Travelling to the USA in October this year for an east coast road trip with an American mate.

Travelling to the USA in October this year for an east coast road trip with an American mate. Starting in Maryland, doing a circuit inland and back around along the coast. We plan to camp where ever possible, cook our own meals and use gym memberships to use their showers. Really pumped for the trip and I think we got most of the important stuff covered. Do any anons have tips about camping in the us? Is it pretty straight forward just to peg up some tents behind a car in national parks or are there hoops to jump through or precautions to take?

    Is this a fucking troll? Who the fuck picked out that route? Philadelphia, Buffalo,Columbus, Cincinnati, Louisville, Indianapolis, Detroit, Cleveland. That's like a "worst of" the US national tour. The good news is that you haven't booked any lodging and it's not too late to completely change that route.

    You literally cannot camp in any of those cities or you will be ticketed for vagrancy or murdered in your sleep, or both.

    If you want to camp, fly out to Utah. You can camp on any BLM property for 2 weeks for free without a permit. The money you save will pay for your flights. You could do Bryce, Zion, Cedar Breaks, Arches, Moab, Escalante, Vegas, The Grand Canyon. Much better roadtrip. And no one will kill you while you sleep.

      >a list of cities

      We're not actually camping in the cities, that would invite stab wounds and the trip is on the east coast starting Maryland as the guy with the car lives there.
      The main places I wanted to see/hang out in were the Appalachians (so we'll be heading a bit further south than indicated) and the state of Maine, figure might as well check out the major cities in-between along the way.

    Camping in Cleveland, Rochester and Chicago in October is lovely. There are usually decent accommodations downtown after 9 p.m.

    not sure how much public land is on the East coast but there's a lot out West. I would reconsider the West coast instead. you don't want to be camping on private land and get shot.

      he explicitly mentions he is thinking of camping in national parks, so that is public land

        You have to pay to camp in most National Parks. They aren't always cheap on the east coast.

    wtf is this?

    no no no this is literally the dumbest plan I've ever seen. Go to Massachusetts first, visit Salem before Halloween day, see around Boston, then go up to Vermont and enjoy nature, a fun autumn activity is hay rides and pumpkin picking, apple orchards are a thing to visit too, stay in a nice cabin. see niagara falls, head to canada for good views if you want. pop down to nyc for two or three days, I swear to god no more than that, you can see eveything cool in that time. then get the fuck out, the rest is worthless, boring, unsafe. fuck dc, fuck philly fuck baltimore, fuck anything further south or west on this map.

    Based on anons comments, route like this would be less retarded? Cut out Chicago and Detroit entirely.

      Why are you afraid to go to Canada? Montreal and Toronto are sitting right there and you want to go to Appalachia? Are you nuts?

      Believe me once you’ve gone through New England Maine Acadia all that you’ll have had plenty enough of forests.

      Don’t go lower than Washington DC. All the good stuff is north of there. NYC Boston... Montreal Toronto...

        The guy driving works a job that's makes it difficult to cross the border without having to file a stack of paperwork, so we're dancing around the border unfortunately.

          If I can get him to suck up the pain of doing the paperwork and dropping the Appalachians, the route would be looking more like this

            Really no reason to go to Appalachia at all. There are woods all over the place. Ifmyoungonto New England you will see more woods than you can imagine. New England in the fall is especially pretty.

            Make sure you eat some lobster rolls up in Maine

              Appalachians are way different from New England forests. If you're not particularly interested in the outdoors then sure cut it out of the trip but Appalachians and New England are pretty different environments not just "forest"

        Nah. There are two cool areas in Baltimore where a middle class white person can go get a meal and not get murdered, they are Federal Hill and Canton. But if you take a wrong turn, yea you might get murdered.

      You stopping at New River Gorge? Looks like you are based on your route, but you definitely should if that isn't already part of the plan. I'd also personally pick Philadelphia or D.C. over Baltimore. All them are shitholes, but Philly and D.C. have loads of cool shit to do for travelers. Plus, if you do Philly, you can stop by Gettysburg on your way down to the Appalachians, which is a great place to hit in the fall. There are also loads of quality haunted attractions in the area if you like those. Though, seeing as you plan to start in Maryland, that stuff may not be applicable.

        I'll put those on the list. The itinerary is pretty loose so plenty of room for changes.

        If you need places to camp along the highways there’s something called KOA. Check out their website. They have campgrounds all over America. For a small fee you get a spot to pitch your tent and a picnic table. They also have showers, toilets and stuff like in a big hostel.

        Thanks anon, that's really helpful.

        I wouldn't do that trip even if it were free

        What's wrong with it now?

    To camp in a national park you have to comply with the rules. You go into the campground, find a lot, and you pay the fee. It’s not just pulling up anywhere and pitching a tent.

    Depending on the season it can be impossible to get an open spot but you should be ok in October. For state parks check their rules but it’ll likely be similar, camping in designated spots.

      We've cut more off the trip to try and tighten it up a so we have time to stop and smell the roses.

        Looks good.

        Instead of driving through Connecticut you could go through Long Island and see the Hamptons or the north fork. Should be able to take a ferry from ther into Connecticut or Rhode Island.
