  1. You didn't say by how much time you could extend...

    You didn't say by how much time you could extend the 9 day car rental, but another 2 or 3 days could make the difference for you. A lot of it is personal preferences, how long are you happy to drive...

    Yellowstone isn't too far out the way seeing as you are going to Glacier, it's having the time to actually see the place that may be the problem. Usually you need a good 3 days to see Yellowstone...

    Please do!

    Of course, that's what we are here for and it helps us keep sane while we are between trips ourselves !! As Buck touched upon, City's are much the same to me as well. If you are looking for...

    Blast from the past !

    Wow ! I can't believe this trip happened over a decade ago, I sure hope this new one slows down a little as I have no idea where the time went.



    As George said it's Photobucket's way of making...

    It's a big place !

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    As a road trip site we always prefer the drive but you have 2 options really. One is to do as planned and drive from NOLA to the West coast, or you could fly...

    Yellowstone can be wonderful at that time of year but the weather is unpredictable so far in advance. You can find (if available) some reasonably priced lodging options in Yellowstone such as the...

    Welcome back.

    That must have been awful for you, I'm so glad it all worked out in the end and that now you will have chance to share a US roadtrip with your Kids in the future.

    Sounds like a lot of fun !

    Tell us more about your plans and we will be able to offer you some more info and ideas as to where to start. Do you own an RV or will you be renting ? How many travelling, what are your interests...
  9. Don't make a mountain out of a mole hill. (Excuse the pun)

    I am not trying to make light of your anxiety but honestly you will be fine on the Interstate and it won't look like the above pictures. You have to go over mountains no matter what and Interstate is...

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You don't say from where in Nebraska you are setting out from but wherever it is you will need the minimum of 2 overnight stops. If your goal is getting...

    Good start.

    Randy McNally atlases and maps are popular and I tend to opt for State by State maps such as this one. Lots available on line.



    That's a lot to fit into 2.5 weeks and would be too much if it...

    So much more to see away from the City.

    Hello and welcome to RTA ! Fellow Brit here.

    As Buck mentioned, driving between 500-550 miles in any one day is the maximum we would recommend for safety (and possibly sanity) issues but to make...

    The weather is a potential problem not the route.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    The truth is all major routes are as safe as they could be but the weather is another thing that could bring poor conditions and disruption. The fact is you...

    Winter weather gets everywhere !

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Allowing for 5-6 days of travel gives you some 'wiggle' room for possible weather disruption. Going miles out of your way to try and drive around poor weather...
  15. Sticky: Poll: Ice is also an issue.

    It's not just the amount of snow that falls they consider when deciding on road conditions. Ice is a real danger on the high ground so I think they weigh up the whole siyutaion when deciding whether...

    I agree with what has been said already, you need to budget for some cheap Motels at least. Being in the car and then expect to sleep in it through is going to be very uncomfortable, not to mention...
  17. Poll: Yes.

    Well fair play to them for keeping their word and altering the way around they have written the closing date information as you requested.

    Keep an eye out for the new Spring 2020 opening...

    Sticky: A bit better fuel return with newer rentals.

    Great thread Donna !!



    It's always best to plan costs with a certain amount of caution but if renting a new(ish) class 'C' RV of 25ft or 30ft in lenght we normally see a return of 8.5 to 9mpg....

    Sticky: Living with the basics.

    If you are in the wilderness for a couple of days or more a pack of wet wipes come in real handy for personal care and many are 100% Biodegradable these days.

    Apologies.

    Thanks for picking up on that Buck, my bad. It was a typo that was meant to have said "and (only) if all goes well it's possible in 6 days".

    Having what ever time is needed available and remaining as flexible as possible is key here. If your leaving date is flexible then you have a better chance of finding a 'window of opportunity' where...

  24. Sticky: Poll: Confirmed.

    It's now official, the Tioga pass closed November 19th for the winter. We have a new DcTpp (Darn close Tioga Pass prognosticator) in anuj1985 who predicted November 20th at 8am.

    Dave.
  25. Sticky: Poll: Cold and more snow due.

    There is more heavy snow due right through this week with temperatures barely getting above freezing. Still no official confirmation on the closing date.
