  1. Default Nanaimo BC -Yellowstone - Monument Valley - Grand Canyon - Vegas - San Fran - home

    Hi all,

    I just joined this forum and we are planning to take the above trip this coming summer. We have not taken a road trip like this before and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on how long we will need and things we should see along the way. We can take 3 weeks for sure and maybe 4 if needed. We will be traveling with a 5th wheel. The last part of the trip from San Francisco to home we plan to drive up the costal highway.

    If anyone has taken a route like this before we would love to hear your experiences. Any suggestions or comments are welcomed.

    Well we decided to leave Yellowstone out of the loop to save some driving time. Never had any responses...maybe that means we are driving too far :-)
    Thanks anyway

    Not necessarily. Usually it just means that the dozen or so regular contributors were just swamped. I don't see any reason to bypass Yellowstone. On a trip of nearly 3700 miles, cutting it out would only save you about 350. With 3-4 weeks you have the time to wander a bit. You only have to cover 150-200 miles a day on average. Just a few of the places you might want to consider seeing in addition to those you've already listed include Glacier National Park, Great Salt Lake, Arches National Park, Big Sur, and Crater Lake National Park.

    Thanks for the response. We will check out those recommendations and reconsider Yellowstone.
