    Suggestions for what?

    As Michael, mentioned we need much more information before we can be of much help.

    Stay positive, and all the best.

    It was the situation at home which saw me leave in my teens as well. I left on good terms, and all I was given was money to make a phone call home, should I want to go home. It's been tough at...
  4. A contradiction??

    That sounds like a contradiction to me. Why not plan the main stops, and just take the rest on the fly. Keep your eyes and ears open, speak with the locals, and hear what their suggestions are. ...
  5. Thousands of options.

    If you have up to seven days to take this trip, then you have potentially thousands of options for scenic routes and places to see.

    I would opt for I-70 through Colorado and into Utah. ...
  6. 1959 Earthquake Area, Montana.

    If you should miss out on a spot within Yellowstone, there are many campgrounds very close outside the park. I was alerted and directed to one of them by the Yellowstone Visitor Centre in West...

    Another variation.

    When I rented with Enterprise last year, I planned on a town pick up in Greensboro to Raleigh Airport. Was told that it would be a $75 one way drop fee. However, if I picked up at Greensboro...

    State Maps

    I am pretty sure I picked up one last year. Was on route 7, at the Bennington Visitor Centre. Unfortunately I did not bring it home, so cannot confirm the accuracy of my memory.

    If you're going that far......

    Then it would be a great experience to head for the Canadian border at Derby Line VT. There you will find the Haskel Free Library and Opera House, the only building in the world which is built...
  11. But be alert!

    I gave up on that after finding on two occasions that the advertised price was not the price on the pump.

  12. You have all the facilities and security at truck stops.

    As a senior solo female traveller, I have to agree that truck stops are the most welcoming and safest places to stay. On the odd occasion that I have stayed at Walmarts (where it was allowed) I...

    Welcome to the Great American Roadtrip Forum.

    Here's a thread which is being build at the moment. Probably the best place for you to start.

    There is also a forum on saving money on a road...
  14. Don't overlook US-83.

    Head up to I-40 east and take that to Childress TX. Turn north onto US-83 and take that all the way to I-90, then I-90 straight to Rochester.

    I drove this route only last year and found it to...

    Could not agree more.

    As a relatively frequent visitor to the US for family reasons, and one who stays for months, not weeks, I would put your itenirary in my four or five months. You just do not have the slightest...
  16. 4th July

    My next destination now was to head to NYC for the 4th July. I took my time, and several days to get to Boston, and visit son. Daughter was away. Mostly drove down US-1, with a few side trips...
  17. Detour will depend on which way you route.

    :-) Give my Regards to Duncan and John (the boss).

    Missoula is not really that far out of the way, if you enter the US through Lethbridge and Milk River, onto I-15. Shelby is a lovely little...
  18. Furthermore....

    When it comes to maps, you should be able to get detailed maps of the States through which you will be travelling from CAA - free if you are members.

    US-2 across Minnesota will take you near the...

    Relocating.

  23. You need to ask and look - but not on the w.w.w.

    Most automobile clubs worldwide have a reciprocal arrangement for travellers.

    The out of the way places you can learn about when you are chatting with the locals. Ask them where their favourite...
  24. A little aside.

    Dave, since this is not your first trip to the US, I wonder if you are aware that your automobile club (RACV, NRMA etc.) membership will give you access to free maps and tourism information from the...
