Hellooo across the ocean :)
First i'd like to say that this site is awesome!! :) Exactly what i need.
Since this is my first post on this forum, i'll introduce myself. My name is Miha and i come from Slovenia. It's in Europe... :) Yes we have internet in our little country and no we are not in a war and poverty :P
I just graduated from college (Electrical Automation) and now i have more free time for planing my road trip on the West coast next summer. Yes it's early planning :) but as you say "early bird catches the worm" i want to book a plane, car, hotels, camps... this year and until then i would like to know everything about my route.
I have put together a route and places we would like to see and for now i would just like some coments about it.
I don't know how many people we will be, but one car will be enough. We'll go for 3 weeks in the end of july/beginning of august 2011. There are many places we would like to see (SF, Yosemite, Sequoia, LA, Calico, Vegas, Death valley, Hoover dam, Grand canion, R66, Antelope canion, Navaho NM, Monument valey, Arches NP, Bryce canyon, Zion, Lake Tahoe...). Some places are marked on map below. Route between them is made my google:
What do you think?
I wont ask those standard questions that has been answered a gazillion times on this forum. At least not now :)
For now i would like to know if google's route is ok?
And what interesting is to see on route from Arches NP/Zion NP to SF? That part of my route is quite empty :) Would it be beter if we go throu Salt Lake City and on I-80 to SF?
We are planning to land in SF and then stay a few days somewhere by the beach. Relaxing :). Don't know where exactly yet. Sugestions? We will rent a car when we'll leave SF so it has to be in a "normal taxi price area" :)
Then the road trip starts :) Camping will be the first option and then motels/hotels where the weather will be too cruel for camping (heat, cold?, rain...) We are planning to stay in LV for 2 days and maybe in Grand canyon vilage for 2 days. In other places only for a day.
Ok, that is enough for now :)
Thanx for reading and maybe answering :)
And sorry for typos... Well... they're not typos... it's my english... :D
Have a nice day/night.
