i am planning for a trip in the american west and i would like to ask a few questions:
please refer to this google map route so that my questions are clearer for your. http://goo.gl/maps/9JpqW
1 - what is your first impression on this route? assuming that ill be spending 2-3 nights in L.A. and one night in Las Vegas. the Monument Valley is a must in the road trip.
2 - Should I reach destination (B) (death valley) to experience it or going straight from L.A. to las vegas will put me in the similar desert mood?
3 - after i reach the monument valley. where is the closest place to take the airport to San Fransisco for example? (is it just salt lake city, vegas, and phoenix?). because i dont want to drive the road back again to the coast.
4- RV: it seems that theres a regular limit of 500 miles that i'm allowed to drive and i should pay more if i exceed this mileage. Is this true? and if yes, and assuming that google maps calculated to route to be around 800 miles for now. should i pay like 100$ for the extra 300 miles?
5- what about gas? how much should i pay for the 800 miles? if it's the small RV?
6- should i get an international driving license to be able to drive and rent the RV? i'm Lebanese.
thank you for your help!
