We 2A + 12yo son are travelling to San Fran in Jan 19 and would love some ideas on what and how to see the area, we have around 10 days to make our way to Steamboat Springs.
I've wanted to see the Yosemite and death valley areas for years however not sure this is a great idea in Winter? and wonder if we skip this area and look at it in a better season in years to come and spend more time ?
I am really looking for ideas so a little about us to help with your opinion...
From a beautiful part of Australian coast, have experience in Driving trucks and Rv's in Aus, new Zealand and the USA, love camping and not afraid of driving big miles for a great reward at the end??? Some areas to mention we Have seen and loved to further help with your thought process and opinions: some of Canadian Rockies between Whistler and Banff, South CA (Pismo to LA) coast in August, Daytona and Orlando over December/January and Colorado rockies in the winter, South and North NZ in different seasons.
Is it a bad idea to travel in RV in Winter with poor road conditions and limited entry to places???
We can change to a car for the trip but obviously plans for accommodation are more specific rather than travel in RV where plans can be modified along the way.
A very rough plan with no particular order:
San Fran 3 days
Mammoth mtn (Ski area)?
Yosemite? (which parts as I understand Tioga pass closed in winter)
skip the YNP area and do the coast a little north and south
head inland to Vegas and fly rest of journey to Colorado?
We are open to any suggestions and really appreciate any ideas and opinions!
Thanks in advance!
