I have always wanted to rent a nice car and go on an epic road trip.
Things I’ll Need:
- a nice car
- GPS unit
- a travel plan
- bottled water
- hotel reservations and/or camping gear
When I picture myself on this road trip, I’m picturing myself in a convertible with the top down or perhaps a nice muscle car. A Ford Mustang or something similar would cost about $750 for 2 weeks before taxes and fees from Avis rental car.
I’m pretty skilled at getting lost, so I’ll definitely want a GPS unit to help me find my way.
I plan to use something like roadtrippers.com to plan out a cross-country route that includes a number of interesting stops along the way.
Food & Drink:
Some of my planned stops will likely include places to eat, but between those I’ll need to stock up on some car friendly snacks, bottled water and probably grab a few drive through meals along the way. One suggestion I really liked was to use a shower caddy like this one:
to make managing meals in the car easier.
Camping is a possibility, but I’ll probably be more likely to stay in hotels along the way. Hotelclub.com or one of the other booking sites will likely come in handy.
A rough estimate of costs for this epic road trip are:
Rental Car: $900
Total Cost: $4450
I will update the blog when I am ready to begin planning my epic road trip.
