If you agree to the terms, please check the 'I agree' checkbox** and press the 'Register' button below. If you would like to cancel the registration, click here to return to the forums index.

Although the administrators and moderators of RoadTrip America will attempt to keep all objectionable messages off this site it is impossible for us to review all messages. All messages, maps, Custom Places, and/or photos express the views of the author, and neither the owners of RoadTrip America nor nor vBulletin Solutions, Inc. (developers of this Forum's software) will be held responsible for the content of any message.

RTA Library RoadTrip Attractions, Routes & Maps are checked for accuracy and proper placement on the maps, but there is no guarantee of accuracy. And considerably less so if you're looking at maps, routes, or custom places created by any of the members (non-RTA Library) of this roadtripping community.

Please check your POP-Up settings on your browser! If your browser is blocking pop-ups, about 500f the built-in support functions we've added will not work on RTA. Every single page on the RTA Custom Mapping program has support messages that appear on the page to guide you when you are working on creating your maps. Plus, you will not be able to create Custom Places, nor see the ones that we've published for your use. Also, the Private Messaging (PM) system uses the pop-ups to respond to your queries. If you want to use RTA's system, you'll want to ENABLE POP-UPS ON YOUR BROWSER!

To be clear.... There are no pop-up advertising placements on the RTA site. We'd hate to have you miss half of the road trip planning tools we've created for your use, because you had pop-ups blocked on your browser settings!

The administrators of RoadTrip America may use your e-mail address to send you news and information from time to time of interest to roadtrippers. Your e-mail address will not be sold or shared in any way for any other reason.

By agreeing to these rules, you warrant that you will not post any messages, maps, custom places, routes and/or photos that are obscene, vulgar, sexually oriented, hateful, threatening, or violate any laws.

New members are not allowed to post external links in their posts, even if these are links to their own websites. Being able to post external links is an earned right on the Great American RoadTrip Forum and is generally allowed after a member has posted more than 10 posts. There are exceptions, if the link is deemed to be an exceptionally good resource for the membership. If you have any questions about constitutes "exceptional value" please contact any one of the Moderators.

Members may post external links of their own choosing on their personal maps and routes, created on the RTA Custom Maps program. This does not apply to any maps to be posted on the Great American RoadTrip Forum.

The owners of RoadTrip America reserve the right to remove, edit, move or close any thread, photo album or other photos for any reason.
