  1. From one Aussie to Another.

    Some years ago I visited Yellowstone NP in late May. Of the times I have been there - and you can't visit Yellowstone too often - it was the most wonderful visit. The animals were out with their...

    All good points, however....

    Donna and Mark both make good points. There are signigicant and interesting things to see/do in LA, and I have enjoyed them when I was there - many years ago. On the other hand the traffic is a...
  3. The first two days.

    So it was on the 1st October I set out to meet up with three other ladies in Beaufort, approx 150 kms west of Melbourne. None of us had met before. One other lady was retired and lives in her...
  4. A large map.

    If you are able to get a wall sized, detailed map of the United Staes, you'd find the overall planning tons easier. I prefer the maps the National Geographic Publish, for all the detail they have -...

    Ray, the comparison is the ease and the state of the road network. So much variety. Go to Perth you have ONE road, and Darwin is not much better. It is the ease of driving and the facilities...
  6. No comparison!!!

    Come now Ray, if you have previously driven in North America, you must be aware that there is no comparison. In the last six months I have taken two short trips through Victoria; driven to Goulburn...
  7. 1959 Earthquake Area, Montana.

    From west Yellowstone, to Shoshone Falls, if you take US 287, it will take you through the 1959 Earthquake area. A self drive tour takes you to all the spots of significance. A truly harrowing...
  8. A drive through Yellowstone is always worth it.

    Ray, if you are going to be in the area, Yellowstone is ALWAYS worth a visit, even if it is only a drive through. It will be slow and probably take several hours. Check the Yellowstone map on the...

    Sorry Keith, I was hoping 2020 would be a little better than 2019. But alas, it has not been. Still I refuse to give up. The weather and the smoke have not helped. Am only too conscious of...

  11. 2019 - 45 days - Melbourne to Port Hedland and back.

    It was what I needed. 2019 did not start well for me. With the threat of legal action hanging over my head, and not knowing the implications, I was stressed to the hilt! Stressed out to the...

    Suggestions for what?

    As Michael, mentioned we need much more information before we can be of much help.

    But my question is, are you looking for suggestions on what to do with the rig, when you want to stop to do some...

    Stay positive, and all the best.

    It was the situation at home which saw me leave in my teens as well. I left on good terms, and all I was given was money to make a phone call home, should I want to go home. It's been tough at...
  16. A contradiction??

    That sounds like a contradiction to me. Why not plan the main stops, and just take the rest on the fly. Keep your eyes and ears open, speak with the locals, and hear what their suggestions are. ...
  17. Thousands of options.

    If you have up to seven days to take this trip, then you have potentially thousands of options for scenic routes and places to see.

    I would opt for I-70 through Colorado and into Utah. ...
  18. 1959 Earthquake Area, Montana.

    If you should miss out on a spot within Yellowstone, there are many campgrounds very close outside the park. I was alerted and directed to one of them by the Yellowstone Visitor Centre in West...

    Another variation.

    When I rented with Enterprise last year, I planned on a town pick up in Greensboro to Raleigh Airport. Was told that it would be a $75 one way drop fee. However, if I picked up at Greensboro...

    State Maps

    I am pretty sure I picked up one last year. Was on route 7, at the Bennington Visitor Centre. Unfortunately I did not bring it home, so cannot confirm the accuracy of my memory.

    If you're going that far......

    Then it would be a great experience to head for the Canadian border at Derby Line VT. There you will find the Haskel Free Library and Opera House, the only building in the world which is built...
  23. But be alert!

    I gave up on that after finding on two occasions that the advertised price was not the price on the pump.

  24. You have all the facilities and security at truck stops.

    As a senior solo female traveller, I have to agree that truck stops are the most welcoming and safest places to stay. On the odd occasion that I have stayed at Walmarts (where it was allowed) I...

    Here's a thread which is being build at the moment. Probably the best place for you to start.

    There is also a forum on saving money on a road...
