I am heading on an 18 day trip starting from Vancouver BC, down to California, the canyons and back up. We start on June 6th (4 am) and need to be in San Francisco to pick-up our two friends at the airport on June 8th.
Originally, our plan was to drive straight down the I-5. We were just given a suggestion to skip most of I-5 and go onto the 101 for the scenery. Is this possible? In the time that we have, can we drive part of the I-5, cut across and down 101? We don't have the option to extend the days for this portion of the trip.
