    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Is there a reason you're going to Charlotte as your first stop? The distance is doable, but it's kind of a big detour, especially when all you really have time for is for...
  2. Sticky: Wednesday Reopening - Odd/Even Restrictions

    The map Mark posted is correct, however, it doesn't take effect until 8 a.m. Wednesday, June 22, 2022. The park will remain closed until then.

    When the park does reopen, there will be a new entry...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think that looks like a very reasonable trip outline. If anything, I'd say there are some area's you could cut down. For example, Lake Havasu to the Grand Canyon could...
  4. Sticky: Closed until June 21, 2022

    The latest update from the National Parks Service confirms that they do not expect roads the northern portion of Yellowstone National Park to reopen this year. Many of the roads are just gone and...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum, Clinton!

    This is an 11 year old thread, so if you're referencing whatever discount code was referenced in a previous post, it's probably no longer available. If you have...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think the route using I-39/I-74/I-57 straight down the middle of Illinois is your best bet. It's all freeway and doesn't have any obvious traffic spots, and has only 1...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I presume this is a one way trip, which means you've got a nice amount of time for this journey. It's about 2000 miles, so you could make the trip in as little as 4 days,...

    It's worth noting that you've asked about traveling to San Francisco/out west a few times now, and on your previous threads you were given several suggestions for non-interstate alternatives to I-70....

    Welcome to the RTA Forum, Izzie!

    Those are all great things to see, but this thread is from 2007, so I suspect the OP's trip has long since come and gone.

    I'm aware of them, including the claim of their "world's largest convenience store" in New Braunfels, but I've never stopped at one. I actually didn't realize they had spread beyond Texas, much less...

    That would add a lot of miles and almost certainly cost more in extra gas than the 2 or 3 tolls you have in IL.

    I believe those tolls will cost you about $3. If you really want to avoid them, take...

    If this is my trip, I'm skipping Cody this time and saving it for when I do go to Yellowstone. To me, this is just too much of a detour just to see a rodeo. While it doesn't look that far afield by...

    If I'm reading this right, you're going all the way to Cody, but you're just spending the night and then heading to glacier, and not visiting Yellowstone? That feels like an odd choice?

    It's also...

    As both Dave and NoFanofCB have indicated, I think you missed the point of Dave's original advice.

    The suggestion wasn't that you needed to slow it down a bit, it was a reality check that covering...

    As Dave mentioned, those are perfectly good roads, but they are mostly 2 lane roads, and more importantly, they go through some pretty remote, unpopulated areas.

    If the roads are clear, it's a...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    This looks like a very good plan and I don't see much anything I'd suggest changing. The only thoughts I have are pretty minor potential tweaks. I'd perhaps give one more...

    I think you're on the right track in terms of route, but as Buck indicated, Time isn't exactly on your side, yet time is the single most important thing you want on a winter trip.

    The route you've laid out is an excellent starting point, and exactly what I would do. I-90 is often a better choice than I-80, especially across the Rockies. This route also does give you the...

    I'm just a couple hours north of you and I used to have family in Tampa/Clearwater so I've made this drive many times.

    Historic US-99 seems like a tough thing to really get behind when a large portion of it just became CA-99. Frankly, I can think of quite a few decommissioned US highways that continue on as state...

    The biggest issues with I-80 and I-70 are elevation.

    I-70 crosses the Colorado rockies at over 10,000 ft.
    I-80 across Wyoming doesn't go as high, but is still over 8,000 ft across much of...
