    Welcome to RTA!

    I hate to do this, but I'm going to burst your balloon. You cannot get any kind of good rest in a car unless you have a van with the back empty and an air mattress. You are...

    Welcome to RTA!

    You shouldn't have any problems on I-40 with a 26 footer. Yes, there are some grades and some quite winding stretches, but fully loaded 18 wheelers use that road every day of the...

    In MY opinion, the safest hotels (and generally the least expensive) are the ones at Interstate exits away from the larger cities, especially the ones that have a cluster of well-lit businesses at...

    Take a trip over to Walmart or a bookstore and get a Rand McNally Road Atlas.

    Exactly where in CT are you leaving from? I used Hartford, and you are looking at about 1200 miles. I'd leave on the...

    I also suspect budgetary issues, they have to hire people to staff the entrance station.

    I prefer taking US-34 through Big Thompson Canyon from Loveland into Estes Park, even though it's longer than US-36 from Boulder. The scenery in the canyon is worth it.

    Is your friend also in NYC? If so, I can't see how it would be any cheaper for airfare for 2 of you to some intermediate point, plus return airfare for you, than it would be to simply pay a NYC-SF...

    If you are going to Colorado Springs, there's also Pikes Peak.

    Welcome to RTA!

    I'd probably take Interstates and major truck routes as much as possible. I think if you took I-10 to Phoenix, I-17 to Flagstaff, then US-89 you should be safe. The only...

    It's only worth taking 89A if you want to go to the Grand Canyon North Rim. Otherwise, take 89 to Kanab, then 89A to Fredonia, AZ-389/UT-59 to UT-9 to I-15 so you don't have to through Zion again. ...

    The I-84 bridge between Beacon and Newburgh is all torn up with major delays. Take I-84 to I-684 to I-287 and use the Tappan Zee. Then take I-287 around the western NJ suburbs to I-78. Take that...

    Welcome to RTA!

    Bryce can be comfortably be seen in half a day, unless you want to do some hiking down in the canyon. It takes a few hours to watch the short movie in the visitor's center, drive...

    It has to be pretty soon - Ebbetts and Sonora Passes opened last Friday!

    May 6 at 9am, but I bet it's before that.

    Plowing began last week and Caltrans has 120 open from Lee Vining to the...

    It would make a GREAT road trip if you could take 3 days each way to do it! Hotels aren't that expensive once you get away from the northeast and big cities.

    Welcome to RTA!

    Actually, the most efficient route doesn't take you through any of the cities you mentioned except ABQ. If need be, this drive can be made in 4 full days on the road, so you have...

    I'd recommend SF to LA instead of the other way around, so the scenic turnouts are on your side of the road, and if you have time include the Grand Canyon between SD and LV. If Tioga Pass is still...

    You are just fine there.

    The whole area between the Edward Jones Dome and Busch Stadium from the riverfront to several blocks inland is the heart of downtown and should be quite safe. Plenty of...

    It would be hard to beat driving the Skyline Drive and Blue Ridge Parkway, and with 6 days you have plenty of time to do it.

    Which exact hotel? North of the Arch is not a very nice neighborhood. If it's the Days Inn, I'd recommend you cancel and reserve closer to downtown. Between the convention center/Edward Jones Dome...

    Donna, I have too (Wheeling, Columbus, Indy, STL, KC, and Denver), and I'd rather not do so in Wheeling, Columbus, Indy, and STL. KC and Denver are just too inconvenient to take the bypasses...

    I will send you the shop details via private message.

    For a multi-day trip in good weather on Interstates, you should limit yourself to no more than 600 miles a day. That's what professional...

    Welcome to RTA!

    I don't see a problem as long as you get it looked over by a GOOD shop and have any and all preventive and reactive maintenance done. Hyundai has developed a reputation for being...

    Yes, there's no need for a SUV. You may want to get a somewhat bigger car for comfort though. You will be on well maintained paved roads for the whole trip.

    It would work if you take the toll roads through PA,OH, IN, and IL - but not in KS. With my suggested route you would only have one toll in KS which (I think) is $2.75. The only other tolls you may...

    I would do the GC before LV, because you will already be on I-40 coming from California, just stay on it instead of taking I-15 back north to LV - and take AZ-64 north from Williams to the park. ...
