Hello RTA! I have been reading this forum for a few weeks now to get some tips and advice from all the threads and discussions here.
Me and my friend are going on a road trip as mentioned in the tittle. First I would like to present you our road trip itinerary and than I will ask some questions about it :).
San francisco (14.4-18.4. 4 NIGHTS)rent a car in SF and drive to - Yosemite (18.4-19.4. 1 NIGHT) - drive to sequoia national park and than to Death Valley (19.4-20.4. 1 NIGHT camping/sleeping in the car)- Next morning or afternoon drive to Las Vegas (20.4-22.4 2 NIGHTS) - Drive to hoover dam for a quick stop and continiouing to Grand Cannyon (22.4-23.4 1 NIGHT) - drive to Joshua Tree (23.4-24.4 1 NIGHT)- and finally Los Angeles (24.4-28.4 4 NIGHTS).
So my questions:
Is this doable? I know it might be a tight schedule with those one night stays?
I am still looking for camping grounds just to stay and sleep overnight in our cars in (Death Valley, Grand Canyon and Joshua Tree), any suggestions? (best would be some campgrounds that provide some showers and restaurants/convenience stores since we wont have any camping gear)
Any good stops or interesting things we should not miss or seen in between those destinations?
It will be the first time I am coming to America and the first time that I will go on a road trip like this so any suggestions and recommendations will be appreciated! :). We have made some reservations already but nothing is 100% and can be changed except that the starting point is in San Francisco and that the end of the road has to be in LA and on 24.th April since we already paid for accommodation.
I am looking forward to hearing your responses! Thank you :)!
