    We stayed in Driggs after our trip through Yellowstone a few years back (2014). It was small town and very quiet -- unlike West Yellowstone or Jackson!

    Some driveways aren't level, which (depending on which way the bed is, in a particular camper) could be interesting. Some are also too short for much more than a popup.

    If you have to take a meeting at a national park, you will be lucky to get reception anywhere. In Yellowstone, for instance, about the only places I found reception was at Old Faithful and in the...

    Welcome to RTA!

    It's around 875 miles, so if you wanted to do the "bulk of the driving" on the first day and still do it safely, I wouldn't go more than 550 miles. That's pretty much a "work...

    Public campgrounds along US-93, which runs from Wickenburg, AZ to the Canadian border in MT, do exist, though it may mean some trekking down a dirt road. All campgrounds are within 20 miles of the...

    Towing a trailer, I wouldn't want to take CA-36. It is a favorite of logging trucks who do not necessarily drive the speed limit (going up or down or around those curves).

    You can do similar, though - if you want private campgrounds, you just search "RV parks near (where ever). If you want public campgrounds, some will...

    Hi, welcome to RTA!

    Even an RPod can seriously compromise a pick-up. Are you sure you've got enough truck for your trailer? My husband and I had a full-size pickup that used to struggle with 6%...

    At 2900 miles (I calculated from Dover), you are looking at 5 days of 550 miles. Unfortunately, this means you probably won't have time for long sight-seeing anyway. You may be...
