I'm planning a last minute road trip and would love some advice on my route!
1. My main goal is having a scenic drive rather than hanging out in the cities (besides Portland, really looking forward to a weekend there). Looking to have a lot of alone time in a car to think about life lol. Don't mind long stretches of driving with relatively short stops along the way to rest and carry on.
2. I've already done the PCH drive from LA to San Fran, so skipping it and taking the 5 so I can focus on the scenic routes from San Fran to Vancouver
3. I've picked the city stops based on friends I have where I can stay the night. Trying to make the trip as inexpensive as possible!
4. I have a couple extra days I could throw in if my timing is too tight, happy to camp somewhere along the way for a night here or there to break up long drives.
