Rental Car

I selected a Ford Focus because it would get me the most bang for my buck in terms of gas mileage. The Ford Focus gets 37 MPG which was able to save me a lot of money. It was also $59.99 a day for unlimited miles.

Map of the Route

As you can see in the map we went all over the West coast, we were forced to take different routes due to dates of Professional games.
