    How many days and when are you going?
    It's a big place so that might help.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    I'm thinking about the big old US of A, so what is there to see and what would you recommend as unmissable? It can be something local to you, I'm happy to hear about the mundane or personal as much as the natural wonders or tourist traps, also if you'd recommend any travel guides or websites I'd be happy to check them out, at present I've got an eye witness USA travel guide, its got a lot of pictures and seems to be as good as the lonely planet guide which looked like it was just listings and listings of accomodation.

    I've also got a huge ass Lonely Planet book called Great Adventures which I'm sure does feature the US but I've not had the chance to read it.

    Alternatively if you're not from the US, for instance if you're Canadian, I'm open to persuasion as to why I should visit your country instead, maybe not this year but go ahead and tell me why it should be something I do in 2014.
    Trying to travel North America E-W by country is going to net you mostly farmland for your time investment.

    It'd be smarter to do a West coast trip one year (Canada, USA, Mexico) and then an East coast trip (Canada, USA, islands) the other year. Most of the Canadian stuff worth seeing is close to the US border, and you can day trip into Mexico from San Diego.

    West Coast:
    Fly to Seattle; rent a car.

    • Seattle, WA
    • Vancouver, BC
    • Banff, AB (climb or ski Rockies by day and chill in the hot springs by night; hope for northern lights)
    • Canmore, AB
    • Yellowstone, MT
    • Moab, UT
    • Grand Canyon, AZ
    • Sedona, AZ
    • Las Vegas, NV
    • San Diego, CA
    • Tijuana, Mexico
    • Los Angeles, CA
    • San Fransisco, CA
    • Lake Tahoe, CA
    • Portland, OR
    • Seattle, WA


    That's only 7274 km and 74 hours of driving, which is a lot better than trying to do E-W by country for North America. Here's a route I've Google Mapped out.

    Another way to do it is to pick a great city or specific region you're interested in, and do that for 4 days. There's more than 4 days in any great city. I have a feeling you might be an East Coast type of guy, Boston or Philadelphia or... New York.

    Yes... Pick a coast... Or maybe half the time spent on the west coast.. La, sf, Seattle. Portland and Vancouver bc. Then fly into ny and explore it and the surrounding cities...Niagra falls etc before flying back home.

    I haven't been this excited since Mr. Smith Goes to Washington!

    You know, if Lark wanted, he could host meetups all across the US for forum members.

    I could hang out at niagra falls and then show you all the beautiful rusted out remains of Buffalo.

    I know MSP is on the list, we can drive down to Chicago too. In US terms it's just a short drive (of 6-8 hours).
    Holy shit! That's like the entire day!

    Yeah, I only thought about the possibility of people giving me a misdirection after posting this.

    For my part I think that Uber would love to visit Tigers Bay or Shankill Rd
