Why not? Don't believe all the rubbish you read on this site about how dangerous Ukraine is. I have just spent one month there and I have never been hassled or threatened. Where I stayed in my wifes house in Vinnitsa I regularly went out alone to do the shopping or out in my car with simply some basic russian. The crimea was fine. Basically its just like being in any other European country. Here where I work in Plymouth UK. I could take you to bad places where you could get in trouble, but like most people I stay away from them, the same can be said for any city/town across the world.
Don't let the idiots who talk about guns and pepper spray put you off. Ukrainians/Russian people are the nicest and friendliest you will meet.
Don't beleive the hype. Get your maps out and have a great road trip.
