Ok take two - my original post was deleted for some reason, so I'll try again.
My husband and I are doing a big road trip through the Western United States. We are British but have been living in Australia for the past year and this trip is us making our slow way home. We started off with a stop in beautiful Tahiti and then went on to Hawaii - both Oahu and the Big Island. Our first stop on the mainland was San Francisco, and from there we will be driving north to the Redwoods, into Oregon, Washington, across to Yellowstone and South Dakota, down to Colorado, Arizona and Utah and finishing up in California. We have about seven weeks for this mainland portion of the trip.
It's a big trip covering a lot of ground, but we did a very similar trip to this three years ago at an even faster pace and enjoyed every minute of it so we are keen to repeat. I've been doing these reports semi-live as we go along for friends and family but I hope they will be of some interest on here as well. If anyone wants to see photos I have lots of these too (but I don't think I'm allowed to post the link directly on here).
I'll post the reports as replies...
