    I fully agree with Donna - and your overnight stops should be Cincinnati and Little Rock. This will get you into Houston Sunday evening.

    I would do a loop trip, starting and ending in the same city. Otherwise, there will be a one way drop fee on the rental car.

    Tolls from DC to NYC are about $40, but there are ways to avoid a good...

    Welcome to RTA!

    You have a 3000 mile trip, which will take you 6 days. I would suggest the following route:

    I-84/I-81/I-40/I-15

    5 evenly spaced overnights would be:

    Welcome to RTA!

    I'd suggest US-101 all the way to Port Angeles, then the ferry to Victoria, then the ferry to Tsawwassen.

    Yes, you should be prepared for snow. You can get up to the minute road conditions at cotrip.org, they have a mobile version if you have a smartphone. You won't need chains but I...

    They are also not as easy to get to from I-78, and the fares into NYC will be considerably higher. I think Iselin would be your best bet. Just make sure you are allowed to park for more than 24...

    Welcome to RTA!

    It is always going to be less expensive returning a rental car to the same city where you rent it. With this in mind, you should fly from NYC to either Memphis or Nashville, and...

    Without any sightseeing stops, it's only about 2.5 hours or so from Homestead to Naples via 997 and 41 - so why not do a little exploring of the Everglades through the windshield if you don't want to...

    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.

    How many days can you take for this trip?

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

    Benson AZ

    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,...

    To only spend 5 nights on the road, you have to take the most direct (fastest) route - which is:

    I-95/Turnpike
    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.
