This is a question Road Trip

Gather round the fire and share stories of epic travels. Remember this is about the voyage, not what happened when you got there. Any of that shite and you're going in the fire.

Public transport from LA to Miami
I was working in LA, standard youth hostel stuff, when an old workmate phoned me up and offered me a cushy job in Miami. Not being the biggest fan of my current workplace, the Venice Beach Cotel, it was an easy choice. The only hurdles in my way were the 2,300 mile journey, I needed to be there in five days, and I couldn't afford to fly.
So I boarded the Greyhound bus somewhere in downtown LA, and four days rolled off somewhere in downtown Miami.
If people ask I say I've been to Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, but essentially I drove through them on a bus silver bus, stuffing my face with taco bell, and occasionally grabbing a few hours sleep in some dodgy bus station.
By the time we arrived in Orlando three days later, having not slept or washed, people were avoiding sitting next to me due to my rather poor personal hygiene. To say I was lifting a bit would be an understatement, having lived on a sweaty bus driving through Southern America in the middle of June.... When we finally pulled into Miami I took a cab straight to the beach and jumped in the sea, then slept in what seemed like the best bed of all time!
I would not recommend it to anyone, at least fly some of the way!!
