When posting, especially when starting a new thread, please use a title that explains your post or thread, e.g. don't put "Help please!" when you could put "Where can I find a camp site near Kending?"
Please check your spelling, because someone may do a text search for your information, e.g. if someone searches for information on Xizhi and you have spelled it She Jher, they won't find it. Someone spelled camping as "campin" without a g at the end - again, it can't be found by a text search. For place names in Taiwan, please try to use Hanyu Pinyin as default, as that is the spelling most people know.
Please place links in your posts to sources of information. If you don't know how to hotlink text, click on the BBCode tips link in my signature to find out.
If you find a thread that is so hopelessly out of date that it couldn't be of use to anyone, please send the moderator a private message (with the URL of the thread)
If you spot two or more threads that you think could be merged, again, alert the moderator

United does direct flights from SFO to TPE now too!

I did a drive away many years ago. One difficulty is that there are usually time restrictions which don't allow for a leisurely drive across the continent.
If you do decide to camp (either tent or RV) make sure that you book your reservations early. Many camping spots fill up quickly with regular annual visitors. Make sure you check both state and county parks in addition to national parks along the way.

Even standard RV rentals....returning to the same point of pick-up....are atrociously expensive. We looked into it last summer.
Sometimes you can get car rental deals when dropping off at different locations, for example from NY to Fla, during certain seasons, but from east to west coast I haven't heard of those types of deals.
Unfortunately, train travel for those types of distances can be pricey too. I hope you find a solution....this is a tough one!
