We are on our way to the Fresno factory Sunday, Monday is fix it day.
Any suggestions on a close spot for a quiet spot to stay the night, then on to somewhere else for two or three days before we return to so cal (home).?
all suggestions, maps, trails or GPS traks would be greatly appreciated
Yosemite is relatively close (less than an hour as I recall to the entrance) You do not have to go all the way down to the valley if you do not have time (that is an extra hour drive from the entrance to the park to the valley). The Mariposa Grove is right at the entrance and the Wawona Hotel is within a few minutes of the entrance. If you haven't been to Yosemite you may as well go while you are in Fresno. One of my favorite spots.

CJ - we've done that trip twice now (once to pick up the van and once to get repairs done). We drove through Sequoia National Forest and the Kearnville area (Chimney Rock) on the way back in October. I loved both areas and would highly recommend them.
When we went up right before Thanksgiving for repairs, we headed West to Monterey, then drove back down through Big Sur, Los Olivas and the Frazier Mountain area. Another route I would higly recommend.
If you want any more details, let me know.
