    We done exactley what you are planning (some mates and me) and we just turned up at the airport and booked then, the flights were nowhere near full. Apparently the majority of internals in America arent

    Drive instead. It isn't particularly far between either of them and what would you rather have memories of - sitting in a Boeing 767 or driving through the Mohave Desert?

    I agree, and you may get to drive along PH1 too.
    It's always handy to have a car in LA, SF or LV anyway.

    Yes but its a drive which in parts encompasses some of the most stunning sights on the planet! Highway 1 along the coast is fantastic.

    The driving is SO good my entire trip in September is based around driving from LA to Vegas up to SF and back to LA.

    LA or LV to SF can be done in a day. I've done LA<->SF a few times (~7 hours) and it's not too bad. Just stick the cruise control on and it's easy. Freeways in USA aren't like the motorways in the UK where everyone is trying to get ahead.

    As for driving on the right, just tell yourself to keep right especially when turning onto larger roads. First day I ever drove (actually I rode a motorbike) in a America I told myself to keep right, only to end up on the left as I pulled out of the docks!

    id do it if i was on my own... but travelling with other people, well lets say we're gonna have a good time and if something happens then its all on me. And all the other three have already chickened out of driving.
