Thanks for this great site, It has been a great help to plan our road trip.
I'm from Australia and our family of 5 are doing the Trek on 1/25/2010 to LA,LV,SF,LA.
Unfortunately we are not going through Death Valley onto Yosemite as roads will be closed and there will be to many detours.
I'm just asking where is the best place to stay as an overnighter somewhere in between LV & SF somewhere around Bakersfield as an idea.
Also we need somewhere between SF & LA say around San luis Obispo.
We require accomodation Hotel.
Thanks for your help.
Looking forward to the trip as this is our first roadtrip in the USA
