Grand Southern NY-LA 7th DEC 2012...

21 Sep 2012 MrMrsFranks asked


Hey everyone!
My husband and I are really looking forward to this adventure!
Just a shout out to anybody else that is on the tour...we are from Perth, Australia.

Quick question... what is recommended to pack in respect to clothes/shoes as we are travelling quite a fair bit around the USA and the weather can change so dramatically from one city to the next. Neither of us have seen snow before and can't even start to imagine how cold it could get.

Any help is appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    My friend and I are also from Perth! :)
    I haven’t been to the US before but having spent a lot of time in Europe around Winter time, I would suggest layers! Layering your clothes is the best way to keep warm! so for us we are taking comfortable boots, jeans, tops, water proof jacket etc. However we were advised to just buy when we get there as shopping is supposed to be cheaper, so you may be able to pick some things up along your travels :)
