Hi from Russia!
« on: September 30, 2020, 12:55:38 PM »

Hello everyone,

I'm a British expat in Russia who has decided, when the COVID pandemic is finally over, to realise a life long dream: a road trip through the USA, from one coast to another.
However, I don't really have experience in that kind of trip (I'm usually the type to stay in a city and walk/use public transportation), and would thus like to learn more about roads and driving in that country, about the most memorable routes I should follow and automotive tourism in America in general.
And it looks like I'm in the right place!

Thanks in advance for having me over, and have a nice day!

Welcome from Florida! Take some time before deciding where you’d like to drive to first.

Thanks to all of you! Well, at least, time to think about what to do isn't something I lack, with all of these travel restrictions...

Welcome to AARoads. I see you're from Saratov, near where my ancestors spent some time (1770s to 1900), the Wolgadeutsche.

Welcome.  I'm from NY, but lived in Rostov-na-Donu and Volgograd for a while.
