Hi all,

I am planning on a 6-day road trip from san francisco to portland.. This is going to be a one-way trip since I dont have time to drive back.. I have a few questions to those who have done this.. Considering it is winter time,

1. Which route is better in terms of scenery? Highway 1 to leggett and then 101 along the coast? or should I take I-5 after leggett...

2. Any places that you recommend for staying? I am interested in youth hostels since I will be traveling alone..

3. Any interesting stops/must-see's on the way?

Thanks for any suggestions.. Sorry if this was covered before, I searched the forum and could not find anything..
