Did I find the right forum? I'm planning a ride around North America for six months and would like to know good, safe places to stay that allow for truly local experiences--hostels, campgrounds, homes . . . . As a female traveling alone, I want to be especially careful. I'll be starting the trip in a couple of weeks, from northern California, and most likely working my way south and east, then north up the east coast and into eastern Canada, then down into the Midwest, and then to the Pacific Northwest. I'm keeping a notebook organized by state and province, so I can refer to it as I discover where I'm going. Thanks in advance for any assistance!
