    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    The first day is the biggest problem. LA to SF via the coast is a pretty solid 2 day drive. Its really not a drive you should try to do in a single day.

    SF to Redding is an easy drive, but I'd skip Sacramento and just focus on SF, and all of the rest of your drives are quite easy, so you should be able to make adjustments to give you enough time for the LA-SF drive.

    One other thing to worry about is rental car. Most companies will not allow you to rent a car in the US and drop it off in Canada, and the few that do will charge a substantial fee. You may be better off driving to Seattle and then taking a train or bus onto vancouver.
