    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I've got to say, this seems like kind of a strange plan. There's certainly plenty to do in between South Dakota and Northern Arizona, but it's actually a case where there...

    If it's just the 2 of you, a trailer seems kind of excessive to me. I've packed a car smaller than a Corolla for camping trips. You'll need to use the back seat for some storage, and may have to...

    I love Dave's suggestion of looking for home rentals, especially with a large family. I wouldn't even limit it to days where you'll be in a place for a few nights. Even for a single overnight, such...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    When you traveled 30 years ago, did you use US-40 or I-40? They both highways that could be used, but would be very different experiences. You mentioned "best interstate"...

    It should be noted that the rental car market is kind of getting squeezed from both sides. The demand for rental cars is growing quickly, as it deals with the large influx of people who have started...

    Its certainly a very expensive year to rent a car.

    I was in Hawaii a few weeks ago, while I booked my car a couple months in advance and got a pretty typical and expected rate ($300ish per week)...

    I imagine you were trying to be funny, but that's not necessarily a contradiction. Indiana Dunes National Park is not that far from Chicago, and even has a commuter rail stop within walking distance...

    Have you looked at the Saratoga Springs/Lake George areas? That's a certainly a popular getaway area for people in the NYC area, and should have a fair bit to keep you interested. It's not exactly...

    Impossible Math

    It is not physically possible to drive from Boston to Monterey in 2 days, we're not even talking issues with safety or sleep. There are simply not enough hours in the day. In real world conditions,...

    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    I don't think there is a one size fits all answer here.

    Certainly, if you are going to be staying in one spot for a few days, then, yes, I could see where renting a...

    I'll be honest, I have zero interest in doing the food challenge. However, $72 for 5 pounds of ribeye plus all those sides feels like one hell of a deal!

    Your previous thread indicated you are going from So Cal to Montana with a 5th wheel, is this a different trip or is it just a continuation of that one? You're talking about cabins and motels here,...

    Average May temps in DV are about 100F during the day and 70 at night. Being that it usually cools off quickly after sundown, the camping shouldn't be too much of a problem as long as you can deal...

    Two things that stand out.

    Bryce Canyon is north of Zion, so it would make sense to do that first. In early may, only the South Rim is open, but I'm guessing you're planning on going via Page/Lake...
