This is my first message on this forum: i discovered it some days ago, it's really nice and full of helpful tips... so let's start with the questions!
Start: Denver, Sep. 15th, h. 22.00
End: San Francisco, Oct. 3rd, h. 20.00
Me and wife only.
I'd like to drive through I-70, then I-15 to Las Vegas, then San Francisco.
The main goal of the trip is to visit some National Parks along the road, a brief stop in Las Vegas, some of the West Coast below San Francisco (Monterey etc.), Yosemite and, of course, San Francisco (a couple of days).
I believe i have fairly enough time to visit all of the targets above: am i right?
Considering that i'm travelling through the Rockies in mid September, is there any risk regarding snow or bad weather? Should i consider snow chains or a particular kind of vehicle?
I'm about to rent a Dodge Caliber: do you think it's a good choice for that kind of trip? I found it at www.autoeurope.it, the price seems to be really good to me (650$ ca.).
That's all... for now :)
