I have a trip planned with two friends. I am visiting family in Louisiana for 3 days then flying up to Los Angeles for 4 days. I will then rent a car and drive to San Francisco along the cost road which looks fairly straight forward. I shall then be spending a further 4 days in San Francisco.
Here is where i need your help and advice. So far i have planned my drive from San Francisco to Las Vegas as follows
Pick up Crysler 300c at 08.00 on Monday 11th October 2010 from San Francisco.
Drive to Lake Tahoe and stay the night. Hopefully arrive in good time to explore the surroundings.
Leave lake Tahoe and drive to Mammoth Lakes then onto Bishop for a over night stay.
Drive from Bishop through Death valley onto Las Vegas. (time permitting visiting hoover dam?). Arrive in Las Vegas for 17.00
I realise this is a short time and we will not have much time to explore but we can only spare 2 nights/ 3 days for the journey. How does this trip sound? The three of us can share the driving. Also any interesting stop offs on the way?
The hire car will have sat nav but obviously i will also use a map. Can anyone recommend a good map and where i would purchase one.
