    Best answer: What is the struggle REALLY

    If you are under 25 very hard and expensive to rent a car.

    You could do this by Amtrak trains.

    You start with getting a MAP Google has a good one.

    You plan to get up early and just go. Breakfast down the road. Your choice to take the freeway/motorway and just get from one place to the next or take the side roads and explore a bit.
    Obviously you are not used to driving hundreds of miles at a time. For one driver plan on about 300 miles per day. I assume you actually want to get out of the car and do some stuff

    A one way car rental can be expensive
    .Renting a recreational vehicle? Your hotel room on wheels?
    Shall we all guess if you want to spend hours staring at the Pacific Ocean , exploring some winery, climbing some hills or mountain?

    San Francisco is expensive to park in. Recommend you stay just outside the city and ride Public transportation for San Francisco.

    As a tourist do not expect to be driving top speed the entire distance. Your on the road driving time is closer to 20 hours. Three driving days for ONE driver.

    For planing purposes plan on no more than two sightseeing things per day.. Each takes 2-3 hours from the time you park and then on your way to next place.

    Oregon caves is a nice stop.You can use this stop to switch between either the coast road slow with nice scenery or the faster route that also has good scenery.

    Redwood or sequoia forest are worth a stop. The trees are really big.
    Suggest you start reading the various tourism websites and make a list of the things that are of interest. TO YOU.
    You then research a bit more and narrow it down. Leave a little time in budget for the unexpected thing you find along the way.
    If this is a one way trip you have lots of time. If going on a return drive allow more time for the return. No need to be racing to Airport to catch your flight.

    DO NOT plan on doing very much your first day. JET LAG happens and you deal with it.

    About 1000 miles One way not too bad.by North American standards. Things of interest can be a hundred or miles apart plan for this travel time.

    Train not the best Just once or twice a day. for most places along the route. The train is a great ride. Seeing stuff along the way usually means a 24 stop and then figuring out how to get to and from station. Limited public transit between cities on the West Coast.


    Just a wee bit more information from you can get a much better answer. Up to you if you just want to drive and watch things pass by the windows.or get out of the car and do something.What is it you might want to do.? Hike to a hot spring for a swim.a bike ride, maybe you want some white water rafting?

    You budget for sleeping? You do not really need all the extras every night. A room and bed for most nights is more than enough, Splurge for the extras near the end of trip if you have money left.

  • What can you buy in America that you cannot buy elsewhere, apart from guns?

    Best answer: Firearms are legally sold in many countries but the difference is the amount of bureaucracy or red-tape that a buyer has to go through for licencing and purchase of firearms in other countries compared to that within the US.

    Best answer: Firearms are legally sold in many countries but the difference is the amount of bureaucracy or red-tape that a buyer has to go through for licencing and purchase of firearms in other countries compared to that within the US.

    Some branding is unique to the US such as Exxon. ExxonMobil, the parent company, operates in many other countries but is known as Esso elsewhere.

    Some foods are mostly unique to the US. For example, Baby Ruth, the candy bar, is not openly available in other countries. You can buy it from speciality stores that may import it but it's not readily available as it would be in a typical US variety or grocery store.

  • Why is all of New Jersey such a ghetto?

    Best answer: When you leave New York city and cross the state line into New Jersey there is a giant land fill right there at the main intersection. And it stinks. So there you have it. A big sign that says Welcome to New Jersey and right there is a landfill. And a legend was born.

    I will be in Chicago visiting friends for a week in December. I am trying to decide on a hotel. It needs to be a Hilton property because I'm paying with points. I love the idea of staying in an iconic and historic hotel like The Palmer House...but the reviews tend to be hit and miss. Pictures of the lobby look beautiful, but the rooms look kinda like something out of the 80s. This will be my first time in Chicago (outside of layovers at O'Hare), so some local advice is also welcome. Thank you!

    Hi, I'm a UK actor and have had some success here (small film roles, TV shows, etc.) and I've been asked by an agent to fly to Los Angeles to talk about a potential US film part. My intuition is telling me that something is slight off but I'm going to fly out anyway and see what comes of it. If this turns out to be a disaster, is it the kind of town where I can literally just turn up at agencies and ask if work is available? Can I just go along to auditions? I have easily enough money to live on out there until my visa expires anyway so I'm thinking about just treating it as a long holiday and if something turns up... Am I completely out of my mind for doing this?

  • Is it true people in NY are like robots?

    Best answer: If I had to guess it’s cause they are emotionless like a robot. After living in such a hardcore area everyone kinda adapts and acts the same way because it’s either that or you die and become the victim.
