I've been living in Salt Lake City in Airbnb's for the past couple of months, which has been great in terms of flexibility, but I'd now like to rent a place (furnished, with utilities) for a little longer - let's say 3 months. Online there's a myriad of apartment rental sites, but it's a minefield and none that I've found give me any confidence that they can provide what I'm looking for (requirements inside) - is there a particular recommended service or site for this purpose?

Is there a store in Salt Lake City that sells Utahn USGS 7.5 minute topo maps that's open on Saturday? Or, alternatively, a place in Moab that's open on Sunday? For instance, does REI sell topo maps? We're visiting Utah from Vancouver Canada and we don't have enough time to have maps shipped from the USGS, but unfortunately the way things are timed we're going to be passing through SLC and Moab on the weekend. We'll need the maps by Monday morning, otherwise we'd hang around. Any help would be appreciated.

A buddy and I are going on a road trip starting the 28th of December for 8 days. Our first destination is the Grand Canyon but after that, who knows. Being the anal retentive that I am, I sort of plotted out a route that took us from the GC to Zion then Bryce then Salt Lake City then across upper Nevada to Tahoe. I was wondering, is this too ambitious? Are there cooler things to see or places to visit? How about places to avoid?
