Hiya everyone :)
Thanks for your help in advance!! Hubby and I are doing an awesome trip to Alaska/Canada/US next May. First the first 23 days we are on a tour of Canada/Alaska. On 1st June we fly into San Fran. The first few days will be doing touristy things, e.g. 3-day camping trip to Yosemite, Alcatraz/HOHO buss etc. From there we are looking at hiring a car and driving to South Lake Tahoe (staying) then going through the Eastern Sierras down to LA (following 395 and 14 through Topaz Lake, Bridgeport, Lee Vining, Mammoth Lakes, Bishop, Lone Pine, Cartago, Mojave, Lancaster, Santa Clarita). We have six days to get from SLT to LA and play in LA, then onto Vegas (following 15) where we will be staying for a week then flying out to Hawaii.
I have acrophobia, but generally only with regards to driving (or passenger) on the road. I am fine with flying/helicopter/rides, well not fine but doable. However driving along cliffsides/steep drop-offs etc has me completely going to pieces. I am going to be trying hypotherapy to help before I go, in fact I have my first session in a few weeks where I will be testing it out the following week in Queenstown, NZ :D. I am really hoping it at least lessens my fear. I will likely also have backup sedation next year to take as well lol.
I have found that preparing for the "bad bits" slightly helps, as opposed to driving around the corner and seeing instant death lol. Looking at the road-trip and highways, where could I possibly pass out? The only one I know is Echo Summit just before we get to South Lake Tahoe, then apparently leaving SLT on 88/89, which is why I am going up 50 to Carson then down 395.
Any and ALL help is much appreciated!!
Here is the path we are taking visually....
