3 week road trip with the best of California/Arizona/Utah/Nevada

Hi

I'm planning a three week road trip in September/October and I would really appreciate any advice or critique of my itinerary.
I'll fly into and out of LAX and will stay with my sister in LA (Santa Monica) for three days before and six days after the road trip and hope to fit in a visit to San Diego in that time.

Kauai Cruisers?

Hey folks!

We're headed to Kauai in a short while, and we're looking for anyone on the island who rents Kauai Cruisers. Back in the day on Maui, there was a guy in Kahalui who rented Maui Cruisers, i.e. older, everyday cars with normal wear and tear. That is, not bright and shiny brand new Jeeps or convertibles. Does anyone know if someone on Kauai runs a similar business?

Many thanks!

Mobile, Alabama

Hey,

Would appreciate some help. Tomorrow morning I'm arriving to mobile with greyhound, and it looks like the station is not so close to the center of the city. I checked for buses, but couldn't find none. Any advice how to get to the city center cheap? Besides walking. Will be staying just for a day, because I'm catching bus to Lafayette the same day.

Thanks a lot for help.
