That’s a lot of driving for ten days! Although I did once drive Palm Springs to San Francisco in one day, think it took about 8 hours with breaks.

Have you considered flying into SFO and back home from either LA or LV (or even San Diego), or vice versa? Appreciate you may not be able to change tickets, find availability etc.

I did a lot of Motel 6 and Super 8 stays, very basic but cheap.

Depends what you want out of a trip. I dont think that’s bad. My typical US road trip is anthing up to 2500 miles in 20ish days. The last CA one was SF, Highway 1 to LA, across to Barstow, up to Yosemite via Kings Canyon, Tahoe, Reno, across to Lassen National Park and back to SF. 2000 miles in 18 days.
