, DC -> New York

You can see a map of the route here http://goo.gl/maps/Tl0Jd

Looking for travel partners who can join for part or all of the trip for some good times, conversation and company and to help pitch in for the cost of the transport.

The car we will be riding in is one of these --> http://www.escapecampervans.com/Malibu_Campervan.html

We can fit up to four people seated but only three sleeping (however there is the option of tenting and/or hostelling if one chooses - I am going to try to take advantage of the cheap camper accommodation!)

The cost is based on doing the whole trip, otherwise you can do it on a 'per day' basis for legs of the trip which you wish to do. In this case, the cost will be around US$45 per day. Prices include the car, petrol and 'wild camping' accommodation in the camper (if you want it, otherwise you can stay in a hostel or whatever is available).

About me: I am currently three months through a 12 month round the world trip. Excited for travelling across America. Easy going, keen to meet good people, into adventure activities and sports. Check out my couch surfing profile for more.

Feel free to ask any questions. Get into it!

Titus van Zon Hey Devon, I'm Titus, 19 years old and from Holland. I was planning a 2-3 month road trip east to west coast but my friend cancelled because of work. I still want to do a road trip through the US before i go to university. Your trip seems very interesting. I actually wanted to see some southern states but at this moment i'll take any chance i get because it's quite hard to find a travel partner. I just wanna go, enjoy and experience. If things dont work out we could always split. Let me know what you think. Greets, Titus

Devon Nel Sorry, I am 23, from New Zealand. You can see my couchsurfing profile here which should give you more information about me http://www.couchsurfing.org/profile.html?id=120CDUSA. It is just me and nothing certain at this stage (except that I am going to the states), just keen to see what interest arises. Thanks, Devon.
