Right - basically I'm just after a little general information and suggestions about road trips in America.
My partner and I are hoping to go to America for a month next April, and he mentioned that he'd like to do the Route 66. I've been looking into doing the trip from Los Angeles to Chicago, rather than Chicago to L.A, but I didn't realize hiring a car would be so expensive. We were hoping in doing it in around 15-16 days, but a car would cost over £1000 for this - is this the general going rate?
Might be a silly question, but neither of us have been to America before so not really got a clue!
If so, we were looking at maybe doing part of the journey - is there any part you'd recommend more than others?
I'd really really appreciate any kind of suggestions!
