    For me it depends on the vehicle. When I was driving trucks, my company capped us at 10 on/10 off. I could usually get about 600 miles in that time, mostly highway miles.

    On my motorcycle, I tend...

    Hello Andy! And welcome!

    I have driven the I-5 corridor between Seattle and Los Angeles more time then I can count, along with every possible route north/south off I-5. Your first problem is that...

    I like to ask locals. :) There is a historic Grist Mill near about 50 miles away with a cool covered bridge next to it that I would never have known about if I had never asked the guy at the nearest...

    Thanks for the idea. I didn't think of heading down to Winnemucca. That's a pretty fun drive and could loop me back up into Oregon through Lakeview and Klamath Falls.

    I'll probably end up camping...

    That was exactly my train of thought also. The distance they're traveling and the short amount of time makes a car the better choice.

    Olympia can be a miss unless you want to stop by the old Olympia Brewery at Tumwater Falls. There is a nice little park there with a path that goes up one side of the river and down the other.

    Amazing! Australia outback has been on my bucket list for years. Now that I'm retired, it's becoming more possible. Perhaps 2016 will be the magic year.

    I personally would stay in San Antonio only for a single day. You can see the entirety of the Alamo in about an hour. The River Walk is fun, but that's only another hour or so, maybe longer if you...

    Add me into the "rent a car and stay in hotels" camp. RVing is fun (I'm on my second one.) But between the gas mileage, the slower speeds, the cost of RV spaces, the work of getting it level and...

    Those Go Passes and CityPasses are well worth the money. I use the one for Southern California every year. I've also used the Seattle, Atlanta, Houston and San Francisco one. They're great for first...

    Thank you for the welcome! I've gotten a lot of great information out of this forum already.

    If a camp site has a host spot, at least here on the West Coast of the US, it's usually filled. What's...

    I agree with Matt715 - the Stratosphere is a bit far from it all. It's doable, but it's funner to be closer in. I prefer the MGM or a little off strip, the Westin Las Vegas.

    Also I highly suggest...

    When I was a kid we used to spring (and steal) the steel jawed beaver traps from the river for this same reason. They kept getting the dogs. The laws have been tightened up, but you can still come...

    I prefer the San Remo, but you have to park down the street at the Safeway overnight. The Holiday Inn used to not charge for parking, but it's been a few years since I've stayed there.

    I know it's been a while, but I find U-Hual trucks to usually have more problems then Budget trucks.

    I would also second getting a trailer for the van instead of the tow dolly. In addition to it...

    I'm the type who doesn't prebook hotels. Mostly because it's easier for me to go until I am tired and allows me to alter my trip on the fly if need be.

    Also, you don't really want to do Crater Lake and the Oregon Dunes in the same trip. You'll end up crossing I-5 and waste a good half a day just driving between the two.
