Not sure which forum to put this in, so I will try a couple. Bascially I am toying with the idea of landing in Portland and spending a couple of days at Crater Lake then a few in Redwoods. Finally, drive the coast on down to San Francisco. Any ideas how long it will take to drive the Coast to SF from Redwoods? Mapquest keeps diverting me to 101 and that is still about 6 hours. I am sure the coast drive will take longer, but not sure how much or if it is worth it.
I may try to break it into two days, perhaps stop half way for the night. I did not want to drive forever only to have a long flight back to the East Coast - I want to enjoy myself without feeling like we are constantly feeling like we are trying to get somewhere.
