15You will need to budget for campground fees. Except in some public lands, mostly in the west, you are not going to find free camping.
You will need passports to return to the US from Canada. Technically, you can enter Canada without a passport, if you have a drivers license & proof of citizenship, but in reality, you may be denied entry as you will not be able to re-enter the US without a passport.

19Driving 8 a days on Interstates? Ughh, what will you see? Where will you stay in major cities? The eastern seaboard is rather congested. What about bears in the wilderness, cold nights in the mountains, and heavy rains and heat in the summer?
A dumb pipe dream if you ask me. If anything, just drive to Alaska and back.

22You should also have a "Plan B" when you arrive in Key West and discover that there are no "legal," conventional campgrounds available. The closest one I can think of is the one at Bahia Honda State Park. Be advised that wild camping will put you in the Monroe County Jail. Reservations are a very good idea.
Google shows many “camp grounds,” “trailer parks,” “RV parks” etc. in the Keys. I don’t believe that simple ground campers are permitted to “camp” at many of them. Understand that most Keys residents as well as the sheriff regard all campers as potential burglars.
