Havn't been around in a long time but when this question popped up, i immediately thought of the non-aviation forum on airliners.net
About my question. In march, my GF (we're form Holland btw) has a 4-day conference in San Diego. I'll join her afterwards for another week of holiday. We want to drive from San Diego to San Franciso and just have fun, see thinbgs, explore etc.
The planetickets havnt been booked. Are there car rentalservices where you can pick up a car in, let's say, LA (i might fly there), drive to San Diego, afterwards drive to SF en hand it in overthere? Any reccomandations? I am sorry, i've never really done this before so i dont know a lot about it. Do you have any advice for me/my gf about flying from Amsterdam? Straight to LAX and drive to San Diego or maybe to san fran, or a layover somewhere in the usa and a domestic flight to San Diego?
Any other tip of trick is useful. Thank you in advance.
Best regards, Frederik

Plane tickets have been booked (i'm flying the big jumbo with KLM to LAX, return. Seating advice? seatguru gives me nog that much information).
My GF and i would like to rent a mobile home, don't know the correct English term (Camper? Motorhome?) so we can drive as long as we want and have the freedom to sleep whenever we need. We would like rent it from LAX airport en hand it back in at LAX. It is from march 9th to march 17th.
Do you have any advice? And something else: i have my (Dutch) driver licence for more than 13 years now so i know how to drive but are there any things i should take in to consideration while driving in the USA?
Thank you .
