Hi. I live in Perth Western Australia. My wife and I and 2 of our children are planning a road trip around California in April. After spending a week in LA/Anaheim doing the park thing etc, we are renting a RV and plan to see a diverse range of what California has to offer.
I would be very grateful for any views on the following itinerary that I am thinking about, particularly with regard to whether the distances I am looking at covering are unrealistic bearing in mind road conditions, and whether the places I am looking at stopping at would be worthwhile or whether I should change intended stops and what I should definitely stop/look at upon the way.
Day 1 - LA to San Diego
Day 2 - San Diego
Day 3 - San Diego to Palm Springs
Day 4 - Palm Springs to Grand Canyon via Williams
Day 5 - Grand Canyon to Las Vegas
Day 6 - Las Vegas
Day 7 - Las Vegas to Mammoth Lakes
Day 8 - Mammoth Lakes to Yosemite NP
Day 9 - Yosemite NP to San Francisco
Day 10 - San Francisco
Day 11 - San Francisco to Monteroy
Day 12 - Monteroy to Luis (via Big Sur)
Day 13 - Luis to LA
Any thoughts on good RV parks along the route would also be appreciated and do you think I would need to book into the parks or just turn up.
