Hi there, have booked fly/drive one way SF to Seattle from 11-28 August with my 15 yo son. 3 nights booked SF and 2 nights Seattle, car rental sorted. Proposed draft itinerary: hwy 1 thro Medocino, stopping between Humboldt Redwoods State Park and Redwood NP (Eureka or Arcata maybe?) to explore. Then on to Portland along hwy 101, stopping for 3 nights?, Mount St Helens and finally Seattle.
Not sure about driving times, so unsure how long to stay in each place and would love some recommendations for places to see/stopover along the Oregon coast.. Also opinions about advisability of satnav? We're on a tight budget, trying to keep to $70 per night accommodation (considering camping as an option). This was a mad last minute booking so apologies for not being better researched! All contributions gratefully received.
Many thanks, SandraEdited: 06 August 2012, 02:01
