    Welcome to the RTA Forum! How much time do you...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    How much time do you have for the trip, and do you have any goals other than seeing the National Parks of Utah?

    As just a very base idea, I'd plan to do some kind of...
  2. It depends upon specifically where you're going...

    It depends upon specifically where you're going in MN, but assuming it's the Greater Minneapolis/St. Paul area, I would skip using I-90 at all and instead take I-80 all the way to Iowa and shoot up...
  3. Welcome to the RTA Forum! I-80 is almost...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I-80 is almost certainly your best bet, although to be honest, Tahoe would be the part I would be least concerned about. You should be able to see the forecast over...
  4. I have to agree with what others have posted....

    I have to agree with what others have posted. Despite COVID, it seems like an airplane is really your safest option here. While it's not an absolute, airplanes do seem to be a relatively low...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    If you're just looking at a scenic drive, perhaps you could make your way down the Mississippi River down to Natchez MS, and then make your way back by following the...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I think you have your routes/descriptions reversed, but the first list of highways (I-81/I-40, etc), that would take you through VA and TN, is about 100 miles shorter and...
  7. It sounds like you want to avoid snow mostly...

    It sounds like you want to avoid snow mostly because you don't have experience with it, but as others have mentioned, you really should be ready for the possibility of it pretty much anywhere past...
  8. Dallas or Houston

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    Are you planning to start from Dallas or Houston - because you say Houston in the body of your post, but you put Dallas in the title and referenced 1700 miles, which...
  9. If I were you, I would not prebook rooms,...

    If I were you, I would not prebook rooms, especially on the first night where you have the largest chance to see traffic or weather issues. New Years day isn't a peak time for motels, so you're not...
  10. Welcome to the RTA Forum! As far as routes,...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    As far as routes, personally would take I-40 one way and I-10 the other, because the distance isn't much different. Going along the border itself wouldn't be a concern,...
  11. Assuming that there will be no traffic problems...

    Assuming that there will be no traffic problems on I-95 between NY and Richmond is kind of a fools errand.

    I will guess that being that Jan 1 is on a Friday this year, so holiday traffic should...
  12. Welcome to the RTA Forum! I can't say how much...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I can't say how much time it will save - especially when you're talking about a part of the country where Traffic backups are routine. The time of day, day of the week,...
  13. Sticky: No doubt this is an unusual year, and it is hard...

    No doubt this is an unusual year, and it is hard to say how the pandemic will impact the closing - although the fact that they are ending the reservation system on 11/1 does make it seem like that's...
  14. Sticky: June 15

    I hate to disagree with the sheriff, but it seems pretty clear that NPS declared the pass to be open on June 15th. The CalTrans site also lists June 15 as the opening date.

    Yes, reservations have...

    Welcome to the RTA forum!

    We appreciate you looking at old threads, but since each trip is different, we like to give each trip its own thread.

    Overall, I think you've done your homework, as...

    It certainly is an interesting idea with some potential, but it's also getting to be kind of a crowded marketplace for that sort of thing.

    You've got Harvest Hosts and Boondockers Welcome that...

    I would look at Google-fi, since I believe they will ping off of almost anyone's tower.

    But as Donna mentioned, even there, within national parks you're going to have very limited service at all....

    There are signs on I-80 in Nebraska warning of the I-70 closure. I-76 certainly has far less traffic than usual.

    Was in Fort Collins yesterday, and the smoke in town was thick, presumably from the...

    Realistically, your options are nearly endless. Basically any of the couple dozen national parks in the 4 corners states could be fit into your trip without too much of a detour. That is too say,...

    Another one

    My favorite little road numbering oddity like that is for MN-23.

    A small section of the road actually goes through Wisconsin, but it is still considered MN-23. It's just south of Duluth, as the...
  21. The general route I'd probably take would be...

    The general route I'd probably take would be I-90/I-71/I-70/I-44/I-40 - which would take you through Cleveland, Columbus, St. Louis, and Oklahoma City. That avoids most tolls, particularly Chicago,...

    US-2 doesn't go to Door County. Also, I can't think of any tolls in this area (or anywhere is Wisconsin actually.) The only thing I could think you're talking about would be the ferry, if you decided...

    I honestly can't believe any American school is even thinking of restarting in person classes within the next month, even though that's exactly what many are planning. Baseball has really been a...

    I would not consider hauling the car, and unless you have some really compelling reason, would actually consider towing in this case to be a pretty bad idea.

    First, I suspect towing would put you...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I would encourage you to check out auto driveaway services that do what you want in a professional, and insured, fashion. You'll be at the whims of what cars they may...
