      Car shuttle for thru-hike of High Sierra Trail

      Sequoia National Park Feb 21, 2015 at 5:23 PM

      Hello all! I am planning a thru hike of the High Sierra trail for summer 2015. While I have the logistics of the actual hike nailed down, I'm having trouble with transportation from trailheads. My plan would be to leave my rental car at Whitney Portal rd then hire a service to take me to the other side and leave me at Crescent Meadow.

      I know it's a long drive and the few services I found are quite expensive. Curious if anyone has experience with other alternatives? Public transport doesn't seem practical. Suggestions or advice would be appreciated.

      Thanks!

      Visitng the park over Memorial Day

      Sequoia National Park Feb 20, 2015 at 8:55 PM

      My family would like to visit Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon over the Memorial Day weekend. I know it is on the cusp of Summer, but can anyone provide some insight if any of the roads/ares might still be closed? Also, we would like to camp, but it seems most of the campsites are first come, first serve. Does anyone have experience camping there over this holiday weekend. Are the crowds horrible? We will be arriving late Friday night from San Francisco so I'm worried it will be hard to find a campsite. We plan to extend our long weekend through Wednesday and would like to explore a lot of area. Any though, opinions, and/or suggestions are much appreciated!

      Yosemite - Lake Tahoe - Napa Valley must see's

      Yosemite National Park Jan 31, 2015 at 12:19 AM

      Hi folks

      Now I have made all the plans for the first part of our USA trip (San Francisco and Sequoia / Kings Canyon) - So I just need to plan our visit to Yosemite, Lake Tahoe and Napa Valley.

      May 1st
      Driving from Sequoia to Yosemite (staying in a heated canvas in Curry Village)

      May 3rd
      Driving from Yosemite to Lake Tahoe. (Staying at 3 Peaks Resort & Beach club, South Lake Tahoe)

      May 5ft
      Driving from Lake Tahoe to Napa Valley (staying at the Wine Valley Lodge)

      May 7th
      Driving from Napa Valley to SFO and flying back home to Denmark.

      Are there some interesting places that we just have to stop along the way, driving from one place to another?

      Yosemite
      What are the must see's here for a couple 35/45 yrs ? (Bearing in mind that we have just spend two days in Sequoia prior to our stay in Yosemite)

      Lake Tahoe
      What are the must see's / must do's here? Which weather can we expect in Lake Tahoe in beginning of May ?

      Napa Valley
      What are the must see's here? We both like wine, so of course we want to visit some wineries. Which ones are definitely worth a visit?

      Have a great day ;o)

      Sequoia april/may - 1½ day itinerary

      Sequoia National Park Jan 30, 2015 at 1:47 AM

      My husband and I (35 and 45 yrs), are travelling to USA in april/maj 2015.

      On 30th of april we drive from San Francisco to Sequoia, estimated arrival late afternoon. We have booked two nights at Wuksachi Lodge. And on 1st of May we drive from Sequoia to Yosemite.

      What are the "must see's" for our stay? How would a realistic itinerary look for 1 evening, 1 hole day, and 1 morning? We want to see as much as possible.

      Are some things going to be closed when we are there (late April/beg. May)?

      Do we need to bring snowchains?

      What about box for food? (i am thinking bears here) - Do we still need that, staying at Wuksachi Lodge? If so, how and where do we rent boxes?

      Best regards

      2-the easiest way to reach between both cities and details.. driving is not a viable option maybe since time is short
      3- What to do in both cities given the time constraint and no car rental. I Understand that LA is big and spread out
      4-in case you can help with Vegas stay (what to do , etc), would be happy to hear suggestions, too!

We will have a rental car but our flights out on Ssunday are 6 hours apart with the two of us departing at 8 am and our friends at 2 pm. We are trying to come up with an alternate plan to get to the airport and leave the rental car with our friends so they can enjoy the balance of the morning. Does anyone know how if there is a car service (or shuttle) to the airport and what the aproximate cost might be?

      First time to Sonoma

      by afrdrx Online Now May 1, 2011 at 12:06 PM

      Hello all,

      I posted a similar question in the Napa forum, but my boyfriend and I (in our late 20's) are visiting both Napa and Sonoma in late August. He has been to Sonoma once before for a wedding, but it will be my first time there. We are narrowing down places to stay before diving into planning things to do. We've been looking at both vacation rentals, and hotels. We will have a rental car but also like to walk or bike if we can to avoid relying solely on the car. I've read mixed reviews about many places to stay in Sonoma, and was hoping to get some input here. I'm looking for advice on areas of town to stay, as well as specific lodging suggestions. We've looked into:

      -A few places near Boyes Hot Springs, off Sonoma Hwy

      -A couple places near East Napa St and 8th St

      -El Dorado Hotel (From what I've read...Pros: great location; Cons: lots of noise and tight on space)

      -Bungalows 313 (seems like a nice option but again, I've read some great reviews, and some terrible...has anyone stayed here that can provide some insight?)

      -Les Petites Maisons

      We prefer to be in a relatively active area of town, and are big on food & wine (hence, the trip to wine country!) Any tips on nice (and not exceedingly expensive) areas/places to stay (and things to do/places to check out, since that would be my follow-up question) would be welcome and much appreciated. Thanks!
