I'm planning on taking a road trip. From Southern Utah, to San Diego and then up the coast to SF and Sacramento. From there I plan to head east to Salt Lake through Reno, and then back home.
Basically one big loop around the Utah, Nevada, and California.
The problem lies in lodgings for the nights. I'm hoping someone here has an idea to keep costs low, and to avoid as many $60 a night motels as possible.
Since gas will be pretty expensive already, I'd hate to pay for more than I need to.
