Thanks very much for the offer Loki, are you within reach of Talladega or Bankhead National Forests? It's certainly a lovely place to hike that I could consider going to, Talladega in particular sounds like it offers more seclusion.

Good advice Kreuger, I was wondering about storage capacity on my camera memory card, but hadn't thought of uploading as I go - I may very well do that! Thanks!

Hey Swede, that's really kind of you! I wouldn't be staying for a long time, maybe up to 5 days? I might do some diving to progress my PADI qualifications, but it's unlikely to take a vast amount of time. Could you recommend any campsites or beaches where camping is allowed, from your own experience? I wouldn't want to take you out of work, so I'm happy to hang out in the evenings when you're finished and explore/dive by myself during the day.

Thanks to everyone I haven't quoted who've offered advice as well. Anyone more towards the New Mexico/Arizona/California way who can offer advice on places to go and things to see, if not a floor or a sofa for the night?

@Sethis :
Those places are way south of me. Like 4-5hrs of driving. I'm way out of the way, but if you need a place to crash that bad, your welcome to it.

You could always try to follow old Route 66 that will take you from Florida to California.

In Louisiana check out New Orleans. Houma is good for swamps and those things.

Texas you will check Corpus Cristy. Port aranas is a cool Port town.

Nevada to check out Red Rock that is just outside Las Vegas. It is a cool red rock formation great for hiking. The Grand Canyon if your into that.

California- Calico Ghost town is a cool western mining town. Other than that there is not much worth seeing from the Nevada or Arizona boarder until you get closer to San Diego or Los Angeles county. San Bernardino county does not have much in it. Which is of course where I live.

I may have a couch you can crash on for a night depending on when you get near California or put you up for a night in the tepee motel here in Rialto.

Hey Morfang, thanks very much for the offer and reply! I'll look into the places you mentioned and see which ones interest me. You do of course live very close to San Bernardino National Forest which could easily make it onto my list of hiking destinations. That far over to the west is liable to be maybe January time? Just so you have a rough timeframe.

You should read up as much as possible on the laws. You are going to get shit about them all the way across the country.

I will check into possible things to do around here in January as well. I talked it over with the fiance and when ever you get out this way you have a place a stay while your in the area. It may be a couch if my kids are here or a bed if they are staying with my ex. Also me and my lady are both chefs so bring your appetite you will be feed.

Hey @morfangdakka , I used to live "up the hill" from you. Right over the Cajon Pass in Victorville.

That's ominous and sort of Hannibal Lecter sounding!
