    Possible? Of course--it happens every day


    The Interstate highway system gets super-priority during and following major winter storms. Having had the pleasure of a number of ski season trips to CO and UT, including most of the "fun...

    Sticky: Fifth wheel

    The flat plate through which a trailer's pin fits and upon which the trailer's flat plate rides, supporting the trailer's weight over the rear axle of the tow vehicle, lubricated by generous amounts...

    Sticky: Good topic

    When I do multi-day trips, particularly in winter, I'll lay out some primary cities for each day's travel and start looking at local forecasts for each starting at between 5 and 10 days...
  4. Either-or

    I see Pullman is located at the "in between" point where running up to Spokane vs down to I-84 are similar distances. If it were my trip, and particular when towing, I'd run up to I-90 unless local...
  5. Finding open campgrounds is likely the biggest challenge

    Sounds like a nice trip! Happy anniversary!

    Given the propensity for water system pedestals and RV water intake lines to freeze, many if not most campgrounds close in the heart of the winter. ...

    No worries here!

    Absolutely, Mark, no intent to take issue with yours or anybody else's sage advice. Just offering a different perspective. It's all good in my view.

    Bigfork--what a great spot!

    Year-round sunsets over Flathead Lake. Nice!

    I'm something of a contrarian around here in that I willingly take the road less traveled when missing out on traffic congestion is part of the deal. ...

    I-95 from NY to Florida at New Year's

    I live in Raleigh, NC and have occasion to travel parts of I-95 in NC and VA on a regular basis. The time period between Christmas and New Years Day is normally one of the most heavily traveled times...
  9. Welcome to North Carolina!

    Raleigh native and lifelong resident here. Welcome.

    I wouldn't be worried about snow at this point in time. Most likely any snow would be encountered at the small handful of passes, of which...

    "Beaches" being the controlling term...........

    .......then sure, late November can be a fine time to enjoy South Carolina's beaches. It's normally not a good time to enjoy the water, as water temps even in the low- to mid-60s is "take your...
  11. No specifics as to overnight spots


    I have no experiences in motels and restaurants along I-95 inasmuch as I live in Raleigh so only experience it on the front or back end of a trip. Just looking at the mileage numbers...
  12. For me, the flatter, the better

    I see you're leaving NY on a Saturday morning. While there seems to never be a gentle day in terms of traffic in the DC/Baltimore area, I do expect that arrival from the north in the mid-late...
  13. Wyoming in winter

    How this drive goes is purely dependent on the weather, and there's no way to predict the timing and duration of weather front passage at this point in time.

  14. National Forest campgrounds

    As a long-time Road Tripper who has recently re-discovered RV camping perhaps I can offer a few ideas:

    Our RV is a hardside A-Frame popup (Rockwood A127TH). It's 19' long and the tow vehicle is...
  15. Thread: Seattle to Detroit

    by Foy

    This comes up often

    And for all of the reasons cited by AZ Buck, it's just not a good idea, particularly if you have the flexibility of schedule to watch weather forecasts carefully and hold back if early winter storms...
  16. Just a few tidbits

    Please bear in mind I've never been ON the water at any of the listed lakes, or anywhere else in East TN, southern KY, or far western NC. But, I've RoadTripped and done field work as a geologist all...

    Kitsch coming right up........

    Not far east of the Black Hills and Badlands is Wall, SD, where the Wall Drug billboards and signs all over the West are beaconing you to. It's kitschy as can be, but there are actually some shops...

    Same trip

    Hello Neighbor,

    We are soon to leave on essentially the same trip, only we're destined for far western Montana. We're in a Ford F350 diesel and towing a hardside pop-up camper with a loaded...
  19. Disbursed camping


    The term "disbursed camping" is used by NF personnel to define the act of overnight stays, be they by those sleeping in a vehicle, tenting, or in a camper, within a NF unit, but away...
  20. Nice plan!

    And sometimes the thinnest of plans is the best one.

    A few suggestions are:

    Become familiar with the National Forest (NF) websites. In the Southeast, and in particular along the Appalachian...

    Well, that depends on a few things,...........

    ..........mostly, "what's your style?"

    My assumption is that if you're towing a 30' tag-along camper, your overnights are going to all be at full-hookup RV parks--no dry camping/boondocking. And...
  22. Dillon, MT

    If you take I-15 all the way to I-90 at Butte, you'll have to pass through Homestake Pass on the east side of Butte. Not that it's a challenge--it's just a long hill, but it can be avoided by taking...

    Older F350, trailer brakes, I-90 passes

    I would not have "no go" type reservations about towing a 35' TT with a 1986 F350 which has a new(er) engine, but I would want to be comfortable that:

    The TT has good electric brakes and...
  24. Me, too

    A hearty X2 on the paper maps. Software will all too often have you do some mighty silly things. On occasion, some downright dangerous things, too. "Death by GPS" is more often a winter travel...
  25. "Next Exit"?

    I was given a hardcopy publication entitled "Next Exit" about 4 years ago. Scarcely used it since. I recall it provides some details as to relative ease of access for large/long vehicles. It's...
