  1. Sticky: Poll: Yes, when shopping around.

    Yes, that's a good ball park figure, higher prices as you would expect on Motorways.
  2. Sticky: Poll: Oh I wish !

    You sure know how to make an Englishman weep !

  3. Sticky: That's cool !

    That's a really cool article and a great story you have created for yourselves. Congratulations, you both deserve the recognition !

    Dave.
  4. Sticky: Poll: Yeah that's bad luck.

    Yes I think you were unfortunate there Donna. After opening to cycles it's usually just a case of opening up to motorized vehicles a day or 2 later.

    As always we will wait for official...
  5. Sticky: Poll: Opening !?!

    The Tioga pass opens to bicycles today and will be open to them tomorrow before being closed again, due to possible hazards during construction repairs between May 23rd through to 26th.

    Interstate ?

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    If your aim is to get there as quickly and safely as possible you will need one overnight stop to break the journey. Although slightly over 100 miles longer...

    A few more to consider.

    Heading south to Clorado Springs you could visit Garden of the Gods, Cave of the winds and even Pikes peak. From Woodland park it's quite a scenic drive along CO67 through Deckers. You could head to...

    I agree with Michael that Badlands, Mt Rushmore etc would make good detours not far off track. I also agree that another night in or around Yellowstone would be beneficial and memorable, it's...
  9. Comfortably done.

    Hello and welcome to the RTA forums !

    You won't have any trouble finding points to rest, eat and sleep along the way and without a desire to stop at places along the way, 5 days would be a pretty...
  10. Sticky: Poll: Wind and snow !

    There is a Hazardous weather warning in place with regards to strong winds in and around Yosemite and not ideal for Plow crews to be working in. We can also expect a few inches of fresh snow from...
  11. Sticky: Poll: The clean up and repairs begin.

    The crews have plowed the lenght of the road now they have to open it up, clear all the debris and get the service areas cleared and de-winterized and tasks such as repairing the road and remove any...
  12. Map out your own unique route.

    Its worth keeping in mind that you don't need to follow any preset route, you can create your own unique trip. You could try US50 through Colorado and stay along that course through Utah and Nevada...

    I too would recommend Olympic NP. Hurricane ridge offers spectacular views and Ruby beach and Hoh rain forest are great stops. Mt Rainier is another lovely NP, but then again all NP's are. Just take...
  14. Sticky: Poll: Final update from the winter rangers.

    Yes it's been a strange one, summed up on April 13th with the final post from the Tuolumne winter rangers shwon below.



    Dave.
  15. Sticky: Poll: Plowing has begun but winter isn't quite done yet !

    Plowing started on April 15th and the crews have got as far as Tenaya lake, but following the storm on the 22nd and 23rd of April they are expecting to find several feet of new snow along the entire...

    Hi. As you are doing a loop trip it doesn't matter where your start and end point is, so look for the best flight and rental deals combined. We (being from the UK) find that flying in and out of LA...
  17. Sticky: Poll: A hint of snow. Glacier point to remain closed through 2022.

    There is a little snow forecast for the second half of the week but it doesn't look as though it will amount to much. We should see the plows starting to work on the pass next week and some reports...
  18. No way.

    I agree you need at least 3 overnight stops to make it a safe journey. Do not take any notice of an electronic maps timing estimate, they are not for 'real world' conditions where humans need to...
  19. Sticky: Poll: As thought.

    Below is an update posted by Yosemite, as thought it's not good news !



    Dave.
  20. Sticky: Poll: Another drought year.

    Following on from heavy snows in December 2021, 2022 has been a dry one so far and early signs are indicating a low April 1st snowpack survey for a 3rd year of drought in a row, possibly the lowest...

    Sticky: F1 coming to Vegas !

    I'm not sure how big an impact Formula1 motor racing has had so far in the USA but it's a huge global sport/brand and it's coming back to Vegas after many years of trying to get a deal done ! I'm...
  24. Time and expectations.

    Hello and welcome to RTA !

    Good luck finding a road trip buddy and hope you have a great trip. One point I thought I would make is that this a minimum of 5 days driving, (all day with only basic...

    If you "flipped it" then Klamath Falls would be an option to overnight at. If you can leave home at a reasonable hour in the morning I would personally prefer to get more driving done on day 1 and...
