Have posted previously but this topic header makes more sense now. My orginal plan was to drive from LV to Yosemite and then to SF in March, which i now know is completely impractical due to distance and weather. Can anyone advise me on an alternative plan? We leave Las vegas early in the morning and dont have to be in SF until the evening of the following day allowing for an overnight stop somewhere. I have been reading that the coastal route may be a good option. I dont mind doing up to around 7 (8 at a push) hours driving a day. I would like to see death valley along the way and then stop overnight. Can anyone suggest a good route and an idea on where is roughly halfway. Any suggestions on places to stop overnight would be greatly appreciated. Yep you are right us Brits have no idea on the grand scale of distance over there. Any help would b really appreciated.
