Hi, first time poster. I like taking solo roadtrips.
In Summer 04, I flew into Vegas, drove to LA, then from LA I drove up Highway one the entire way to SF, then to Yosemite, over the Sierra Nevadas, down south to Death Valley and back to Vegas. It took me a month. I stayed in fancy hotels, on friends' couches, and some nights, I slept in my car.
Anyway, I'd like to take another roadtrip, but I won't have as much time. One week or two weeks at most. I haven't really been to Oregon or Northern California.
My plan is to fly into Seattle or Portland, and drive to SF along the coast, and leave from there. Probably Portland just because I don't have the time. How much time do I need? Should I just do Oregon and a round trip? Is October too cold?
I love hiking and taking pictures, but nothing too strenuous. I also like rafting, but it might be too late.
Sorry if this is a commonly asked question. Any other tips or links?
