Hi and thanks for taking the time to look at my post.
I will try and make this as painless as possible so here goes.... myself and my girlfriend who are both from the UK (Nottingham to be precise) are keen to return the US for a road trip in May 2013 having exhausted European destinations. We have both previously been to the US on a few occasions and really enjoyed it so we are keen to get a road trip sorted.
We plan to do the West/Mid-West area specifically:
Salt Lake City
Death Valley / Yosemite
Its give or take 4200 miles and we have a month set aside. There are 2 of us driving so we have worked out an average of about 300 miles or so a day between 2 drivers.
We have some overnight stops and some smaller towns on route but given the above is there anything that is a must see that is close or not too far from our intended route, or if someone has any other proposed route that would be good to hear about to, it would have to include SF, LV, Mt Rushmore, Grand Canyon and Yellowstone and Yosemite.
Also finally we plan to hire a mid size car something like either a Chevy Cobalt or Ford Focus (both around 2LT Gas auto's) etc. Any ideas on the sort of expected combined fuel consumption for these vehicles, I thought maybe around 28-32mpg combined.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
