USA Road Trip
4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I'm a 27yr old bloke from Australia looking at doing my first trip to America. I'm keen to do a road trip, and am planning on the West Coast. I have some friends in Phoenix AZ that I want to spend some time with, and I'd like to be able to socialize and meet people as I go. I've mapped out generally how I'd like to go about the trip.
I'm just not sure how long I should be spending in each area, or if there's anything I should skip/add. This is what I've got:
>Phoenix for a couple days with friends
>Fly to San Diego to start the road trip, to save driving the shit trip through the desert.
>Day trip to Mexico to start things off
>LA for 3 nights
>Santa Barbara 1 night
>Big Sur 1 night
>Santa Cruz 1 night
>San Francisco 3 nights
>Yosemite National Park 2 nights
>Lone Pine 1 night
>Las Vegas 2 nights
Then maybe somehow check out the Grand Canyon while headed back to Phoenix for a few nights with friends to finish off the trip.
All up about a 3 week trip. Not sure if I should try for a bit longer, if I'm not spending enough time in each place?
Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥
Please check the /trv/ sticky before asking questions. It's filled with links to great resources, many of them specific to Japan travel.

For those of you who aren't hopeless autists, what is the attitude/impression you've gotten from whores about how they perceive you, the man paying to fuck them? Do you get a bunch of fake icing that they're into you but notice little looks and crumplings of their noses revealing their actually revulsed or disgusted? Or is it as matter-of-fact as getting a massage or something but with fucking instead of a back rub?
Asking because -strongly- considering trip to Amsterdam/FKK Germany/Thailand and want to know. Have never fucked a whore before, no idea what to expect. Also which is best and how are the girls different?
Friend of a friend went in Amsterdam after getting high, beta guy kinda aspie, said room was dirty, big thug stood guard outside, girl was older than she initially looked, ordered him around, laid down the law about what he couldn't do, he couldn't get hard as a result. Sounded horrible.
arriving 72 minutes before departure. Norwegian.

Some boring airport questions coming up.
So arriving at Manchester ( UK ) airport on a weekday lunchtime in January by train. With 72 minutes before boarding for a European flight with Norwegian and only hand luggage.
I've never waited more than 30 minutes through security at any airport, but I've never been by Manchester before. So my questions are in two parts.
Norwegian say that the boarding gate closes 30 minutes(!!!) before departure, which to me is rather extreme. Can I assume this is not actually the case and that I could quite easily roll up 15 minutes before departure and just join the end of the queue? How strictly is this enforced? Will they give me a last call if I am held up for whatever reason?
Security shouldn't take more than 30 minutes at this time of year and day right? Outside of school holiday season???
And finally. Norwegian say that you can do online checkin and they'll send you an SMS with your boarding pass 2 hours before departure which you can use on your phone, and that it's not possible to do like Ryanair and print your boarding pass out at home ( which would be much easier ). Has anybody used this system, does it work? Do I need mobile data for this?
Anyway what are my chances, unnecessarily long and stupid post. Sorry.
