I gonna travel from NY to San Francisco. What is the best and cheapest kind of transport? If I wanna stay in some towns and control my time?
If you are staying for a month or longer, I would consider buying a very cheap car $500-$1500 bucks off of craigslist, that or there are people who want their car driven across the country and will pay you to do that. KOA (http://koa.com/) campgrounds, have cheap arrangements like cabins or if you want to go really cheap and get a tent, campgrounds are easy to find. Most big cities have hostels (http://www.hostels.com/usa) and if you are under 25 youth hostels are pretty cheap as well. This is the cheapest way to go about road tripping across the country, but of course there are way more options if you want to spend a little bit of money. about 7 years ago
