New member, and not sure it this should be a separate thread - but so much work was put into Janet's trip it seems best to keep it linked.
Whilst British, we are lucky enough to be in St. Petersburg now will not return to the UK till early December. As we are now both recently retired, we want to start seeing a lot more of the US and thought we would start with Las Vegas and a drive around for 10 - 14 days. I found your excellant site, and after working my way (briefly) through Janet's plan and all that was put into it, thought we could capitalize on what had been posted by flying into SF from Tampa on about the 1st. November and then returning from Las Vegas on about the 14th. instead of a return LV trip. (We are due in Pensacola for Thanksgiving, so I thought about drifting the dates back - but it looks an awfull long drive from LV with not much to see - true??)
Anyway, my immediate questions are:
1) To you well informed locals, will the time of year - the first two week of November - mean any driving problems over the passes and / or will some places be closed?
2) Which would be the bits to cut out or speed up to try and keep it to two week? We enjoy History, especially with narrated tours, along with scenic views!
3) Janet, when are you likely to post your first thoughts on your trip?
Any advice, as always, will be much apprectiated,
Thanks in advance,
