About

RoadTrip America is a 10,000 mile expedition that will take us across 15 states. Our starting point is Boston, MA, from there we shall travel the entire length of the East coast then travel west across the country to the West coast & California. Here is our final state and the only one on the West coast we shall visit. For a detailed view of the trip there is a map below.

 The aim of the trip is to visit as many monuments/national icons as we can in each of the states we enter. We are going to be shooting a sequence of videos to create a film of the trip as well as capturing many photos of places such as Yellowstone National Park, Grand Canyon, Key West and New York to name just a few.

The original trip which was planned over the past year and was meant to be undertaken by a company of 3. However due to personal circumstances which were not expected our company is now down to just 2 and we already have all we need booked. Pledges will therefore be used to be our third person, completing his share in the trip and allowing us to visit all the national parks, iconic monuments, as well as helping us eat and drive the 10,000 miles. 

RoadTrip America is a dream adventure for us and to be able to complete it and share it with the supporters who kindly donate to our cause would be amazing. The more you donate the more we can give back with quality production of videos and photography. 

Risks and challenges

With a road trip there aren't too many challenges and risks. The key one would be to preferably make it back in one piece, although we will be staying in many motels and hostels so who knows what lies in some of those places.

Other main challenges for us will be weather orientated. Photos of beautiful landscapes and iconic scenes don't usually look great in the rain as they do in sunshine. If we can manage to get a little more sunshine than rain we'll be very happy, as will you, the backers, as the returning photos will be far nicer to view.

The final challenge we face is keeping the car fuel tank full and not get lost. There will be many parts of the journey where we won't know where we are or where the nearest "gas station" is. We will be using one of those paper map things... not a GPS/Sat Nav so there may be some issues at times.
