Hello all! a mate and i are planning our 1st trip to the US/Canada from mid October to mid November. during this time we are planning a road trip from Vancouver to LA and hoping to spend about 10 days in total. I have done some research on way route and have come up with a initial travel map (link attached). Now we understand its coming into winter so I have a feeling we may miss out on all the places we want to visit and routes we wish to take? places we want to see thus far - Crater Lake, Red Woods National Park, Yosemite, Mt Hood and possible Lake Quinault (not in that particular order). At this stage we are wanting to hire a small camper van for two people that caters for one way trips. at this stage the Wicked campers are the only ones I found that can and a reasonably priced. We are open to any other suggestions here in regards to company's or methods?
As this is our 1st international road trip, any advice or tips would be greatly appreciated on how to travel, where to stay and what we can/cant/should see. we are both very interested in nature, hiking, walking, history, etc. and not so much major cities although we understand we must go through some on our journey.
