A year in a camper seeing the USA

Jump to last reply

Wll I have finally decided what I want to do starting may 1, 2013. I am going to put all my belongings in storage, and tour the USA for 1 year. I am able to work from pretty much anywhere.... And since I just turned 40.... Thought, why not?
Then I realized how much work goes into this sort of thing. The budget is clearly to spend less than I earn per month....
Things I am taking into consideration are
1. The seasons. I want to avoid being caught in the snow too much, so touring the northern portion of the USA from may til November.... I am starting off in Florida. And if I can see some of Canada, that would be great.
2. Where to stay. I am planning on getting a tear drop camper.... Unless I can find something better. I have a vw beetle convertible, and might have to something more drastic like a true camper.... Or would a pop up work?
3. Where to go. I want to see a lot of nature. I love camping... Love parks, monuments, historical sights....and I really want to see Montana, I understand there are some dinosaur digs there! Would really enjoy getting in on that!
4. Safety. I am traveling with my dog, who is all of 6 pounds. I have to consider that when choosing places to stay too.
5. Budget. I can understand that I won't be paying rent for a year... But I will have to pay for camp grounds....and my sister says, worst case scenario, you stop at Walmart for a free night.
6.sites. What should I see.....

So I think I have a starting point...l. Care to help me out?
