How does one 24 yr old fresh out of college make money while traveling? Starting in New York. Teaching English?

I am terrified to travel. Trying to overcome some of the most basic of challenges is intimidating such as where do I eat, where do I sleep, how do I make money all come to mind. I figure I keep a bag of rice with some peanut butter and oats on me for food. I'm thinking a tent for a place to sleep and panhandling if I wind up screwing this up too bad. I would day labor no problem if it comes down to it, wondering if anyone has any experience with this? I keep trying to find travel companions, but everyone keeps falling through.

I'm about to graduate from college in New York state. I kind of wanted to travel around Asia and Europe, but I don't have money and think I would prefer a first trip to be in the US. I keep getting told this is the best chance I have to travel at this point in my life before I get tied down. So how do I make money? I thought about working on websites while traveling, but I figure I would spend time traveling from New York down the Appalachian trail and then ending up some place down south, maybe making my way across Texas and up towards Oregon.
I've been trying to work up the nerve to do this, and with a thousand terrible 'what ifs' floating through my head, I could really use some support.
