My girlfriend and I (both in 20s) are currently travelling the world and have a stop in San Francisco coming up in June. We originally planned just to see the city and move on but after a bit of google-ing we stumbled across this (excellent) site and have got very excited about the idea of a road trip.
We're on a fairly tight budget so are thinking of hiring a camper van (possibly through Escape Campers) to save on accommodation costs. Plus it sounds a lot of fun. We were just wondering if anybody had any advice on helping us decide the route.
As mentioned, our flight is in and out of San Francisco so we're looking at doing a loop. We're not restricted by the length of time we have, but of course time is money. Our flight from San Francisco is actually to Las Vegas so this road trip is just about exploring Cali (although we are considering hiring a camper again for Vegas, Grand Canyon, Death Valley). After reading several posts on the forum and the suggested routes section we have come up with a list of possible destinations:
Sequoia National Forest
Kings Canyon NP
Ideally, we're looking for advice on places to stop over (one's we've missed from the list perhaps?) - particularly for the Big Sur to Sequoia and Yosemite NP to San Fran legs, how long this trip might take, or any other advice to help us on our way. Plus if anyone has had any experience with Escape Campers or other similar companies we would love to hear from you.
Thank you very much for reading!
