    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.
  2. 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...

    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...
  11. 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 ? ...
  13. 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.
  14. 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...
  15. 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 ! ...
  16. 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...

    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...

    You could easily spend 2 or 3 days in Rocky mountain NP and there are many more attractions in Colorado where you could create a nice loop around the State. Things such as the Colorado NM, Mesa...

    Also, Washground campground at Hearst San Simeon SP and Cayucos beach has the Bella Vista by the sea RV park. I haven't stayed at either so can't comment on them.
  20. Sticky: Poll: Failed link.

    Maybe I slipped through the net as I can still visit the link and I haven't subscribed !

    It was an article including interviews with some long serving Caltran workers with regards to clearing the...

    Digging around for a sniff of info on whats happening right now on the pass didn't produce much in the way of an update but I did stumble upon this article which I found quite interesting with input...
  22. Thats a good day in the road.

    By mileage, Lebec CA would of been right around the distance we would recommend for a decent, yet safe day on the road.

    Thanks for checking in.

    As you are staying in MV and Grand canyon village the east entrance into the Grand canyon would be on the natural route anyway. There is plenty to see and do in Zion so whether or not to do a tour...
