  1. No

    Welcome Aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    There is no way that you can safely drive from Raleigh to San Francisco in four days. Period. Having two drivers (if you in fact do) is no help. You...

    A Stop Is Required

    If you plan to visit both Canyonlands and Arches, as well as cover the over 500 miles between Moab and Las Vegas (including 'detours' to the two parks, then an additional overnight stop on the night...

    Basically

    There is only one basic route that gets you to your destination in a reasonable amount of time. That direct route is I-88 west out of Chicago to the Quad Cities, then I-80 for most of the rest of the...

    Also....

    Since your drive is still going to be mostly about driving, I'd suggest the I-40 route which I have found to be generally a bit more interesting than the I-10 route. You could start by heading up...

    Little Help?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    There are two main, and nearly equal, routes between Phoenix and Atlanta. One basically follows I-10/I-20; the other follows mostly I-40. Both are...

    For Scenery...

    The main problem you have is that you've got to cross a whole lot of the Great plains before you get to what you might call scenery. (No offense to the Great Plains - I was born there.) While either...

    A Couple of Things

    For your earlier trip we had several suggestions. Those all still stand although now you simply won't have time to do them all. Looking at your previous posts also makes it clear that you will be...

    ASAP: As Short As Possible

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!an.php

    The truth is that the best thing for your father, for whom this is going to be an uncomfortable trip, I suspect, is to keep it as short as...

    (Straight) To the Point

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    At a shade over 1600 miles but the route I'm going to recommend is indeed a full three day drive one-way. While not the shortest route in miles, that...

    Two that Might Work

    While they aren't on the most direct route to Las Vegas (That would be asking too much!), you might want to check out these two and see if you can build a route and itinerary that lets you use one...
  11. Well Said

    I could not agree more! As a former health care worker myself, I will never understand why people think they know more than the professionals. Do they go to witch doctors, or worse, buy into...

    Doable vs. Enjoyable

    As Dave noted, it very much depends on what sort of experience you want and other, unknown, factors of your trip. If your eight days includes the days spent flying into and out of Las Vegas, then no,...

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    I thank you for "the great advice and info" kudo. I just hope you're willing to take it. Because the best advice we can give you is to take more than...

    A Couple of Things...

    One good, one bad, so let's deal with the bad one first. Death Valley to Twin Falls is right around 550 miles, depending on where in the valley you start from. That is almost entirely on two-lane...

    Route and Other Suggestions

    OK, the route... Here's the thing you have to be aware of: Interstate Highways are designed to connect large concentrations of people. So, for example, if you were to follow the route an on-line...

    Non-Commercial Fun

    I've driven between Maine and Delaware perhaps a 100 times or so, and there are ways to avoid New York City if you'd like. Depending on where in Maine you live, half-way would be roughly in the...

    A Blast from the Past

    As Dave mentioned, a good place to start at this stage is to look at past RoadTrip reports and scour them for ideas that you might find interesting to that end, here's one such report that covers...

  19. Feel Free to Disagree, But...

    "Is 39 worth the extra time?" That's up to you. I would definitely trade 2 hours of driving through a built-up area (SLC/Ogden/Brigham City/Logan), all on superslabs of four-lanes, for a 3½ hour...
  20. The List Could Be Endless

    My apologies for taking so long to get back to you. I'm a big fan of both the lesser-known units of our national park system and our 50 various state park systems. So let's see which of those might...
  21. We Don't Know!

    Unfortunately, the link you provided shows only a map with dots on it. We do not have access to what those dots mean. For example, there is a dot in Idaho Falls, but what is it about that town that...
  22. Your Route Options

    Let's just run down the two best all-Interstate options you have. BTW, I used Groton as your starting point.

    1) Shortest: I-95 to Rye NY, I-287 around NYC, I-80 through PA and OH where it merges...
  23. Once is Not Always

    I would be VERY hesitant to use anecdotal stories (e.g.: "I tried doing this pass last year...Perhaps I’m just a baby about driving THOSE mountains in winter... but they’re scary.") That's one...

    Scenic Drives to/from New York

    Since the first 'target' you listed was New York (presumably NYC) let's start there. There are certainly several scenic options, enough that you could take different routes out and back. So let's...

    Nope

    We usually don't disagree much with each other, but I'm going to take issue with Dave here a bit. With the route you've laid out, the fact that you "don't [want to] have to kill it each day", and...
