    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.

    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 may want to take public transportation across the border and rent the car in Bellingham or Seattle.

    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...

    The closest hotel to the park outside Yosemite is the Cedar Lodge. I've stayed there, it's nothing special and rooms are about $175 a night. NO cell service and the only wifi is in the lobby at an...

    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.

    If you leave San Diego at 6am, you will be hitting the eastern LA area at the height of rush hour. I'd personally go via Phoenix, you won't have any problems there in midday.

    The pile of rocks was never moved - it was placed in the wrong position initially due to a surveying error. Very similar to 4 Corners, where the true 4 corners is a mile away from the monument.
