Road trip USA: Riding the Pacific Coast to LA
Vernon, British Columbia ⇒ Los Angeles, California
Our grand exit from Canada is fast approaching, we need to get our asses moving, we have an EPIC adventure ahead of us! Follow along and help guide us as we ride Cee Cee (our 1984 Goldwing) 4,200km down the Pacific Coast to LA where we will ultimately fly her and ourselves back home to Australia.

Our very loosely planned itinerary
Last Sunday we sat down drank our fill of coffee and knuckled down to put together a loose itinerary of our USA trip… By loose we literally mean loose, we know we will ride down the Pacific Coast so we wrote down which towns we might stay at and rough costs. The purpose was to:
a) workout a budget and if we could even afford the trip and
b) be decent people and let our friends know in advance when we plan to stop in.
Here are the cities are planning to stay at, but we want your advice –
Where shall we eat? Restaurant and market recommendations
Where will we sleep? We are on the look out for cheap hotels/ BnB’s/ hostels
