    Welcome to RTA!

    The 2009 Charger has a 2000 lb towing capacity. A 5x8 enclosed U-Haul weighs 900 lb empty. Do the math. If you have more than 1100 lb of cargo it's a no-go. If you stick to...

    At Bryce, you don't have to go all the way to Cedar City to find reasonable lodging. You can look in Panguitch, Tropic, Cannondale, and Hatch.

    Why don't you just take the train from Memphis? Even with the connections, you won't get there any faster by driving.

    The best you are going to do is 5 full days, overnights:

    Benson AZ
    Fort Stockton TX

    If you would like a change of pace that will still only take 2 days - with the added benefit of being almost toll-free - you could take I-78 out of NYC to I-81 to Hagerstown, then I-70 to Hancock,...

    US-60 is now a freeway almost the whole length through MO from Sikeston to Springfield. What you would want to do is take it through Springfield, it will turn into MO-360 and dump you on I-44. Go a...

    I-75
    I-24
    I-57
    I-64
    I-70
    I-29

    Welcome to RTA!

    One item that will probably help you with your decision - Yellowstone will still be in winter mode in March and April, the roads will not be open to wheeled vehicles.

    If you are going to be making this a 1 day drive, I don't think you would have time for a Crater Lake detour.

    Welcome to RTA!

    April is not a good month to visit Yellowstone. It will still be in "winter mode" and none of the roads except the one from the north entrance to the northeast entrance will be...

    That may be wishful thinking - only 3 hours from Billings to the NE entrance? The Beartooth is VERY slow going. I'd keep that reservation and use it.

    I would reverse the direction of the trip so you are driving south down the coast. That way the scenic pullouts will be on your side of the road.

    There are several ways of doing it, but if you follow my directions you at least need to get to the I-86/I-390 junction, then you can choose options.

    I personally think you should defer a trip to...

    If all you are going to do is drive down I-5 from Seattle to SF or LA or San Diego, you might as well fly!

    I would go south out of SF down the coast to Cambria, then cut inland and head for the Grand Canyon. Then head for Death Valley (through LV) and Yosemite and back to SF.

    To find "cheap" lodging near restaurants and bars anywhere near Yosemite, you will have to look in Mariposa or Oakhurst. For Kings Canyon/Sequoia, you will have to look in Fresno or Visalia.

    You definitely do not have to take the NY Thruway to get from NJ to Niagara. It's just as fast to take I-80/I-380/I-81/I-86/I-390/NY-36/NY-63/US-20 and it's actually 50 miles shorter. The only toll...

    With that truck and trailer, it will be a very easy tow as long as the truck has a V-8. If it has a V-6, it's going to be a strain.

    That will also save you the toll on I-39 in Illinois.

    Don't take the I-74 bridge over the river in Davenport (it's old, narrow, and rough) - use either I-80 or I-280.
