Hope I have posted this in the right forum.
We are a family of 2 adults 5 kids (12-5) who are hiring a dodge caravan or similiar minivan for a road trip. We are from Australia and have never been on an international trip before so it is very exciting but very scarey at the same time. With 7 of us it is also very expensive and will definately be a once in a lifetime trip (at least as a family)..
I have an itinerary and have booked the bulk of the accommodation - I would appreciate comments on roads to use, and best ways to go.
We fly into SF 17/11 stay 4 nights and then drive Yosemite (2 nights) - unsure of what exactly to see there as weather will be cold and snowy. Then planned to drive to Vegas in one day but wanted to see Death Valley - after reading some forums on here not sure with road closures if that will be possible (help). Please bear in mind we are well travelled in Australia and do yearly BIG road trips so all children are accustomed to 12-15 hour car trips. In Vegas for 4 nights and then driving to Grand Canyon for a night, continue driving to San Diego (which way - Palm Springs?? things to see on way??), In San Diego for 6 nights and then drive to Anaheim (3 nights) continue drive to LA (5 nights) and fly out to hawaii on 12th December.
Would greatly appreciate any info at all - thanks Wendy
