    Hi Lifey.

    You sure have had many adventures and made many great memories in the van !! Time to make some more in a slightly different way.

    Good luck.

    Hi Utahtea.

    This sounds like a fun trip to look forward to ! It also seems like a lenghty one as you say a Fall trip but will arrive to the parks in late July to mid August ! (?) I cant help with...

    Good to know.

    Thanks for the update. Glad you made the cross country trip safely, even though the dog didn't enjoy it by the sounds of things !

    Dave.
  10. Possibly, but..........

    For planning purposes I don't think you should count on averaging between 60 and 75mph each day. Perhaps on a really good day you could cover 300 miles in 5 hours but I would plan on no more than...

    Just to add, you would also have the option to stay in a small cabin like those found at Rising sun Motel and cabins by St Marys lake in Glacier NP and Canyon lodge and cabins in Yellowstone. Perhaps...

    It sounds as though you are in the (very) early stages of planning but you have given yourself a good amount of time to work things out. Yes you could certainly drive from Colorado to California and...

    Please do not even attempt this, no route would be safe doing so!! It would be an impossible task with 3 experienced adults swapping shifts but with kids and pets it would also be cruel. In the real...

    If time is not an issue take as long as you want, or what your budget will allow. I agree that a couple of weeks would be a starting point for a leisurely trip allowing for a day at each end of your...

    Parks can be enjoyed without going on long hikes, it's a case of whether or not you enjoy areas of outstanding natural beauty.

    Absolutely !! I'd say thats the essence of a road trip and most importantly, making it your own unique experience. Once you have decided what that will be we can help fill in some blanks, answer...

    My 2 cents worth.

    I agree what has already been said and that's it's your trip for you to decide where to go and then we can help you put it together and make suggestions. However, if it was me I would fly into Vegas...
  19. Lots of options.

    As Donna mentions, you would be looking at 7-8 days, or 7 overnight stops. To spend 2 or 3 days at each would and you could be looking at 3 weeks for a one way trip so if it fits into your time span,...

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    Other than "Checking off states" you haven't told us anything to help make meaningful suggestions. What are your interests ? How much time do you have ? ...
  21. Home rentals ?

    Another option regarding lodgings. If you were thinking of staying in one spot for a few nights you could consider renting a home or cabin for the family with companies such as Airbnb.
  22. Plan with flexibility

    If you have somewhere to pin a wall map that would be a good way to get started using pins to plot and sticky notes to highlight facts. I use RTA maps, Google, paper maps and a jotter to take notes...
  23. Lots to consider as you move forward with planning.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !!

    You have a nice amount of time to do plenty of exploring. Technically you could drive straight across country in 5 or 6 days but that wouldn't be much fun ! ...
  24. Sticky: Poll: A new DcTpp ?

    It would appear to be that Tioga pass did open this morning as planned. If this is the case Utahtea would have just missed out on the prize but will be crowned the new DcTpp (Darn close Tioga pass...
  25. Sticky: We hope so too.

    Hi Mark.

    This sounds like a great event and celebration of RTA's long term success !! Of course we would love to come, but we will have to wait and see if it is possible for us to attend before...
