janisj, you're right, I used to live in London but am back in the 'shaky isles' now! Should really fill in my profile details

I'm sure we'll have a blast whichever route we end up taking. Really do appreciate all the comments.

mlgb, we'll do our best to see at least some of Death Valley. I also don't think Invercargill's quite as bad as some make out! The last time I was there was a couple of years ago for the Bluff Oyster Festival and I loved the fact that I had the big, wide streets pretty much to myself. It's probably not a place I'd go out of my way to direct tourists to, but I've certainly been to worse locales - and I enjoyed seeing the tuatara at the Southland Museum.

Hi, when we toured Yosemite we stayed at Tenaya lodge, just south of the park. It was very nice, not too far from the park, restaurant, hiking trail, etc. It isn't 'in the park' but plenty of available rooms on the weekend. Enjoy your trip and congrats, ziggypop

The itinerary will work out fine. We did two road trip last year through the area. one that took us from San Fran to NOLA and another that went all through Nevada. Sequoia was incredible, not sure if you should leave it out so was kings canyon.

While at the SD Zoo, spend the extra money and do the Behind the Scenes tour! The tortoise feeding is amazing, we have done the tour twice and to my surprise the tortoises was my favorite. Ocean Beach is a great, quirky area, if you like burgers, Hodads is the best. Wed. has the farmers market with amazing food. I don’t recommend staying there, unless you are an early riser, the outbound planes start flying over around 5:30am, every 5-7 minutes.
We have stayed in rented Condos/apartments in SD and SF. We have found some real gems and nice to have the extra space for the same price or less than a hotel. Have had great luck with Homeaway.com and VRBO.com.

ConstantRambler - you topped the thread why? Apparently you dug it up but didn't notice the OP's trip was two years ago . . . .
