    DTSPoway, I sent you a private mail.

    Poway to Gallup is right about 660 miles, MWMichael, going via I-8/AZ-85/I-10/Loop-303/I-70/I-40. That's how our odometer clocked it! I couldn't tell you...

    With a daughter and her family near Aurora, and living in San Diego County (probably not too far from you) myself, I've been up and down all three routes. All 3 are fine.

    Yes, I'd agree that things are a wee bit unbalanced. A few years back, we did a trip that took in many of those sites, and here's how ours were balanced:

    My parents were stuck in Van Horn once, with their travel trailer. But for them, it wasn't avoiding the northern travel -- I believe they were enroute between Casa Grande, AZ and Houston, TX. So they...

    Welcome to RTA!

    When I'm planning a trip, it helps if I have maps or an atlas of the area. Do you have one? If not, you can order one from the RTA Store or get one locally. 900 miles probably...

    Here's a female viewpoint.

    Over my life, I've road-tripped in many types of vehicles: from station wagons to Suburbans-Blazers, to compact cars (not enough space), to mini-vans (Aerostar and...

    I like the thought of that route that GLC suggested, but I would like to give you a bit of warning. After you take the bypass around Lake of the Ozarks, there's a lot of construction just before you...
