    Welcome to RTA!

    It's impossible to forecast the weather and road conditions this far in advance, but I will tell you that you should not try to do this drive in 2 days. You really need 3 days (or...

    Welcome to RTA!

    A winter trip with either a RV or a Mustang would not be very wise. You don't need a SUV, but a standard front drive sedan would be advised.

    Welcome to RTA!

    1. Yes, but you won't be able to stay in any one place very long. To drive from coast to coast, in the car 10 to 12 hours a day, via shortest Interstate highway routes, would...

    Yes. In fact, that's better and I don't know why I didn't suggest that. Take I-90 to Sioux Falls, I-29 to north of Omaha, I-680 to I-80 to Davenport, then I-74 to Indy to pick up I-70.

    Welcome to RTA!

    It would be best to rent, then buy when you get there. It makes no sense to buy a car, pay for the NY titling, inspection, and registration, just to do it all over again when you...

    The Google I-90 output sends you through Chicago and across the toll roads. That's why my suggestion to take I-29 from I-90 down to I-70 adds 100 miles. You will avoid traffic, significant tolls,...

    I disagree - at Flagstaff, take US-89 north to AZ-64 and go in the east entrance.



    Typo - it's AZ-85.

    I would recommend you cross the border at Sarnia instead of at Niagara Falls. You want to try to stay out of the lake effect snow belt.

    There's a bunch of chain hotels in Metairie within a couple blocks of the I-10/Causeway Blvd interchange. Further out, there's a bunch in Kenner by the airport.

    Gas Buddy, Hotels.com, Travelocity come to mind first. Most important, PAPER maps, do not depend solely on a GPS.

    Loveland Pass is the alternate to I-70, not I-80. You can do it on the way back between Denver and Aspen.
