I'm from Canada, never been to Yosemite. i have a meeting in Livermore CA June 28-30th (so will fly into SFO) and then need to get to Reno by noon on July 1st, where I'll meet a friend who's coming into the airport there and we'll drive down to Mammoth Lakes together. Do you think it would be easier time-wise to just drive to Reno, or drive from Livermore back to an SFO airport and go through the hassles of air travel and fly to Reno. I don't mind driving especially as I will be seeing a part of the US I haven't been to for ages...unless it is a boring drive, or prone to lots of traffic/accidents/bad weather?? We'll fly out of Reno back to Canada, so I guess there would be the added expense of having a one-way rental car from SFO.
