There are quite a few threads i have found and read through, but with a few contradictions and am hoping to clear a couple of things up before we leave for our honeymoon trip.
Ive mainly based this on Google times, but know from experience in the UK that they can wildly vary due to traffic, so am hoping someone with local knowledge can give more accurate times.
All the hotels have now been booked, so I only have limited options if i am way out on a portion of the trip, but my main worry is Vegas to SF. Google claims 9 hours via the outskirts of LA, but I was hoping to go Death Valley / Yosemite, which Google quotes 12 hours. Is this doable? I like driving, but have never driven in the US before so am thinking it might be too long to concentrate.
Also, Monteray to LA via Highway 1, what sort of times should I expect if i choose the pacific highway?
My other worry is fuel stops along that route, are there plenty or is it a good idea to keep a jerry can in the car?
