I am really enjoying myself reading all these super-knowledgeable posts. So I decided to tap into the expertise. So thanks in advance for any advice!
We are planning a 4-week RV-trip with our infant son in mid-September to mid-October. The (most probable) itinirary is something like below. We know San Francisco well, so we don't plan to stay there long, and I am aware that we are "skipping" Lake Tahoe, Zion NP, Bryce Canyon, Flagstaff, Phoenix and LA (just to name a few). But we want to take our time to hike a bit and take photos and not necessarily cover every possible thing - even if it means missing out on some spectacular stuff.
So the question is: Is this itinirary realistic? Any concerns? Anything we missed along the route?
The one thing I am most concerned about is the really long haul from Oatman, AZ to Sequoia. We are 3 drivers, so no problem there, but with the baby we need to stop every two hours or so, to get him out of the child seat and feed him. So that will eat up a lot of time.
