VA to CA Road Trip Opinions Needed

Jump to last reply

I am traveling with a friend to San Francisco CA from Norther Virginia. During the trip I wanted to make it somewhat of a vacation as well and want opinions on the schedule/budget (is it do-able/enjoyable). We have seen San Fran. many times, so the time spent there is not a real objective (I know its not enough time to "see San Fran." =) ). Also, we are fully prepared to camp (in fact we love it)!

Time: 17 days
Budget for 2: $3400.00 (with $ for oil change, car fluids, and emergency set aside)
Vehicle: 2005 Chevy Cobalt
