    Lifey, can't help you with insurance, but about currency issues, have you checked Revolut or Wise? Both offer a convenient way to pay in any currency for a very small fee (nothing compared to the...

    @Dave, thank you very much! I did another, though shorter, roadtrip in the US a couple of years ago. I was much better prepared having learned a lot with the first one. Maybe I'll write about it if I...
  4. Final part

    My apologies once again, but life has been extremely busy (and will continue to be so in the near future). This week, though, I've managed to find some time to finish the write-up. I hope you enjoy...

    @glc, yep, yes, it was!

    @AZBuck, I guess I went a bit overboard with the pictures. Looking at it now, I could have trimmed a few of them. I think I wanted to make up for the few pictures I took...
  6. Second part (subpart 2)

    Day 12

    Kalaloch Campground is right next to a beach, which was the perfect place for a walk after the morning routine. It was lovely, but a bit windy, as the trees can attest.

  7. Second part (subpart 1)

    My objective was to write one day of trip per day. Obviously, that didn't happen, due to work and life getting in the way. I also didn't foresee that the second part would turn out to be much longer...

    @landmariner, I'm really glad you've liked it. It must be exciting knowing that "soon enough" you'll be able to hit the road!

    Re car rental, it's one that has recently filed for bankruptcy. I...

    @Southwest Dave, thank you! I'm glad you've enjoyed it so far. We were perusing our old photos, reminiscing about the trip. I thought I should write and document it, as some details get forgotten...
  10. 3-week West Coast (CA, OR, WA) roadtrip, from LA to Seattle and back.

    So, a long time ago, I asked RTA for help in planning my roadtrip in the US. I ended getting some amazing advice and promised to return and write a report. Well, I think I've taken the saying "better...

    I decided to post the new plan in a separate post for clarity. The itinerary with stops (not all, but most) during day is still here. I guess I have included many of your suggestions, such as staying...

    Finally, we ended up scratching Disneyland. But we will indeed stay the first night in LA and pick the car just on the following day.



    Well, we kind of agree that we'll try to do a lot....

    Thanks for looking over the plan! Yes, I figured it was a bit of stretch driving much after the flight. However, I should have mentioned that I was thinking of something like Bakersfield rather than...

    Most definitely! It also seems a great way to log the trip - by this I mean, the "one person telling others" format, in contrast with a plain log - and at the same time, create content/info for...

    After thinking, discussing and reviewing with my SO, we are now leaning towards the "loop" trip. Given that it changes the route and times spent at each place a bit, I would ask you for some...

    I think the 13 hours <-> 40 minutes a day is not the correct way to see it, since there are days with no driving. Anyhow, I've reviewed the "loop" plan and it seems feasible. It just creates three...

    Hi Southwest Dave! Thank you, the current plan is the result of endless iterations and alternative plans over the last month.
