Hi, I'm new to the site, found it will trying to plan a trip from San Francisco to Seattle.
I read RogerM's excellent review of a similar trip, but still have questions.
Plan on heading out of San Francisco on June 8TH and heading up the Pacific Highway, eventually arriving Seattle.
We will be traveling in two 31' C class RV's with my adult kids and 4 grand kids, ranging from 8 to 16. Renting from Adventure Touring, does anyone have any experience with this company?
As we are traveling from Florida, we are intending to rent for 14 days, and fit in as much as possible, tagging on a couple of days in hotels at start and end of our trip..
Would like some advice on how to break up the trip, where to overnight, places that are a must see etc.
Would like to spend a couple of days in either Napa/Sonoma and then rejoin Highway 1. Is this recommended. and if so where?
Would like some suggestions to interest the kids, like the Evergreen Aircraft and Space Museum which houses the Spruce Goose, 5 miles west of McMinnville
After Mcminnville, we considered heading north on Highway 5 to include either the Columbia River Gorge Road from Vancouver, WA on the north of the river, or the Mt Hood - Columbia river Gorge Loop south of the Columbia River from Portland. Any advice?
Also, we had considered Mount St Helens/Mount Rainier, the Olympic Loop including the coastal route 112 to Neah Bay or the North Cascades Loop from Seattle.
Obviously I realize we can't do them all, so which do I leave out?
Would welcome all the input possible, to make this a memorable trip.
