    Being Ready for the Weather

    If the dates for your travel are relatively fixed, then to avoid inclement weather, you need to be able to adjust your route on the fly. Thus I gave you three possible routes. Flexibility will be...

    Alternatives and Additions

    It's always a good idea, but especially in winter, to have at least one back-up plan. As you set up your trip, keep that in mind. And since you're looking for other things to see and do along the...

    One More Resource

    One of the more 'interesting' towns along your proposed route is Oatman AZ. Just be aware that old route 66 east from town towards Kingman is not marked as US-66 any longer (US-66 was decommisioned...
  4. ...And See as Much as We Can

    Ah... the perfect definition of a RoadTrip. So what are some other things to see besides those you've already listed? I've already mentioned Petrified Forest National Park. I also mentioned that...
  5. Ten Days Would Work Much Better Than Seven

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    The simple fact is that you can hit every one of your stated destinations relatively easily on a round-trip RoadTrip, but you're looking at a minimum of...

    Five or Six Days: The Decision Point

    As Donna pointed out, at 2,400 miles(±) by the most direct route (I-94/I-90/I-29/I-70/I-64/I-57/I-24), you won't really have much time for major sight-seeing stops, certainly not if they entail...

    Not What We Do Generally

    Very Doable

    Three Digit Interstates

    There's absolutely nothing requiring that a three digit Interstate designation be unique, only that it be locally unambiguous. Thus any three digit I-X80 designation used significantly east of San...

    Lexington is not Just in Massachusetts

    Personally, I've always been fond of Lexington VA. Another walkable, charming southern town, it's almost exactly 2/3rds of the way back to Princeton.

    A Possible Alternate Route

    One thing I always try to do on out-and-back RoadTrips is to take different routes each way. I also suspect that you're already looking at the computer-preferred route up through DFW and Amarillo to...

    There's also a short segment of TN/VA-1 in Bristol, which straddles the state line. But it's only a couple of dozen city blocks long which I don't think of as a 'highway' or 'road', but rather a...

    Just a Guess

    I don't know for sure, but since the road is marked as two different state highways, I would assume that the appropriate state police patrol their respective sides of it. If you think about it, most...

    A Unique Road

    Normally when we suggest routes and state "Use (say) MO/AR-5", we mean use MO-5 until you cross into Arkansas and then use AR-5 (or vice-versa). But if I tell you to use DE/MD-54, I am telling you to...

    A Detail or Two

    I agree with Donna that you want to avoid I-95 down through Baltimore and Washington (which is also toll in part, by the way) and that I-295 to I-276 is the better way to go. But you'll have to use...

    I Wouldn't

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Just taking a look at CA-299 on various mapping routines, it looks awfully twisty, with switch-backs, narrow lanes, and often no shoulder. When I went...
  19. I Know

    Donna (and Erin): I was aware that this trip would be by camper/RV when I made the suggestion. By 'booking lodging' I simply meant to include all reservations, including campgrounds. I would still...
  20. Skeleton First, Then the Flesh

    I completely understand your feeling overwhelmed at this point. It's a huge trip and you're just getting started on your planning. One way to make the task simpler is to do just one thing at a time. ...

    Not Sure What You're Asking

    Slight Alteration(s)

    Warning...

    If you have an Android phone, as I do, and go to the Play Store, you will find a similarly named app: Here Hear. It is NOT the same thing at all but rather an app to treat anxiety!?!?
