I have lived in NJ (currently living in NYC) for several years and I can confirm that it's not legal to pump your own gas. Pull your car at the gas station and someone will attend to you.

Yes, anyone legally in the US can buy and register a car. I have several European and Australian friends that own and keep motorhomes here even though they are not citizens. Some Canadians do the same thing. The only time Canadians get in trouble is if they try to take the vehicle across the Canadian border. Canada gets on their case and forces them to ...

I've traveled a lot with dogs, but since every dog is different you have to know how well his bladder holds. Generally they adapt to whatever you do, 8 hours shouldn't be too crazy.

Unlikely to get insurance. You are most likely going to take more than a $1000 dollar hit when you buy a car, what if it breaks down? Think about: Who is going to buy this car, how long will it take to find a buyer? You may need to file taxes. Lastly there is significant paperwork for selling a car, which means DMV visits. It may be cheaper to rent...

There's no legal reason a driver and/or guide are required. But, it's advisable. Mongolia is empty. The size of western Europe, and then some, with 1-2 million people living outside of the capital, you're likely to find absolutely nothing, if you go for a long drive. A guide will know where to go and how to get there. But, will also be able to talk to the ...
